The article shows certain elements of the philosophy of man in Polish modernism at the turn of the 20th century. It is noticed that there are clear analogies between the assumptions of Polish modernism and existential philosophy. In describing man, modernism emphasises the accidentality of human existence. Man is cast into the world and doomed for existence full of anxiety and distress. His existence, without the support of any lasting values, aims for death. Yet - as later in Sartre - this situation may be seen as triggering human activity. In such a situation man can feel truly responsible for himself and his world, and, unleashing his powers, can venture on a heroic, self- dependent act of creation.
