Abstract
The article deals with the problem of the unity of the conscious subject in the sphere of socio-cultural experience. The existential nature of human existence is analyzed as the basis of the unity of the conscious subject. There is the revealing of the ontological essence of personal centeredness of consciousness, which not only ensures the transcendental unity of mental acts, but also sets a certain structure of the mental representation space, identifies individual elements of mental experience. These elements interact with each other and determine through this interaction the main forms of the inner life of the perceiving and thinking subject. The author shows that the personal Self as a unity of self-consciousness does not contain any phenomenal content, but it is a necessary condition for the structured mental experience after the totality of unconscious experiences existing in the mode of possible being. This is reduced to the mental experience existing in the mode of actual being, unlike the personal Ego, which has a phenomenal content of both unconscious and conscious nature. There is a traced difference between the assimilated ego and the introjected one. It is proved that in the ontological field, the personal Self is not a fiction, or an illusion, or a way of describing the totality of changing psychic phenomena, but an integral ontological structure of the entire mental being.
