The article presented here is the first section of a book currently being written: Scenery of a Fault – an Attempt at Phenomenological Analysis. The author distinguishes between a cognitive act and its correlate: a sense of fault – and the fault itself, which is not identical with the harm done to somebody. The emotionally-conscious experience of acquiring the sense of fault is being phenomenologically inquired. As a result, a coincidence appears between how Nicolai Hartman describes a way, the reality is given to us (in this particular case: the reality of fault), and the arising of a conscious experience of fault: the experience of perpetration, of irreversibility of a deed, of being blamed.
