Blumenberg’s phenomenological anthropology replaces the traditional question: what is human being? by the question: how is human being possible at all? The last question expresses a huge skepticism against “life-ability” in a manner of human existence. According to Blumenberg man can survive only if he distances himself – in a direct and in a metaphorical sense – from the overwhelming power of reality. As an animal that has eyes and moves on two legs man can secure himself from dangers and set traps for what he desires. In the metaphorical sense he distances himself from all-powerful reality through creating myths, religions, sciences, technique, art and culture. They are proven forms of to get over with anxieties and dangers human being faces in the terrible and anonymous world.
