The Department of Analytical Anthropology (former “Laboratory for Post-classic Studies in Philosophy: Literature, Politics and Art", 1987-1997) was established in Perestroika times as a center of innovative studies in philosophy and humanities for collaborative work with scholars from European and American universities. It gathered together Valery Podoroga and Mikhail Ryklin, who are now internationally known intellectuals. In seminar discussions organized by Department took part Jacques Derrida, Jean-Luc Nancy, Fredric Jameson, Susan Buck-Morss, Antonio Negri, Giorgio Agamben. From the very beginning research projects of the Department integrated a broad spectrum of contemporary thought in an original manner, and included a large space mapped out by French theory, philosophical anthropology, Marxism and critical theory, psychoanalysis and media studies. The materials from Russian and Soviet intellectual and cultural history also play an important part in this collective research.
