Spirova, E. M. The Phenomenon of Symbol in Interpretation of Human

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2012-2 , pages 42-50.

Resume: The article provides the idea that conception of a symbol s a special phenomenon determined philosophical interpretation of human in many ways. In Antique culture human was mostly thought to be a biological creature. Another interpretation of a symbol as a sign of another world invisibly connected with the earth changed the concept of human, too. From now then, according to medieval concepts, human is interesting and significant not only for what he shows but also for what he hides. The symbol shows that human is not a mere connection of soul, body and spirit. Human unites opposites and incompatibilities.

Keywords: philosophy, human, allegory, symbol, image, biological creature, philosophical anthropology, sing, soul, mythology.
