The news that the Institute of Philosophy of the Russian Academy of Science is under threaten of being expelled from its historical building in Volkhonka Street № 14 in Central Moscow have produced to us a deeply unsatisfaction. We know that the Institute of Philosophy working in this building from 80 years and it became a essential part of Institute's identity. This important academical institution is recognize in Russia and in world through valuable philosophical recherches, through its meaningful contributions to development of Russian and universal culture.
In this difficult moments, we express with all conviction our support to the Institute of Philosophy and to our colleagues from Moscow and we have trust that the Russian authorities will didn't permit to destruction such important cultural establishment. Because it is well-know the philosophy didn't bring immediately any profit to anyone but nobody couldn't live without philosophy.
