The realisation of gap between existing and proper, and therefore, of deficit of one’s substantiality and fullness, that is identity, have caused the phenomenon which Hegel signified as “unhappy consciousness”. In the context of opposition of existing and proper and with the help of key points of Noospherology, the idea about sharp necessity of culture-forming ideal image actualization of a person, Homo Responsabilis, is grounded through possible implementation of homo noosphericus project. The deep nostalgia of an individual for integrity and fullness of one’s own existence caused the evolution of idealized Homo Responsabilis images in European culture: “Homo Sanctus” of Middle Ages, “Homo Humanitatis” of Renaissance, “Homo Sapiens” of the Rational Era, “Homo Machina” of Enlightenment , “Homo Economicus” of Modern Times and so on. Essentially, up to the middle of the 20th century the ideal image of Homo Responsabilis had actual projection not only to present but mainly to future that generated and stimulated the responsibility of a human for one’s present and future. A contemporary person finds oneself in other situation. A separate individual drops behind “the speed” of humankind development in the sense of intellectuality and civilization. In the condition of accelerating multiple increase of information a person is obliged to glide on the surface of signs without having even time to correlate them with corresponding meanings and even more to deepen into their sense. Sad as it may seem to admit the horizons of intellectual and spiritual wild-growing for a human are becoming more distant. The project Homo Noosphericus, the actualization of Homo Responsabilis image, is justified by the analysis of such key points of noosphere studies as “cosmism”, “biosphere”, “noosphere”, “semiosphere”, “gaia conception” and “anthropic principle”. Such an analysis allows to uncover and to frame an important meta-anthropological intention. For example, if strong version of anthropic principle is admitted as genuine and modality of responsibility concerning universe is true it will mean that modality of responsibility concerning individual, Homo Responsabilis, will be also veritable.
