The main ideas of Eugen Fink's book Play as Symbol of the World and Other Writings are discussed in the review and the most significant thoughts of the German philosopher on the problems of ontology of play are highlighted. O. Fink has managed to give a new solution to the ontological problems of play, as one of the basic phenomena of human existence, to uncover its previously unknown aspects and to show its dual nature and worldliness. In general, O. Fink's analysis of play shows the productivity of the phenomenological investigations in new areas of research.
