The aim of the text is to put on some light onto the problem of the contemporary situation of philosophy. Nowadays, exists the wide spread recognition that philosophy has come to its end because of the fact, that modernity has exhausted its momentum. This situation puts philosophers into the weird position of being forced to defend their right to exist. At the same time, the development of global civilization creates the agenda for questions that only philosophy can define and try to answer. Not only the facts created by contemporary physics and mathematics, but also the problems of a new phase of neoliberalism should be conceptualized in terms of traditional disciplines of philosophy. That is why, philosophy, as the socio-economical situation of modern world is far from being transparent, looks as the area of fruitful and inspiring insights.
