UNITY OF FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS AND METAPHYSICS
PHYSICS AND PHILOSOPHICAL ONTOLOGY: FORMS OF INTERNAL UNITY
Zharov S.N.
Abstract
It is shown that physics and philosophical ontology in the bases are involved in the same general being. However these sources are unevident for the physics, they are covered by construction of theoretical schemes. Ways of ontological interpretation of physics and the problems connected with them are analyzed.

THE INEVITABILITY OF THE UNITY OF FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS AND METAPHYSICS AT THE TRANSITIONAL STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT OF PHYSICS
Vladimirov Y.S.
Abstract
The article shows that at the present time in physics the conditions are ripe for a decisive revision of the prevailing ideas about physical reality. To solve this problem, metaphysical principles must be considered. Their manifestations in modern physics are shown in the presence of three paradigms. It has been demonstrated that this is most fully implemented within the framework of the relational paradigm, which has long been in the shadows. The results already obtained within its framework are shown and it is noted that the development of this direction most closely corresponds to materialist philosophy.

PHYSICS NEEDS PHILOSOPHY. PHILOSOPHY NEEDS PHYSICS
Rovelli C., Rybakova I.A.
Abstract
Contrary to claims about the irrelevance of philosophy for science, I argue that philosophy has had, and still has, far more influence on physics than is commonly assumed. I maintain that the current anti-philosophical ideology has had damaging effects on the fertility of science. I also suggest that recent important empirical results, such as the detection of the Higgs particle and gravitational waves, and the failure to detect supersymmetry where many expected to find it, question the validity of certain philosophical assumptions common among theoretical physicists, inviting us to engage in a clearer philosophical reflection on scientific method.

METAPHYSICS AND THEORETICAL PHYSICS
TWO TRADITIONS OF THE ACTUAL INFINITY INTERPRETATION
Katasonov V.N.
Abstract
The article considers two traditions in the interpretation of the actual infinity. One is associated with the name of Nicholas of Cusa, the other with the name of Rene Descartes. It is shown how Nicholas of Cusa within the framework of his idea of the coincidentia oppositorum overcomes the traditional Aristotelian norms of philosophizing, while Descartes puts the finitist ideology at the foundation of both his theology and the theory of knowledge.

ONTOLOGY OF LOOPED QUANTUM GRAVITY. HINGES
Erekaev V.D.
Abstract
Some ontological aspects of the theory of loop quantum gravity are considered. First of all, its possible nature of one of the fundamental objects of theory - the quantum loop - is discussed. In particular, the possible material, geometric and instrumentalist interpretations of this object are briefly considered.

THE RELATIONAL APPROACH TO THE MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF MEANING OF INFORMATION
Krugly A.L.
Abstract
A mathematical model of the meaning of the signal is proposed. The meaning is not the signal itself, but its effect on the recipient. Under the action of the signal, the state of the receiver changes, which is the meaning of the signal. The most general mathematical model is the description of the recipient’s state with the help of some mathematical object, and the meaning is modeled by the action of some operator on this object. Various concrete formalisms are considered: abstract automata, matrix representation, algorithms, Markov chains, parameter spaces. The article deals with finite, countable and continuous meanings, reversible and irreversible meanings, ambiguous meanings, decomposition into elementary meanings.

METAPHYSICS AND INTERDISCIPLINARY MODELS
Balakshin O.B.
Abstract
Metaphysical numerical methods of self-organization of natural systems of Nature, their interdisciplinary connections and models are investigated. They are confirmed by a number of examples and facts, predict informational beginnings and the sequence of formation of material systems of Nature. The facts relate to the chemical elements of the Universe, plants and living systems in health and disease. Their structural periods of self-organization coincide or have common roots. Systems have a “end-to-end” similarity of everything with everything on the basis of the principle of self-similarity and unlimited two-way connection of structural parameters. It is shown that the Abelian Group, the basis of self-organization of systems, allows you to systematize models based on the unity of their origins. The concept of natural self-organization of systems predicts the chemical elements of the Universe and the existence (or appearance) of other civilizations in the world under similar external conditions.

ON THE EVOLUTION OF THE UNDERSTANDING OF METAPHYSICS IN THE HISTORY OF CULTURE
Knyazev V.N.
Abstract
The article examines the evolution of the concept of “metaphysics” in the history of culture. Metaphysics as the “first philosophy” of Aristotle has gone through a historically variable path as a consequence of the pluralistic nature of the very nature of philosophical knowledge. Solidarizing in the main thing - metaphysics is an understanding of the fundamental, fundamental principles of being - each independently thinking philosopher takes as a basis as principles different understandings of substances and its attributes. Questions of the relationship between the concepts of “metaphysics” and “ontology” in various historical and philosophical discourses are discussed. Based on this, metaphysical concepts in specific philosophical teachings and doctrines are quite variable in the history of culture, up to the positivist desire to expel metaphysics from science. The modern understanding of metaphysics in collaboration with the philosophy of science makes it possible to reveal the dialectical connection between metaphysics and science and, in particular, metaphysics and fundamental physics.

THE CONCEPT OF METAHISTORY IN THE WORKS OF L.V. SHAPOSHNIKOVA
Sokolova B.Y.
Abstract
The article analyzes the conceptual approach of the modern philosopher and historian L.V. Shaposhnikova to the phenomenon of metahistory, interpreted as a spiritual and creative part of the historical process, as a result of the creation of cosmic evolution. Features of metahistory, its origins are shown; the importance of synthesis of historical and metahistorical processes is noted. The main ideas of the messenger ship conceptas an integral part of the metahistory concept are identified and considered; some examples of metahistorical activity of messengers of cosmic evolution are considered, the emphasis is placed on its heroic character, its prophetic character, and its influence on the future of the people among whom this activity takes place.

SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION IN THE COORDINATES OF PHILOSOPHY
Iakovlev V.A.
Abstract
The inseparable connection and creative interaction between science and philosophy in the course of their historical development is substantiated. Seven binary-additional metaphysical programs of Antiquity, which defined the main areas of scientific and educational activity in the future, stand out.
