The history of studying the cognitive structure of our consciousness and its minimal mental unit dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and is associated with the name of the Russian Scientist S.А. Askoldov, the scientific legacy of whom was not actually forgotten during the Soviet period. Appealing to the methods of representation of knowledge about the world has aroused interest in the concept category. The basics which reflect primary human values are metaconcept. The present paper proves that the basis of the structure of the meta concept is an archetype.
