Using the methods of literary analysis, the author tries to trace the evolution of the hero of the novel by G. Belger in the aspect of the transcultural approach. The central object of the study was the “House” archetype. The author comes to the conclusion that the elements of different levels associated with this archetype - from ontological categories (“here-being”, “there-being”) to symbols allow explicating Belger’s idea of Allness, which serves as an alternative to Homelessness and Findability.
