In this paper, the idea of human existence is related to current issues of identities within a complex, technologically globalized modern world. Kierkegaard’s discourse seems very useful in this regard, because of its vivid narrative about obstacles arrising from the superficial offerings of freedom and knowledge that essentially supress the individual’s inner development. By conceptualizing existence and reason as polarities of human experience, it is not possible to implement the existential immediacy of the relationship between knowable structure of Being and the living issues of human beings. That is why, I sugest, their relating, which emerges from the qualitative nature of the state of presence - simultaneously belonging to individual’s interiority and to the external world - is of great importance.
