This article – devoted to the memory of Professor Barbara Skarga – inquires and tries to solve a question regarding the status of the human mortality marked by the spirit of tragedy. This aforementioned inquire is inextricably related to the understanding of a certain form of consciousness of human being (inhabiting world and life) and which is its most appropriate good. On the one hand it refers to a self–consciousness close to that one which is expressed in the philosophical approach and on the other hand it refers to some kind of consciousness different to the former. Its difference stems from a distinct tone of a initial question which opens up the possibility of thinking.
