The paper deals with the philosophical problems of human heart ant its moral dimension in philosophy. It focuses on the philosophy of the Russian philosopher B. P. Vysheslavtsev, called also "a philosopher od heart." His conception of heart and its role in the life of humans is seen as the source of the human spiritual life as a whole. "The heart is not only a physiological organ, but also an ontological origin beyond all rationality, in which the real autonomy of a person lies."
