Abstract: The article considers the concept of reason in the essay “Piesek przydrożny” (1998) written by the Nobel Prize winner Cieslaw Milosz from the postructuralist perspective of deanthropologisation and decentration of the subject. The strategy of the text analysis used is deconstruction. Milosz speaks about the destruction of the ego cogito in anthropology. He accepts the Nietschean idea of the metaphoricity of the truth, of the impossibility to perceive the truth by reason and individually. Yet he does not accept nihilism attributing it to the sphere of mass culture. The author of the article comes to the following conclusion: Milosz acknowledges that the man of the 20th century is dependent on Cartesian cogito. The thinker himself, however, in “Piesek przydrożny” is closer to St. Augustine than to Descartes
