Abstract

It is not necessary to mix the concept Perfect Man with improvement of the person. The idea of the Perfect Man, for example, in Taoist, Iranian, hesychast traditions is especially metaanthropological. The Perfect Man is a peculiar mediator, an isthmus (barzakh) between God and the universe. For this reason, any judgment of the place and the fate of a person on the way to God and in God is inevitably projected on regularity of world order, the rule of the hostel of God and Perfect Person in Creation, a wreath and which “deputy” is the Person in all the godlikeness and, respectively, perfection.
