Violance and Non-violance in Policy

Nizhnikov S.A.


In the theses logically distinguished three variants of a correlation between violence and non-violence in policy: specially Machiavelli (only the virtue political aim justifies any means), Machiavellism (the aim justifies any means) and humanistic (the virtue aim can be achieved only by virtue methods). The basic difference of the specified variants of understanding of a correlation between morals and policy is established. It is marked, that Machiavellism cannot be named a policy at all, as such activity is extremely criminal offence. Limited humanism of Machiavelli can be relatively justified only at a stage of formation the national states, but it is inadmissible in the world becoming global. The decision of modern global both international, and internal problems can be reached only on the basis of a humanistic policy which principles are opened in «axial time» by world religions and philosophy, are advanced by I. Kant, F. Dostoevsky, L. Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandy, M.L. King, etc.

Buddhist Philosophy and Neo-hegelianismin Comparative Analytics of Surendranath Dasgupta

Burmistrov S.L.


The main topic of the paper is the views of modern Indian historian of philosophy, Surendranath Dasgupta, on the typological relations between philosophy of ancient India and modern Western idealism, namely Buddhism and neo-Hegelianism of B. Croce. The point of the paper is Dasgupta's interpretation of Buddhism as a reaction on the Vedic and Upanishadic ritualism, and the philosophy of Croce as a reaction on the idealism of Hegel, on the one hand, and on the growth of influence of positivism in the European philosophical culture, on the other. The interpretation of the essence of philosophy as a form of rational activity, being realized in all cultures and in every epoch in the same way and according to the same principles, which makes possible comparative investigation of philosophical views, formulated in different cultures, is specific for Dasgupta and is one of the most important topics of the article. Dasgupta interprets philosophy as an idea, which is realized more or less fully by different philosophers and in different cultures and the example of which are points of similitude between Buddhism and the philosophy of Croce.
