Anatomy of Philosophy: How the Text Works. Collection of Works, Edited by by Yulia Sineokaya. Institute of Philosophy, Russian Academy of Sciences. Moscow, LRC Publishing House, 2016. – 968 pages – Hardcover – ISBN 978-5-9908330-5-0. (in Russian)

 

This illustrated collection of articles represents the result of a successful joint project «Anatomy of Philosophy: How the Text Works» of the Institute of philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Moscow Dostoyevsky Municipal Library. The goal of this project is bringing the academic philosophy into the public space. The lectures were given by researchers of the Institute of Philosophy at an open intellectual venue in the center of Moscow. All the texts are written by participants of the project on the basis of their presentations to everyone who is interested in philosophy. The book main purpose is to explain to public what specialists of the Institute of philosophy are working on. Open lectures of the philosophers at the city library gave a clear answer to a question: "Why philosophy is necessary for society and what is practical outcome from it?" The success of the project shows that philosophy is necessary not only for the closed circle of intellectuals, but for all people. For the experts of the Institute it is important that their work, knowledge and research experience are appreciated not only by their colleagues, but also by non-professionals. Philosophers are involved not only in search of truth, but they also help people to find out the sense of existence and support them in everyday life. The topics that were presented at the library have been investigated by scientists for many years and became the subject of several professional discussions and disputes. The project became an important event in the life of the Institute of philosophy. It has been launched and functioned thanks to the enthusiasm of researchers on a voluntary basis and was carried out without any grant, material encouragement and rating points. The initiator and head of the project is Yulia Sineokaya. This collection was gathering all generations of researchers of the Institute. The texts are followed by the photo portraits of the philosophers at work and their listeners – the faces of modern philosophical Moscow. This project became a worthy episode in the chronicle of Russian philosophy and a bright illustration of intellectual life in the Russian capital at the beginning of the 21st century.


The joint project of the Institute of Philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Moscow Dostoyevsky Library “Anatomy of Philosophy” brings the academic philosophy into the public space, both in Russia and in other Russian-speaking countries. In January, 2017 the project was awarded the Gold medal of Russian Academy of Sciences for Promoting Science in the nomination "Humanities and Social Sciences". The recently published collection of articles entitled «Anatomy of Philosophy: How the Text Works» (Yulia V. Sineokaya (ed.). Moscow: LRC Publishing House, 2016. – 968 pages) that presents the results of the first year of work, has been chosen as the 2016 best publication project in philosophy by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research. The project director Yulia V. Sineokaya has invited some its participants to share their thoughts about the project. The journal publishes these reflections.



 

Gaius Musonius Rufus. The Fragments. Introduction, translation, and commentary by Alexander A. Stoliarov. Moscow, Institute of Philosophy Press, 2016. – 144 pages – Paperback – ISBN: 978-5-9540-0311-6 (in Russian)

 

This edition presents the first Russian translation of the full corpus (on the base of the Hense's edition) of Musonius Rufus, whose fragmentary texts are largely extracted from Stobaeus and also from a number of minor sources. Gaius Musonius Rufus was a Roman Stoic philosopher of the 1st century AD who, despite being a less-known figure, for his importance can be compared with Seneca, Hierocles, Epictetus (who was Musonius’ disciple) and Marcus Aurelius. He first engaged in the study of philosophy in Rome during Nero’s reign and, after being exiled in 65, came back to Rome after Galba’s ascent to power; at some time in the 70s he had to go to exile again, to be back only after the death of Vespasian. Like many other representatives of the Later Stoa, Musonius paid little attention to the theoretical side of the Stoic doctrine, concentrating mostly on practical ethics, namely, the so-called paraenetic, or moralistic discourse, a discipline which eventually exerted great influence of European moral philosophy. Musonius advises on how one should behave in a given situation, parting from the positive assumption that a human being is born with a proclivity for virtuous life and a capacity of goodness. The present book follows Musonius’ life and teaching through the events of Roman history and public life; as a result, one gets a more complete understanding of his character and thinking (and also of the reasons why it became influential), as well as of the common background of Roman, in particular Stoic, philosophy of the 1st century. A paradigmatic Roman intellectual, Musonius contributed to shaping that idea of a dignified way of life which dominated European consciousness ever since; his own example gave proof of his adherence to the principles he believed to be true.

