The author pays attention to the “political conception of the person” of one of the leading political and moral philosophers of the 20th century, John Rawls (1921– 2002), whose twentieth death anniversary we are remembering this year. The article is conceived as an attempt of a philosophical–anthropological reading of the understanding of the person within the framework of Rawls’s political philosophy, which will avoid any metaphysical foundation. The main goal here is to reflect on the importance of the human person as a subject within the framework of John Rawls’s political philosophy. The aim of the paper is to encourage further research into his understanding of the human person, which has a very specific philosophical and research–worthy meaning, especially in the context of the contemporary crisis of liberalism and democracy which is a result of the contemporary attitude towards the human person in general.
