Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the philosophical-historical aspect of a human positioned between the external world and the inner self, primarily on the relationship of man towards the contemporary society and the values imposed by it. Related to these aim, the article will: (a) put the focus on belief as a basis of man’s relationship with himself and with the external world, and on the contemporary society which cannot prosper without the man who believes, regardless of what the belief refers to (God, moral good, ideology, human rights, self being); (b) put emphasis on the issue of man as an issue on development of humanity which carries the responsibility on the decision about the future within which he sees himself through the three forms of modern heresy: individualism, secularism, and collective truism.
