Special theme of the fourth issue: «Contemporary Problems of Philosophy of Education».

We invite you to submit scientific articles for this issue covering current trends in education in the world, as well as specific problems of approaches to pedagogy that are gaining popularity, forms of assessment, the philosophical context of the educational process, the relationship between teachers and students, and the possibility of forming a personality in contemporary conditions.

Interest in the problems of philosophy of education is growing every day because of factors such as globalization, the crisis of the hierarchical model of teacher-student, and the development of the concept of providing education as a service. In the context of educational reform, there is a process of dehumanization, which is the cause of an anthropological crisis with changing goals for the educational process. The form in pedagogy becomes primary in relation to the content – the inner world of the individual. However, this raises philosophical issues about subjectivity and the capacity to assess content rationally and objectively. This in turn has philosophical implications for the curriculum, freedom of speech, and educational censorship, including self-censorship, and indoctrination. Another important feature of the current state of education is digitalization and the complete or partial replacement of interpersonal communication with online learning. The differing contexts of formal and non-formal education and informal learning should also be considered.

Submission of papers of no more than 40, 000 characters (inclusive of all matter) to be peer-reviewed should be sent by August 15, 2021, with the special issue published in October 2021. 

Prof. W. John Morgan (Cardiff University; Nottingham University) has agreed to be guest editor of this special issue.


Special theme of the first issue in 2022: «Philosophy of Russian Abroad»

This issue will be dedicated to the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the expulsion of the Russian intellectuals from Soviet Russia in 1922–1923.These dramatic events were described by S.S. Khoruzhyi with the image of the so-called “Philosophy Steamship” (as in most cases it were the steamships — “Oberbürgermeister Haken” and “Preussen” that transported intellectuals who had been expelled from the country). This dramatic event led to the formation of the exclusive culture of the Russian Abroad, continuing the tradition of the Russian religious philosophy and formed a number of the intellectual centers of Russian immigrants, such as St Sergius Orthodox Theological Institute in Paris or RNU (Ruská národní univerzita) in Prague.

The issue is supposed to have several thematic sections:

  • history of the Russian Abroad’ philosophy, focuing on the biographies and philosophical heritage of such authors as N. A. Berdyaev, S. N. Bulgakov, I. A. Ilyin, E. D. Kuskova, I. I. Lapshin, N. O. Lossky, L. P. Karsavin, P. Sorokin, F. A. Stepun, S. E. Trubetskoy, S. L. Frank, and others.
  • reception of the heritage of the Russian Abroad in the post-Soviet period. Can we say today that the legacy of Russian intellectuals was returned” completely? How it has been adopted in the historical homeland? Were the ideas of the Russian spiritual revival, which had been proposed by these authors, in demand during the difficult period of perestroika — and are they in demand today, in the context of searcing for one's own national and cultural identity in the global world?

Submission of papers of no more than 40, 000 characters (inclusive of all matter) to be peer-reviewed should be sent by November 15, 2021, with the special issue published in January–February 2022.

Prof. D. Steila (Turin University), one of the leading specialists in the history of Russian philosophy, has agreed to be the guest editor of this special issue.
