This article is a comprehensive study of the philosophical significance of the concept
of loneliness in a modern context. The author analyzes both classical and modern philosophical
theories of loneliness, exploring the views of such thinkers as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger
and Sartre. The focus is on how these philosophers interpreted loneliness and its significance
for human existence.
In the methodological part of the article, the author approaches the study of loneliness using
an interdisciplinary approach, including the analysis of philosophical texts, sociological and
anthropological studies, as well as phenomenological and cross-cultural analysis. Qualitative
research methods are used, including interviews and surveys to study personal experiences of
loneliness and cross-cultural comparison to identify universal and culturally specific aspects
of the phenomenon of loneliness. This allows a deeper understanding of loneliness as a complex
and multifaceted phenomenon that affects various aspects of human life.
The article also includes an analysis of the impact of social changes caused by globalization
and digitalization on the experience of loneliness. The author conducts a phenomenological
analysis, exploring personal experiences of loneliness through interviews and surveys, and
cross-cultural analysis to identify universal and culturally specific aspects of loneliness.
Based on the data obtained, the author offers a number of practical recommendations
for educational, social and political institutions aimed at integrating the philosophical
understanding of loneliness into public discussions and politics. This study provides a new
perspective on loneliness, expanding traditional psychological and sociological approaches and
offering new perspectives for philosophical analysis and public dialogue.
