Summary/Abstract: The work deals with the elucidation of the temporal problems (the questions of Chronos, Kairos and Eternity) in the worldview concepts of Kierkegaard and Dosto evsky. The text argues that the two authors are of the same mind only with regard to the detrimental effect of prophanic time (chronos) on human existence. But they are full antagonists on the issue of how the kairotic moment transforms meaningless time into the fullness of Divine Eternity. According to Kierkegaard, this is only possible through a vague revelation of man's inner subjectivity, while for Dostoev sky this is impossible to achieve without the act of divine incarnation, that is, with out the visible iconic presence of the Divine Person.
