Semantic opposition as a means to explicate bipolar disorder in Stephen Fry’s autobiography Moab Is My Washpot
This article analyses the semantic oppositions essential for describing Stephen Fry’s bipolar affective disorder in his autobiography. This opposition is based on the ontological fragmentation of personality into the young I nar-rative and the mature I narrator. It is established that these oppositions are both intrapersonal and interpersonal and are manifested through relevant lin-guistic stylistic devices

The concept of Joy in C. S. Lewis's autobiography
The author's individual perception of the concept of Joy is identified in C. S. Lewis's spiritual autobiography «Surprised by Joy». The correlation between the author's individual and cultural-linguistic perception of the concept of Joy is analysed. The research shows that Evangelic meaning of the concept is actualized whereas a secular linguistic meaning of the concept of Joy as «pleasure, worldly happiness» is de-actualized in Lewis's text.

Genre specificity of V. Maksimov’s novel “Farewell from Nowhere”: to the problem of spiritual tradition
The article analyses the genre of the autobiographical novel by Vl. Maksimova in the context of the spiritual tradition and in connection with the typology of literary heroes. The study reveals closeness of the novel-confession “Farewell from Nowhere” to the semantic form of “confession-deed” (M. Bakhtin), embodied in the ancient Russian “Teachings” by Vladimir Monomakh. The type of hero-protagonist is determined by the spiritual movement he makes along the path of personal repentance and gaining...

The science of love and a classical university: Nikolay Kononov’s short story ‘Anastasia’s Amnesia
Based on N. Kononov’s short story ‘Anastasia's Amnesia’ (1999), this article considers the isomorphism between the conceptual field of ‘university’ and the core of the author’s conceptual system. The language game with the names of disciplines — philology, physics, medicine — reduces them to a science of love with a focus on the concepts of ‘ego’ and ‘body’. The article explores the role of intertextual references to A. S. Pushkin’s ‘Eugene Onegin’ and shows that the implicit and explicit names of...
Filling the space between two opposite parties: Edward Stanleyand a centre party
The article investigates Edward Stanley’s attempt to establish a centre party in 1834—1835. Based in unpublished sources and recent historical studies, the author identifies the causes of the failure of this project. These causes were both subjective – for instance, the King’s influence and Stanley’s personality – and objective, i.e the well-timed consolidation of the Whigs and the Tories.

The Place of Hermann Cohen’s Ideas in the Philosophy of Dialogue
My aim is to prove that Hermann Cohen was not only a philosopher of dialogue but has played an exceedingly important role in the history of that current of thought. His books Ethics of Pure Will (1904) and Religion of Reason out of the Sources of Judaism (1919) offer a detailed analysis of the relationships between I and Thou, I and It, I and We. In the first book these relationships are considered from the ethical-legal point of view and in the second from the viewpoint of religious anthropology...