No cabinet philosopher, Musonius Rufus was a champion of education, marriage, equality of the sexes, and freedom of the individual. But especially he taught how to live a virtuous life in difficult circumstances. His methods included Socratic discussion, training exercises, and close association with students such as Epictetus and other well-known figures of the time. Above all he was a living example of what he taught. Based on the ancient texts and modern scholarship, this book is the first russian comprehensive treatment of Musonius Rufus, his life, teachings, and methods. It recounts his active life in dramatic times, describes his basic teachings and their application to practical problems of life, and systematically presents all aspects of his approach to philosophy, education and related items.

Kritchewskij, Andrei. The Power of the Nonbeing: A Metaphysics Beyond of Ontology. Moscow, Direckt-Media Publishers, 2015. – 591 pages – Hardcover – ISBN: 978-5-4475-6077-5 (in Russian)

 

The research is devoted to a paradoxical problem: how it is possible to create a doctrine of Absolute beyond of the doctrine of being. The author analyses in the context of a the particular philosophical traditions (from Neoplatonism until the late works of Schelling) the intuition of Absolute as a power, that is dominating over the actually infinite being and over the actually infinite possibility. It is shown that the category of being is fundamentally irrelevant for understanding a metaphysical status of this power. The author examines in this connection the question of metaphysical meaning of the thesis about the non-existence of God. The book is recommended for philosophers, theologians, and everybody who is interested in the key problems of understanding of Absolute.

Lebedev, Andrei V. The Logos of Heraclitus: A Reconstruction of his Thought an d Word. With a New Critical Edition of the Fagments. St.Petersburg: Nauka Publishers, 2014. – 533 pages – Hardcover (in Greek and Russian)


Dr. Lebedev's monograph falls into two parts. Part I contains an outline of life and philosophy of Heraclitus of Ephesus (c. 540 – c. 480 B.C.), as well as a systematic study of his metaphorical language which is crucial for the precise intepretation of the extant fragments. The author arrives at the main conclusion that Heraclitus was not a «presocratic» «physicist», but an ethical, political and theological thinker of reformist stamp while his lost treatise in its aims in many respects anticipates the subject of Plato's «Poiliteia». The new readings and interpretations of the extant fragments demonstrate that the Stoics both in their philosophy of nature and in their ethics borrowed and developed some authentic fundamental ideas of Heraclitus rather that «projected» and read into his texts their own philosophical tenets. Part II of the monograph contains a new critical edition of the Greek text of the extant fragments (actually a new collection with a new reconstruction of the original structure of the lost work) with apparatus criticus and a new Russian translation followed by an extensive commentary to the fragments. The commentary to each fragment consists of two parts as well: the first discusses problems of textual criticisms and authenticity, the second provides a philosophical interpretation. Both in scale and detailed analysis the new commentary is unparalleled in Russian historiography of ancient philosophy and Heraclitean studies.

Philosophy of different countries and periods is given as the most crucial integrated component of civilizational development, spiritual life of humanity. The unity of two elements – history of philosophy as the process of the spirit’s development on the one hand, and history of civilizations as the process of social and cultural development on the other hand, – is clearly underlined in the book. Another particular characteristic of the textbook is demonstration of the unremoved antinomy of the historical and philosophical process. It consists in challenging contradiction between inimitable uniqueness of the products generated by this process, namely between its concretely historical, local, national, personal, and individual forms, and steady transformation of the process into the procedure of different traditions’ interaction, that together are the unity of World philosophy.

