Summary/Abstract: The article discusses contemporary spiritual problems of man losing the perspective of his life. The basic problem presented is a dialogic dimension of relations confronted with dilemmatic existential problems. We ask about the sense of human and the world’s existence and we try to answer the question: Who is man in an external and internal dialogue? Furthermore, we depict the existential dialogue against the drama of man’s life. We have a vision of man expressed in the dimensions of homo creator, homo sapiens and homo cogitans.One discovers the sense of life in one’s self-fulfilment as far as he can. Writing one’s own “book of life” in existential dialogue, marked with fear and misery, one is trying to balance them with hope which is a cultural code characterized by the sense and values.
