Publication language: Slovak

The paper tries to find a ground, on which Sartre’s and Levinas’ philosophies could be meaningfully compared. The author sees it in the span between the I and the Other. In contrast to Levinas’ philosophy, where the Other is predominant, in Sartre’ philosophy the priority is with the I . The author looks for how to shift the contrary pole in each of these philosophies: how to stress the roles of the Other in Sartre and the I in Levinas. Thus he thinks to have reached a considerably balanced relationships between the I and the Other in both authors.
