METAPHYSICS IN THE HISTORICAL PROCESS: IN RELIGION, PHILOSOPHY, SCIENCE

METAPHYSICS OF METHODOLOGICAL CREATIVES OF THE MIDDLE AGES
Iakovlev V.A.
Abstract
The work reveals the problem of the existence of God as determining all directions of thought of medieval philosophers. However, the proposed methodological creatives are relatively autonomous and self-valued. They preserved the spirit of critical rationalism, generated by the philosophy of Antiquity. These creatives turned out to be in demand both in philosophy and in the science of modern times.

FOUNDATIONS OF CLASSICAL PHYSICS AND CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY
Katasonov V.N.
Abstract
The article discusses the twists and turns of the history of formulation of the inertia principle of classical mechanics and their dependence on the theological concepts of their time. The points of view on the movement and inertia of Aristotle, the authors of late scholasticism, Galileo, Descartes and Newton are subject to discussion. The fundamental concepts of classical mechanics are also compared with the tradition of Protestant theology.

THE PROBLEM OF PROOF IN EMPIRICAL AND THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE
Shustova O.B., Sidorov G.N.
Abstract
The article presents arguments about the problem of proof in science. This problem was raised in antiquity at the time of Plato and Aristotle. At present, science uses a wide range of evidence, but not all of them meet the requirements of adequacy and consistency. Proof is often associated with belief and belief in the truth of a proposition. Therefore, the term “proof” is not defined unambiguously and a pluralistic approach is preferable to it, including not only scientific, but also metaphysical worldview. The article continues the author's analysis of the concept of information as the content of the laws of the external world, which is revealed to people after they adapt their bodily and “mental” sense organs to it. It is substantiated that not a single single worldview can become a rationale for explaining the whole picture of the material Universe and, moreover, the metaphysical being.

METAPHYSICAL ASPECTS IN THE HUMANITIES

THE IDEA OF ALL-UNITY IN RELIGIOUS-ARTISTIC, MYSTICAL-AESTHETIC AND THEOLOGICAL THOUGHT OF THE 20th-21st CENTURIES
Postovalova V.I.
Abstract
The article discusses some trends in Russian humanitarian thought of the 20th-21st centuries, devoted to the study of reality in its semiological aspect under the sign of the ideas of church, mystery and global All-Unity, which continues to be a fruitful heuristic principle in the formation of the mentality of modern culture.

ENERGY-RELATED INTERACTION OF THE THING AND THE NAME IN THE PHILOSOPHY OF A.F. LOSEV
Kryuchkov T.O.
Abstract
The article is devoted to disclosing of relations of “name” and energy” categories in A.F. Losev’s philosophy. The problem of sameness of a name and the thing designated by it was touched upon in theological disputes of the beginning of the 20th century about the Orthodox tradition of “onomatodoxy” study which was adhered to by quite a large part of Hesychast monks in Russian Athos monasteries who confessed that the God Himself is present in a prayfully pronounced God’s name. A.F. Losev, being a representative of the junior generation of onomatodoxes, considered philosophic aspects of onomatodoxy. The essence of the onomatodoxy philosophic sense is revelation, in philosophic categories, of indivisibility of a thing from its name which is inevitable for the human thought. Such a conceptual structure is possible when a name is regarded as energy of the named thing, i.e. emanation of the thing wherein it is perceived by the people around. Energy is a way of presence of a thing outside its contours which are shaped by the form and matter generating the thing. The thing’s name and the name itself create in itself a uniform fact of the thing. Speaking about possibility of the presence of the thing outside itself will be allowed by equation of the thing itself and images wherein the thing is accessible for perceiving thereof by the surrounding world (visual, audial, tactile, olfactory). A name as the energy delivers a thing in outside as a personality, disclosing not the essence of aspect but its hypostasis. The name, being identic to the thing in sense, expresses this sense outside in a matter other in relation to the thing.

HUMAN MODEL IN THE CONTEXT OF THE RELATIONAL PARADIGM OF THEORETICAL PHYSICS
Egorov D.G.
Abstract
The main problems of the concepts of consciousness: explanation of the mechanism of the psyche; substantiation of free will; tabula rasa problem; the nature of the principles of scientific theories and morality - do not have a satisfactory solution within the framework of materialistic concepts. There are reasons to believe that consciousness goes beyond space-time, which leads to the idea of substantiating the nature of consciousness from the standpoint of the relational paradigm of theoretical physics.

