The concept of the state within the course of the information-quantum discourse

Ivanskiy V.P.


The article describes the origins of the state within the frames of the information-quantum discourse, the cognition of which is focused on the interdisciplinary nature of comprehension of «internal» procedural qualities of the state through its substrate being the people (the nation). The state is regarded by the author as an emergent self-organizing system which includes such elements as the pattern (protopattern) and the egregore, these elements being its formation stages. The first stage of the process of the state genesis is marked by protopattern formation on the level of the collective unconscious. Moreover, the appearance of the «self» protopatterns is accompanied by decomposition of the superposition of conditions of the «society» (of the «Self» quasi-pattern) quantum quasi-system and by appearance of one of its conditions being the ethnos which cannot be identified as the state in its proper meaning. It is explained by absence of a single idea and aim to be realized within individuals residing in a definite territory. In other words, the ethnos did not possess the «mental condensate» generated by thoughts and emotions of individuals and gained independent existence - the egregore. Only starting from the moment of the egregore establishment (institutionalization) the process of transformation of the ethnos into the people takes place, and also the final stage of the ethnos establishment as the state begins. The final stage of the state establishment is marked by appearance of the egregore, as well as by transformation of the society into the systems of the «people» and the «nation». Precisely the egregore generates development of its another potential condition - the «people» - out of the non-local superposition of the «Self» quasi-system conditions. As a result of the decoherence process the collective «self» pattern is formed as a reflection of the conscious and unconscious aspects of the state forming people. Furthermore, it should be noted that it is presence of non-linear relations between interacting subjects of law that act as the main feature of genesis and development of the people into the state. It is those relations, according to the author of the article, that reflect the unconscious level of the unity of the people as a union of individuals. Along with fulfillment by the people of its mission - the egregore idea, there originates a new type of the state forming people. The egregore formed by the people earlier, eventually becomes an independent energo-informational entity which establishes space with its own law and order referred to as the nation-state. According to the author of the article, the state starts functioning not in accordance with aspirations of the people as a source of public authority, but in conformity with an autonomous egregore, the intent of which depends on the ideology it contains.

The advocacy feature of the modern notariat

Kucherenko P.A.


In the article, author shows importance of improving all elements of the legal mechanism, in particular notariat. Author puts forward the statement, that the notariat acts as a point of intersection of the private and public law, as a result, has a dualistic nature, which is manifested in the fact, that the notary is both an authorized representative of the state and independent legal advisor. In modern Russia the notariat is non-governmental institution, to which in accordance with Part 1, Article 1 of «Fundamentals of Russian Federation legislation on Notaries» were delegated certain powers of the state to implement one of the most important state functions, namely to protect the rights and legitimate interests of citizens and legal entities. Author examines the idea of G.G. Cheremnyh and I.G. Cheremnyh to divide the functions of notariat in the two groups, depending on from which nature they are derived (public law, private law). This article reveals the existing current approaches to understanding of the function of the human rights of notaries. The author believes that the notariat is directly involved in the creation of a favorable environment for economic activity and civil turnover, for the sustainable development of society. The importance of this function in a modern legal reform is shown in details. In conclusion, the author cites the opinion of B.V. Shagiev, that the notariat should rather be attributed to the human rights organizations, than to law enforcement agencies. The author agrees with this position and believes that the notariat performs its advocacy function on behalf of the state.

Approaches to the definition of «constitutional values» in theory of constitutional law of foreign countries and Russia

Klochko E.I.


The article observes approaches to a problem of defining the notion of «constitutional values», that exist in the theory of constitutional law in Russia and foreign countries (Germany, USA). Points out that in German theory of constitutional law there is a concept according to which the Constitution represents an objective hierarchy of values, a document that incorporates the basic value decisions of the founders. And constitutional values themselves are regarded as the ideological basis of the Constitution. Basic concept of fundamental values of the American theory of constitutional and legal thought also discloses. The supporters of this theory claim that constitutional provisions are bound with morality and argue that the Constitution is a certain system of moral values. It indicates the presence of critics of this concept in American literature in view of the fact that the search for moral reasons in the provisions of the Constitution entails giving these standards an abstract nature, which allows law enforcers to see in them not an objective but a subjective sense. Highlights the point of view of Russian experts on the concept of constitutional values. In particular, the author supports the point of view of N.S. Bondar’, who proposes to consider constitutional values as an «extralegal category «, which is both a normative category and a category of morality. It also regards an issue of relationship between the categories of «constitutional values», «constitutional provisions» and «constitutional principles». It argues that constitutional provisions and constitutional principles are the legal form of expression of constitutional values. The latter represent certain ideas, guidelines, ideals that have positive significance for the entire nation and are the foundation, the basis of social and state development.
