The aim of the essay is to give a positive theory of the status of a subject in Wittgenstein's late writings. His analyses of psychological phenomena such as: thinking, wanting, hoping etc., form a picture of human being, but from negative side only. In defining a man a negative answer is much easier to find - the problem arises when we try to formulate a positive one. We know that a man is not isolated being but who is he? The supposed Wittgenstein's answer is that a man is a being whose humanity lies 'outside' of him. The source of his spiritual life comes from the outer, from the region which traditionally we count as strange for us.
