Femme fatale - роковая загадка
An explanation for a phenomenon of femme fatale in modernity is presented, that is quite a unique psychological profile based on a paradoxical combination of narcissism and a profound interest in the Other’s talent. But it is an interest just in the talent. As for the bearer of that talent, an individual, — he is something that is to be transcended. The examples of femme fatale are Lilya Brik и Lou Salome, who was a muse of F. Nietzsche and Z. Freud and directed the former to the idea of a Superman and the latter to the idea of narcissism.
We conducted a cross-cultural study of the Dark Triad and Emotional Intelligence for Russian and Azerbaijani samples. After establishing the cross-cultural invariance for Emotional Intelligence questionnaire and Dirty Dozen questionnaire we compared Russian and Azerbaijani samples and found influence of sex, age and belonging to a specific sample (Moscow vs. Baku) and their interactions on Emotional Intelligence, Machiavellianism, Psychopathy, and Narcissism. The hypothesis of the relation between Emotional Intelligence and traits of Dark Triad was rejected for both samples.
The article is anylized the totalitarian power in the framework of the theory of narcissism. Narcissistic projections grand and insignificant "I" explain the specifics of ideological idealization of the people from one point of view, and terror as the implementation mechanism of devaluation, from a different point of view. It is demonstrated that the theory of narcissism can be heuristic to explain various phenomena of political and social life.
Approbation of Russian language version of the Dirty Dozen questionnaire aimed at measurement of sub- clinical personal traits forming so-called Dark Triad – Machiavellianism, Psychopathy, Narcissism – was the purpose of the work. 362 participants aged 17–62 (M = 24.68, SD = 7.16; 123 male and и 239 female) took part in the research. Diagnostics methods Dark Dozen, Narcissistic traits, Mac-scale, the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale, Scale of Psychological Reasonableness, T.V. Kornilova’s New Ques- tionnaire “Tolerance for Ambiguity”, McLain’s MSTAT-II, D.V. Lusin’s EmIn Questionnaire, A.V. Kar- pov’s Reflexivity Questionnaire and R. Sternberg’s method “Creative Titles” were used in the research. Three factors structure of the Dirty Dozen Questionnaire was confirmed by means of confirmatory factor analysis; its scales showed satisfactory reliability and convergent validity (with respect to other question- naires). It was shown that levels of psychopathy and machiavellianism are higher in men than women. Psychopathy correlates negatively with emotional intelligence and scales of psychological reasonable- ness but positively – with creativity and tolerance for ambiguity. The results make it possible to state that the Dark Dozen is the first valid Russian language diagnostics instrument for simultaneous measurement levels of personal characteristics of Dark Triad.
The article considers the Views of L. N. Tolstoy not only as a representative, but also as a accomplisher of the Enlightenment. A comparison of his philosophy with the ideas of Spinoza and Diderot made it possible to clarify some aspects of the transition to the unique Tolstoy’s religious and philosophical doctrine. The comparison of General and specific features of the three philosophers was subjected to a special analysis. Special attention is paid to the way of thinking, the relation to science and the specifics of the worldview by Tolstoy and Diderot. An important aspect is researched the contradiction between the way of thinking and the way of life of the three philosophers.
Tolstoy's transition from rational perception of life to its religious and existential bases is shown. Tolstoy gradually moves away from the idea of a natural man to the idea of a man, who living the commandments of Christ. Starting from the educational worldview, Tolstoy ended by creation of religious and philosophical doctrine, which were relevant for the 20th century.
This important new book offers the first full-length interpretation of the thought of Martin Heidegger with respect to irony. In a radical reading of Heidegger's major works (from Being and Time through the ‘Rector's Address' and the ‘Letter on Humanism' to ‘The Origin of the Work of Art' and the Spiegel interview), Andrew Haas does not claim that Heidegger is simply being ironic. Rather he argues that Heidegger's writings make such an interpretation possible - perhaps even necessary.
Heidegger begins Being and Time with a quote from Plato, a thinker famous for his insistence upon Socratic irony. The Irony of Heidegger takes seriously the apparently curious decision to introduce the threat of irony even as philosophy begins in earnest to raise the question of the meaning of being. Through a detailed and thorough reading of Heidegger's major texts and the fundamental questions they raise, Haas reveals that one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century can be read with as much irony as earnestness. The Irony of Heidegger attempts to show that the essence of this irony lies in uncertainty, and that the entire project of onto-heno-chrono-phenomenology, therefore needs to be called into question.
