The book presents the results of the RGNF research project No 11-03-00599а «The problem of identity in modern culture», 2011-2013, (supervisor - Prof. P.S. Gurevich).

 

The monograph shows how under the conditions of globalisation there goes the process of the loss of self-identity of different cultures and the need of a particular country, culture or individual to reveal the essential core, to answer the question «who am I?» or «who are we?» gets sharper. In this context, identity is regarded as a social and anthropological phenomenon.

New conceptions and approaches to the problem of identity are analyzed and viewed at a distance (for example, conception of trans-modernity, situational identity, etc.). A new transcultural, trans-value, transepistemological model is born, requiring enlightenment in scientific literature. The authors discuss new tendencies of multiple identity, which permit to offer an integral programme of Russian evaluation of complex processes of national and cultural self-identity.

ISBN 978-5-9540-0212-6.

 

The monograph analyzes disputable problems related to philosophical comprehension of man. In Russian philosophy there are different approaches to the problem of man. Many different interpretations related to analysis of sciences of man have resulted in essential loss of the subject-matter of philosophical anthropology. The apophatic project of philosophical anthropology (misanthropology) has also developed. Serious delimitations occurred in assessment of the methodology of philosophical anthropology. The authors consider current versions of reductionism and relativism. Special attention is paid to interpretation of E. Fromm’s formulation that man is hardly most eccentric creation of the universe.

Gurevich, P.S. Estetika [Esthetics]: textbook / P.S.Gurevich. – M.: KNORUS, 2011.  – 456 p. ISBN 978-5-406-00349-7.


The textbook gives a brief review of the history of esthetics, exposes the esthetic theory, main ideas and problems of classical esthetics expressed in its basic categories; attempts at classifying esthetic concepts, highlighting novel esthetic conceptions presented by post-modernism and integral esthetics. In the course of historic development, esthetics developed many categories. They were born at different times and in different contexts, therefore there appeared a problem of certain classification of these concepts, their internal relatedness, conceptual coherence. The textbook begins with the categories that make the framework of esthetics as a discipline. Then the author, following the idea of integrality (wholeness) of art, groups the material (and various concepts, respectively) around the historically formed ideas that art might be expressed in an author, in a work, and in a spectator (reader). These three major points provide a basis for the main categories of modern esthetics.

For university students.
