Chuprov A. S.


The article offers an analysis of such symbols of human existence and nonexistence as cross and circle. The two basic types of relationships, spirit - nature (vertical) and subject-object (horizontal), which "penetrate" and organize human existence, are embodied in the symbol of cross. Being outlined by a circle, it makes a certain "quaternity", where each quarter segment symbolizes a relatively independent sphere of human existence, one of the four forms of human existence. Human nature is defined as follows: the human is a movement from nonexistence to nonexistence through existence.

Key words: symbol, existence and nonexistence, circle and cross, cosmo-centrism, antropo-centrism, theo-centricism, human nature, "circle of existence".
