The paper begins with an understanding of modernity in terms of an anthropological turn that characterizes Western culture from the seventeenth century. The figures of Descartes and Hobbes indicate, respectively, the discovery of subjectivity and the invention of the individual. Then reflects on the problem of God in philosophical discourse: the attitude of faith is thematized in the understanding of man as image of God and the world as rational structure teleologically ordered toward God. Finally, the paper proposes the understanding of religious experience and of human contingency in terms of an experience of meaning, in which the human being can open himself to the attitude of radical faith as recognition of what gives meaning to the existence of each
