Summary/Abstract: The article introduces the theories of the Norwegian mountaineer and philosopher Peter Wessel Zapffe by reconstructing his philosophical biography. The attempt at outlining the contextualization of Zapffe’s unique philosophical conceptions, such as his philosophy of climbing, biosophy, and his existential theory of the feeling of cosmic panic, in a comparative perspective (in comparative philosophical and historical perspectives) not only affects the way his specific methodological contributions are displayed, but also clarifies why they have had a significant influence upon the development of twentieth-century Norwegian ecophilosophy.
