Commentators of Karol Wojtyla's philosophical thought usually offer three types of its interpretation. Some of them claim that Wojtyla's philosophy belongs to the category of classical philosophy of being. Other scholars believe that it is a variety of realistic phenomenology. Most frequently, Wojtyla's philosophical thought is interpreted as synthesis of the philosophies of being and consciousness. Yet, there are serious reasons to believe that Wojtyla's thought is essentially philosophy of human existence drama, having different qualities from the philosophy created by Józef Tishner. The paper contributed to the development of the latter interpretation.What is the main structure and characteristics of this philosophy? Primarily, it is a realistic phenomenology. Its specific character is determined by the fact that it does not exclude hermeneutics and implies a definite ontology. While describing, interpreting and explaining the intra-personal drama, the drama between humans as well between God and human being, Karol Wojtyla applies the notions of the philosophy of being, consciousness philosophy, axiological ethics and community personalism. Although, Karol Wojtyla's philosophical creativity is essentially far from poetic language, yet it relies profoundly on the Evangelical metaphor of wheat grain: "I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds" (John 12:24)
