The study represents the author’s interpretation of the concept by P. Sloterdijk. The spherological approach allows us to expand the boundaries of human understanding through the convergence of psychology, phenomenology and philosophical anthropology. The origins of spherology as an element of vital geometry could be found in Antique Philosophy and is further represented in culture reflecting the fundamental aspects of human existence. P. Sloterdijk’s spherological concept allows us to explore the dimension of internal spatiality of a person reconstructing the concept of intimacy. Microspherology and macrospherology are becoming modes of human existence, and spherological topology takes place as a space of intimacy solely. The phenomenon of sphere-formation is considered by P. Sloterdijk through the prism of extrapolation of the natural to the artificial. In fact, the need to recreate a comfortable protective space is a way of self-preservation, which is immanently inherent in a person. The process of sphere-formation is a reconstruction of the first spherological defense obtained from pre-personal dyadic experience. Since spherological spaces are constituted by subjects, the philosophical question about man within the framework of spherology is the decentralization of the individual and the recultivation of implicit dyadic connections. The spherological approach allows us to re-evaluate the formation of society history, the development of art and the morphology of human thinking.
