There were two tendencies in ancient philosophy: according to the first one, our universe is unique (the Eleatics, Plato, Aristoteles), while according to the other, there are several universes, similar or totally dissimilar to ours (the Pythagoreans, the Atomists). Proponents of the first theory diverged in their opinion on the universe’s eternity though. Supporters of the second one argued over the similarity of another universes as well as the question if those universes co-exist or replace each other over time. These questions didn’t stop being actual in medieval Christian philosophy. But if there were no doubts about the question of an actual existence of our universe as being the only and unique, the question if God created only our universe was yet to be answered. St. Thomas Aquinas provides several evidences of the uniqueness of the universe – two from the ‘authority’ and three from himself.

This paper is dedicated to the comparative analysis of existential ontological concepts of M. Heidegger and H. Plessner from the perspective of philosophical anthropology. Unlike Heidegger, whose doctrine of human existence required the analysis of a priori structures of existence to precede the disclosure of the sense of being, Plessner refutes the existential ontological substantiation of the whole world-view in the pre-empirical anthropology as in the doctrine of «being-consciousness». According to Plessner, the philosophy of man is impossible without the philosophy of nature, as far as the human mode of existence can be perceived only as a mode of being of a natural entity. Therefore the subject of philosophy should not be the theoretical, but the «living», or natural, existence.
