Purpose. The purpose of the study is to show the connection between romanticism and anthropological doctrine that goes back to Hegelianism and Kantianism, and at the same time - with the concepts of the future, structuralism and postmodernism. Theoretical basis. The man is a central figure of the Romantic literary, therefore it makes sense to single out romantic human anthropological doctrine and the image of man associated with a specific historical and cultural era called the “epoch of romanticism"; to show that many romantic philosophical positions remained relevant to the basic foundations of contemporary anthropological research and coincide with it in analytical and critical thinking about a man, a person, his historical and evolutionary fate. Originality. The antic and medieval ideas about man and the progressive evolution were reworked in the context of the scientific data of the romantic era in connection and opposition to antic ideas. The romantic worldview determined the specifics of anthropological discourse, both logical and illogical, remaining symbols and attaching, as for example, a real historical anecdote, a popular history, a philosophical thought, a myth, a famous literary episode and the arts. multiplied by creative inspiration and imagination. This tendency determined the fragmentation of thinking and the scientific image of man as a dual being, nevertheless, presented and described in all the variety of relations with the world and with himself, that allows us to call this area of thought "the romantic human science." Conclusions. Structural analysis of numerous texts of the romantic era allows us to draw the following conclusion: with the help of mythopoetic and lyrical-philosophical images, romantics introduced the reader to any wisdom, to philosophical understanding of their human essence, introduced him to past and modern teachings, in a romantic way processed antique, medieval and enlightening views, in which an important place was given to reflections on the place of man in nature, society, and history. Correlating the well-known statements about a person as a descendant of the “old Adam”, “person”, “personality”, “soul”, with the modern idea of historical and social development, about the evolution of the consciousness of a person who revealed himself as an individual in modern times, with scientific and aesthetic views, the writers of the first half of the XIX century gave romantic thought anthropological meaning and, in fact, laid the foundations of historical, social, psychological, cultural and psychoanalytic anthropology.