Studies in Medieval Philosophy

  • Freedom of the Will as a Problem of European Moral Concsiousness (Some Essays on History from Homer to Luther). Moscow: Museum Graeco-Latinum, 1999. – Hardcover (in Russian)

Freedom is one of the main intuitions of european culture since antique times. Therefore it is important to develop an understanding of the way freedom became a real problem of philosophical reflection – especially in its specific form, the freedom of the will. The latter in historic retrospective often appeared rather as «philosophical metaphor» than as strict notion. But in spite of this there exists a coherent set of key problems, such as: what is moral action? does imputation of action require moral autonomy? and the like. The book tries to reconstruct the basic types of european moral consciousness and different aspects of evolution of «voluntaristic» terminology.

Two books by Andrei Kritchevsky are the parts of the whole investigation. In the first book (The Image of the Absolute) was shown, that Hegel’s and Schelling’s conceptions of the absolute spirit had definite intuitions of the actual infinity as their foundation. The principal difference between two concepts consists in the fact, that Hegel had discussed an actual infinite being, and Schelling – an actual infinite ability (Können). In the second book (The Absolute Spirit through the Forms of the Trinity) the following themes were considered: (1) the correlation of the dialectics of concept and the metaphysics of freedom of the absolute spirit; (2) a relation of Hegel and Schelling to the tradition of the German philosophical mysticism; (3) a place of the world and a human being in the structure of the absolute.

  • Zum Freiheitsverständnis des Kantischen und nachkantischen Idealismus. Neuere Arbeiten russischer Autoren / Hrsg. von Nelli Motroshilowa. Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp Verlag, 1998.

Die in diesem Band enthaltenen Arbeiten russischer Autoren gehen alle der Frage nach, was Kant und/oder Hegel zu einem Freiheitsverständnis beitragen können, das es in Rußland nach dem Zusammenbruch des sowjetischen Gesellschaftssystems zu entwickeln gilt. In der Varietät ihrer Sichtweisen manifestieren sie, daß diese Frage nicht nur viele Facetten hat und je nach Präferenzen des einen oder anderen Autors mit verschiedenen Kontexten westeuropäischer Philosophie verbunden werden kann, sondern auch je nach Einstellung zur Geschichte Rußlands auf ganz unterschiedliche, ja entgegengesetzte Weise beantwortet sein will.

 

 

Interaction of Russian Thought with the Philosophy of the West

  • Nelly Motroshilova. Thinkers of Russia and Philosophy of the West: V. Solov'ev, N. Berdiaev, S. Frank, L. Shestov [Mysliteli Rossii i Filosofiia Zapada]Moscow: Respublika; Cultural Revolution, 2007. – 477 pages. – Hardcover. – ISBN: 525001898X (in Russian)

Nelly Motroshilova analyzes concepts by Russian philosophers Vladimir Solov'ev, Nikolai Berdiaev, Simon Frank, and Leo Shestov, and compares them with Western philosophical theories. The author concludes that despite many specific views of Russian philosophers, the Russian philosophy of that period developed as an integrated part of world philosophy, and worked in the same philosophical paradigms.

The monograph of Nelly V. Motroshilova is among the first attempts to reflect the role of philosophers in Soviet and Post-Soviet society. The key texts on history of philosophy written by the monograph’s author are connected by the theory of the place of philosophy and philosophers of developing historically society. The core of the theory contains three main principals. The first principal consists in the concept of acting idea; the second one, according to N.V.Motroshilova, is “the personal principal”; finally, the third principal is telling about the difference between three levels of the society’s development, that is to say civilization, epoch, and historical situation. The writer in turn applies this approach also to the present book.

  • Julia Sineokaya. Three Images of Nietzsche in Russian Culture. Moscow: Institute of Philosophy Press, 2008. – 200 pages. – Paperback. – ISBN 978-5-9540-0112-9 (in Russian)

The monograph represents research of reception of Nietzsche’s philosophy in Russia since the end of the 19th century till the current situation.

The Nietzsche’s concept of culture which is based on a dichotomy of Apollo and Dionysus, is considered through a prism of the dichotomy of hierarchy and spontaneity of the culture, which is well-known in the Russian intellectual history. The book explores application of Nietzsche’s ideas to Russian political practice. The author analyzing also texts by Nietzsche devoted to the future of Europe and the attitude among Russian thinkers toward the idea of European unity. Contemporary problems pertaining to the formation of a unified European space are also raised.
