Separation of such values of technocracy as progress, possession, objectivity, substitutability, manageability, all-solvability, pragmatism (quality-price ratio) and irresponsibility allows to formalize this ethics and makes it accessible for philosophic analysis and publicity.

Panaiotidi E.G.


The core assumptions of the cognitivist view about artistic truth are the claims that (1) art is capable of the unique kinds of knowledge and truth and (2) that this capacity determines its supreme value. However the advocates of different versions of aesthetic cognitivism fail to justify these claims. In this paper it is suggested that to arrive at a viable conception of the artistic truth the strong theses of the uniqueness of artistic knowledge and truth and the centrality of cognitive dimension in the definition of artistic value should be abandoned.
