Background. The article is devoted to the study of the problem of modern language studies. This exploration is carried out mainly by means of the study of concepts. In recent times there is accumulated plenty of experience in the description of concepts of Russian linguistic worldimage and of other languages alike, there were studies on the comparative aspect of the linguistic worldimages, but to talk about the exhaustive coverage of this issue is still too early. Address to the concept of «father», «male nature» is preconditioned by the significance of these concepts in the German culturological worldimage. The aim of our investigation is to study and describe the concepts «father» and «male nature» in German culturogical worldimage.
Materials and methods. As data for study was used the novel «House without Guardians» by the German writer Heinrich Böll. The analysis of lexical co-occurof the concept and the symbolic meaning as well.
Results. The author of this article identifies cognitive criterions which determine the content of the concepts «father» and « male nature» in the culturological Germans’ worldview.
Conclusions. The main cognitive criterions of the concepts «father» and « male nature » in Heinrich Böll’s novel are the «regularity», «schedule», «order». The periphery of the concept includes such notions as the «thrift», «significant other». The father’s authority as the main member of family is quite evident in the novel. The notion «order» is connected with «male nature» in the family. Women are not able to install and «carry» order.
