Abstract (English):
The relevance of the present research comes from the need to reveal the primary personality type that is prevalent in the historical and social reality. On the one hand, the inherent antinomic condition directly connects the individual with the outside world. On the other hand, there is always some immanent content that remains within the individual, and reveals itself as their existential essence. In revealing the problem, the authors appeal to the existential personality type that vividly illuminates the social world in its objective component. The existential man is regarded as a type of personality whose subjective temporality prevails in relation to the objective historical time that is able to transcendence and embodies itself into the status of a free individual. The paper justifies such an important parameter of existential human as special historical memory based on the ability to go beyond the boundaries of one’s own being and get actively involved in the historical process while being aware of the responsibility to the world of others.
