Summary/Abstract: What is “application” according to its basic meaning, and what does it mean when it is used with philosophical pretensions? How does the relationship between application and philosophy, viz. the role of applied philosophy develop in a context outside hermeneutics, and how can it be thought of in a hermeneutical perspective? How is the question related to the hermeneutical sense of “application” connected to the question of the application of philosophy? And how does contemporary philosophical hermeneutics contribute to the exploration of this relationship? In the thread of my present study I argue in favour of the philosophical actuality of the application, actuality which consists precisely in its possibility to bring philosophy once again closer to human being and life.
