The paper is a critique of modern mass and atomized society,in which the individual is loosing himself/herself. To resolve this problem of the self-loss it is necessary to create a moral society on the grounds of basic moral values. One of these values is also the personal responsibility. The problem of responsibility is analyzed on the background of the philosophy of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Jean-Paul Sartre, Emmanuel Mounier and Emmanuel Lévinas.
