Abstract

Thе article examines the connection between conceptualisation and transfer of knowledge in the humanities and analyses the role of these processes in the formation of conceptual and terminological framework for different types of discourse. The study draws on an analytical description of the development of the concept of energy in the Christian Orthodox discourse. The description was provided from the perspective of transferology — a new metadiscipline aimed to study the meaning-focused transformations of epistemological formations when transferred between different fields of knowledge. The author considers two types of transference — the explicit and implicit ones. In the former case, the genetic source of transferred epistemological formations — notions, concepts, terms, models, theoretical schemes, etc. — are known. In the latter case, the conceptual sources of the borrowed elements are unclear. The author addresses the need to develop a special epistemological discipline — conceptual comparative studies — aimed to analyse the ways of, and principles behind, the reality studied within discourses of various types.
