The article is an attempt to read Franz Kafka’s texts in the light of findings included in the article of the 20th-century philosopher and sociologist of religion, Jacob Taubes. For Taubes, Kafka’s key figure is exclusion, a phenomenon of alienness of characters created by the author of The Castle. “Kafka describes the world from the perspective of an outsider, who is desperately seeking the acceptance of the world”, he wrote. In this article, the philosopher’s words will be verified. The basic question is whether Taubes as the messianic bard of the revolution (whose presence in the national philosophical reflection became belatedly increasingly noticeable) does not use too radical simplification in his laconic interpretation of Kafka’s writing.
