From quantum cosmology to anthropology and back

Pavlenko A.N.


The article demonstrates that the logical-philosophical analysis of Copernicus’ Principle and Anthropic Cosmological Principle (B. Carter) refers us to the Plato’s Cosmic Principle. The basis for their constructive critic is the appearance of the inflationary universe theory in modern quantum cosmology. This Theory allows the development of the Universe within two stages: 1) inflation and 2) evolution. It is shown that the same two-stage requirement detected in the development of an observer (the Human Being). This similarity can be fixed in the “Principle of genetic similarity” (PGS) of the observer and the Universe. PGS can be used as: 1) the criteria for demarcation of realistic and nonrealistic scenarios which are describing the Universe, 2) the basis for reconsideration of certain problems of biomedical ethics.

Mysteries of spirit and science problems

Naydysh V.M.


In this paper is shown that such characteristics of knowledge as the mystery and the scientific problem are different by their essence from the viewpoint of the cognitive and values consciousness’ function. The mystery is a form of spirituality, where the knowledge and experience of reality are a kind of the syncretic unity. Therefore, the mystery is uninterpreted form of the spirit in essence. I show that cognitive features dominate over the value features inside the scientific problem. So, the problem can be transformed into a finite number of available, algorithmic tasks. The problems ‘task is to introduce the subject of knowledge into the field of the unknown structural relationship of reality. A mystery brings to mind the person about the infinity of being.
