Summary/Abstract: The article attempts to present the degree to which social capital is present and how it functions in contemporary Bulgarian society; social capital is broken down into measurable dimensions such as the feeling of security, social optimism, tolerance, trust. In this way, existential coziness is indicated as a person’s primeval rootedness in being. The deficit of existential coziness, i.e. the growing ontological unprotectedness of the person, lead to shrinking of the life horizons of communities, restricted effectiveness of social networks and collective action, and growing distances between social actors.
