ABSTRACT ART IN THE IDEAL STATE
Author: Levina Tatiana, PhD, assistant professor, Faculty of Philosophy, National Research University – Higher School of Economics, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: Plato mentions danger of poetry and arts several times in “Republic”. Works of arts plays crucial role to morals, as they lead to deprave them, developing sense knowledge instead of the knowledge of intelligible forms. As noetic science does not advancing, therefore arts are not useful for the republic. Plato praise mathematics as a discipline that helps us to approach 'world of ideas' instead: contemplation on general meanings of things develops right intentions of our souls. I am trying to answer on the question: has abstract art also be banished, as mimetic forms of arts are, or it is associated with mathematics and is useful for citizens of the republic.
Keywords: abstract art, Plato, metaphysics, ideas, intelligible forms, Republic, Vivian del Rio, itself by itself

Author: Ostrovskaya Elena, PhD, Associate Professor, Faculty of Philology, National Research University – Higher School of Economics, e-mail: email@example.com
Summary: The Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5 became, in many ways, a precursor of the two world wars of the 20th century, first and foremost as a war of the urbanized civiliasation. The paper focuses on the poetic projection of this war as perceived by a city far away from the military action, the city as a locus of the war’s premises and consequences, and proposes a general approach towards the poetics of verse in the perspective of the urban projections as well as examines the reception of Port-Arthur in the poems of 1904-1906.
Keywords: Port-Arthur, Russo-Japanese war, poetry, urbanism, city

Author: Konacheva Svetlana, Dr. habil in philosophy, professor, Faculty of Philosophy, Russian State University for the Humanities (RSUH, Moscow, Russia), e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: The article discusses the theological hermeneutics of J. Caputo established on distinction between name and event found in the name. The author carries out a comparative analysis of the understanding of the event in the being-historical thinking of late Heidegger and spectral hermeneutics.It is shown that the event is something that is realized in what happens, and the name is a kind of preliminary formulation of the event, relatively stable developing structure. It was demonstrated that in the spectral hermeneutics words and things are contingent, transferable and available to deconstruction, but event is irreducible, untranslatable and not supposed to deconstruction.
Keywords: spectral hermeneutics, event, name, deconstruction, metaphysics, transferability, undecidability

HELMUT PLESSNER AND THE PROBLEM OF EXISTENTIAL
Author: Ischenko Natalia, PhD, assistant professor, Faculty of Philosophy, National Research University – Higher School of Economics, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: This paper is dedicated to the analysis of the existential-ontological concept of H. Plessner. In the paper the thesis that the philosophical anthropology of H. Plessner refutes the existential-ontological substantiation of the whole world-comprehension in the pre-empirical anthropology as the theoretical doctrine of “being-consciousness” is substantiated. According to Plessner, the philosophy of person is impossible without the philosophy of nature, as far as the mode of existence of the person can be perceived only as the mode of being of the “natural entity”. On this basis the philosophy subject is to be, according to Plessner, not theoretical, but “living”, or natural, existentia.

MADNESS AND AGGRESSION IN FILMS ABOUT MANIACS : IMAGE OF INNER MADNESS
Author: Kolotaev Vladimir, Dr.Habil. in philology, full professor, dean of the Faculy of the History of Art Russian State University for the Humanities (RSUH, Moscow, Russia), e-mail: email@example.com
Summary: Films about maniacs seen as attempt to solve the main aesthetic contradiction of the impression of the hero and of his inside knowledge, of subjective and of objective intention in the fiction. It is proved that a maniac, being pathological in his subjective world, begins to look like as representative of the objective deviancy, reinforcing the norm in the objective world, and vice versa, considering himself normal, he establishes a new pathology in the social world. Thus, psychoanalytic dialectic of the maniac behavior needs to be supplemented by social dialectics of individual behavior, prone to crime but at the same time consciously building his character.
Keywords: maniac behavior, paranoia, psychoanalysis, negative character, the imagery in the film

PHENOMENOLOGY OF METHOD: READING OF THE "HYLE" BY VLADIMIR BIBIKHIN
Author: Krishtaleva Ludmila, Senior Researcher, Institute of Philosophy of the RAS, e-mail: email@example.com
Summary: Reading the first three lectures "Forest (hyle)" by V. Bibikhin we can define how the philosopher understands the human nature. His point of view rests on philosophical and religious traditions but nevertheless is new and original. Following Aristotle V. Bibikhin is searching the specific of the human nature using concepts "automatic"," the nearest" and "twin", "God" and "freedom", "regard" and "prayer", "law" and "grace", "share" and "grasp". The philosopher says that there are structures incorporated in the human being named also as automatic, law, human nature. However actualization of human nature as "automatic" aspiration for salvation is not guaranteed. That is the paradox of the indefinabilaty of the man.
Keywords: Bibikhin, aporia, attention, pray, automaton, twin, freedom, prostasis, nearest
