Understanding the concept of man has led to explosive debates among scholars of various disciplines for centuries. The discussion becomes particularly acute when it comes to such problems as “what is man?”, “what constitutes his nature?”, and “where lies his essential feature?” Over the last decade, new studies in philosophical anthropology on the platform of metaphysics began to gain waves among some scholars. One strong pillar to this conviction is Mieczyslaw Albert Krapiec. The paper aims to discuss and analyze Krapiec’s doctrine of the cognitive “I” within the context of his philosophical anthropology. The analysis of Krapiec’s doctrine is to show the uniqueness of his anthropological study of man using metaphysical principles as the background of studies and the relevance of this new study in the contemporary discussion.
