«Master of Philosophy» in the Russian Educational System in the 19th and Early 20th Centuries

Vanchugov V.V.


The article helms the reader to the analysis of the historical and philosophical background of the Master of Philosophy academic degree in Russian intellectual circles of the 19th and 20th centuries. Special emphasis is given to the university education while the related phenomena in «theological academies» are left unattended. The author draws on memoirs and official documents to highlight various landmarks pertaining to the process of Russian student development into the Master of Philosophy: preparation for the examination, examination, dispute, debate with opponents, dissertation, professional career.

Aporias of John Wyclif's Realistic Hermeneutics

Sokolov P.V.


The axis of the publication is the impact of the late medieval logical and metaphysical theories upon the hermeneutical methodology in the exegetical practice of one of the most prominent Biblical scholars of that period - John Wyclif (1320/1324-1384), his opponents and predecessors. One of the major conclusions drawn in the article is that the late medieval interpretation of the biblical allegory as a predicative relation demonstrates the pertinence of the 14th century exegetical writings analysis in the context of the pivotal problem of the 20th century logic - the problem of the interplay between ontology and the logical analysis of language (B. Russell, G. Frege, etc.).

Emergence, Varieties of Explanation, and the Generality of Laws

Schröder J.


The principal aim of this paper is to show that a constraint that C.D. Broad imposed on the acceptability of deductions of macroproperties which would show them to be non-emergent, viz. that they use only general laws of nature, is too strong and should be replaced by the weaker condition that the deductions be non-trivial. First, the relevant notion of generality is made more precise. I propose that a law is general iff it is applicable to a diversity of phenomena relative to what I call «domain constitutive properties». In order to substantiate the claim that Broad's constraint is too strong I analyse three examples of explanations of macroproperties from robotics and the life sciences. All of them are non-trivial explanations and should thereby render the explained properties non-emergent. Finally, I briefly indicate three ways in which an explanation may be non-trivial.

From Biopolitics and Necropolitics to Geo-Politics and Body-Politics of Knowledge

Tlostanova M.V.


The article focuses on the interrelated epistemic and ontological dimensions of the global crisis of modernity. The critical analysis of the possible ways out offered within various Western and non-Western paradigms (such as biopolitics and necropolitics) is provided. The author argues for the decolonial (post)continental geopolitics and body-politics of knowledge stressing locality as the epistemological correlation with the sensing body perceiving the world from a particular locale and particular local history rather than a geo-historical location of the knowing subject. Rethinking of the Cartesian formula «I think therefore I am» into «I am where I think» comes along with discrediting of neo-liberal market teleology and the last progressive-universalist vector of global history vanishes together with the last closed utopia of the global salvation.
