The author of the contribution discloses against a religious backdrop overriding motifs and aims of Faustus ́unbridled voluntarism. His driving force seems to be, in compliance with Schopenhauer ́s theory, human intellect. The overriding motif lies in his vision of being Almighty, which is reflected in his craving to be god-like. The human will oscillates in the space between a fallacious idea about the status of a deity and limitations of the academic knowledge. On a broader level, the author shows that the Faustian voluntarism affects not only Goethe ́s literary character but also man of the 21st century more than ever.