METAPHYSICAL ASPECTS IN THE HUMANITIES

METAPHYSICS OF SPEECH COMMUNICATION
Tarasov E.F.
Abstract
The article deals with the construction of a methodology for the theoretical analysis of speech communication (SC). The article analyzes theoretical reductions of the speech communication model, which are considered an obstacle to an adequate study of SC. The program of a non-reductionist approach to the analysis of SC includes the requirement 1. to consider speech as speech actions aimed at organizing both SC and joint activities (JA); 2. to distinguish images of consciousness from their verbal models; 3. to see the semantic perception of speech as the construction of the speech message content by the recipient from his/her knowledge; 4. to allow the existence of speech only in the processes of its production and reception, assuming that outside these processes, the speech content exists as a certain set of images of communicants’ consciousness; 5. to introduce both single and multiple communicants in to the SC objectarea.

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE PERSONALITY AS AN OBJECT OF METALINGUISTICS
Vladimirova T.E.
Abstract
This article is devoted to the consideration of the Russian linguistic personality from the metalinguistic positions. The developed approach made it possible to reveal the essential (ontological) features of the Russian linguistic personality, which are manifested in its way of being, attitude towards the world and others. A comparative analysis of the Russian and Greek linguistic personalities through the prism of the conceptual and paremic worldviews led to the conclusion that the use of cultural transfer is promising to achieve mutual understanding between representatives of different linguistic cultures.

MONODISCIPLINARITY IN HUMAN SCIENCES IS A DEAD-END PATH OF SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENT
Maslova V.A., Pivovar E.S.
Abstract
The article shows that monodisciplinarity in linguistics and other human sciences is a dead-end path of development. To address today’s challenges, linguistics must become integrative, multidisciplinary, when language research includes the use of data from various branches of science: from philosophy, culturology, poetics to neuroscience, physics and religious knowledge.

PHENOMENOLOGY OF LACUNARITY IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES
Gabdreeva N.V., Marsheva T.V., Kalinina G.S.
Abstract
The paper deals with the problem of lacunarity, that is, the allomorphism of languages of different structures on heterogeneous material: translations of different times, lexicographic sources and opinion poll data of native speakers of the same language who study Russian, ways of eliminating lacunae at various historical stages in the development of the lexical system of different languages and the mismatch of signs of nomination, and also describes vector lacunarity in the speech etiquette of the Russian language from the point of view of translation into Arabic. The main approaches to the study of the phenomenon of lacunarity in modern linguistics are considered. A typology of lacunarity is proposed based on the material of languages with different structures.

A NEW SYSTEM OF KNOWLEDGE IN THE SCIENCE AND PHILOSOPHY OF COSMISM
Sokolov V.G.
Abstract
The work is devoted to important aspects of the cardinal phenomenon of scientific and philosophical thought, with other words cosmism, or cosmic thinking, which began to form in the late 19th - early 20th centuries and continues to develop today. The work reveals the actual problem of understanding two main ways of knowledge - empirical scientific and metascientific (the comprehension of objects and phenomena by a person through his inner, spiritual, space), the synthesis of which is presented in the works of Russian scientists and cosmist philosophers. This synthesis is a new system of knowledge, which is the subject of research and allows us to understand a phenomenon or process in the most complete and deep way. This understanding is particularly relevant, because science faces a number of major problems that cannot be explained in terms of traditional, outdated approaches.

THREE GLOBES OF oἰκουμένη
Neklessa A.I.
Abstract
The article is based on the reports at seminars at the Center for Civilizational and Regional Studies of the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The subject of the article is an analysis of the main aspects and trends of the evolution of history: routes and trends of universal transit as an interdisciplinary area of scientific research and as one of the "big challenges" for civilization. It examines the stepped path of history - three generations of the global organization: progress from the imperial colonization of the planet through decolonization and the unification of nations to a society of post-colonial nomadicity with an emphasis on personal sovereignty . The actuality of the problem is determined by the need to rethink the socio-cultural heritage of civilization, its current status and opening prospects. Postcoloniality, relying on creativity, experimenting with a variety of ways of self-organization and self-realization, finds itself in a symbiotic union with Postmodernity.

CONFLICT AND ITS OVERCOMING
Ponkcinski M.
Abstract
The article is devoted to various aspects of the analysis of the conflict and ways of dialogue on its resolution in the conditions of mass availability of information. The author considers it possible to assess the situation that has arisen as a “new Middle Ages”, which is caused by an overabundance of information, and not its lack, and raises the question of a new type of conflict, different from the former “ideological” or “philosophical”. The focus is on such problems as: the search for grounds in the field of theoretical law that could connect the parties to the “anthropological” conflict, belonging to different geographical and cultural spaces; identification of spatial and temporal coordinates of the limits of the influence of cultures and civilizations, regardless of political and economic relations. The importance of the contextual discussion between the parties of the anthropological or civilizational dispute about the place of a person on the axis of the opposition of the “whole” and “many parts”, taking into account the influence of the geopolitics of emotion, is emphasized.
