Keywords: eupraxophy, humanism, secular humanism, “freedom”, “liberty”, mass, man of mass, freedom of will


The article deals with the study of linguocognitive approaches to the essence of concepts that are used in modern secular humanism. An analysis has been made of the content of such concepts as “eupraxophy”, “dasein”, “mass”, “man of mass”, “freedom” and “liberty” in their correlation with cognitive and linguistic-philosophical interpretation. It has been established that these concepts will not only help in determining the principles and views of scientists on the essence of a man, on his social life, but will also contribute to the disclosure of the nature of a man in the XXI century.
