Leonard A. Kalinnikov: a biographical sketch
Kant's theoretical philosophy
Kant versus Vladimir Solovyov: gnosiology with reflection and without itAbstract
This article seeks to compare Immanuel Kant's and Vladimir Solovyov's gnosiologies. The comparison is based on the philosophers' attitude to reflection — a basic cognitive mechanism. If, according to Kant, the acquisition of true knowledge is impossible without reflection (including transcendental reflection), Solovyov builds his theory of knowledge on entirely different grounds, therefore, he has to rely on God and intellectual intuition in discovering the truth. Only having established the pros and cons of both gnoseologies, we can define whose theory — Kant’s or Solovyov’s — is more suitable to describe the process of cognition by a human being — a being in possession of rather modest cognitive tools.
The receptions of Kant's philosophy
At the edge of romanticism or beyond it? E. T. A. Hoffmann and the nature of art in Kant's aestheticsAbstract
This article undertakes to prove that I. Kant's dualism underlay the artistic two-world system of E. T. A. Hoffmann, who opposed the philosophical monism of romanticists. Under the influence of Kant's aesthetics and philosophy of art, E. T. A. Hoffmann's works develop a tendency towards exceeding the limits of traditional stylistic forms, which leads to a free interaction of different stylistic devices in the best of his works.
The "aesthetic turn": from Kant and romanticism to modern philosophyAbstract
This article is devoted to the origins of the "aesthetic turn" in contemporary philosophy and the increasing importance of aesthetic categories and art experience for contemporary theories. Kant’s aesthetics, concepts of beauty, the sublime, genius, as well as various aspects of their interpretation within the romantic doctrine of "new mythology" and aestheticisation of life, the discovery of a fragment as a way of poetic thinking became topical in contemporary debates about reality, knowledge, human being and society.
