Гений и место: Иннокентий Анненский в поисках сокровенных пространств
This analysis of the relationship between the artist (genius) and places of importance in his literary career begins from the premise that a specific place may serve to trigger a creative concept and subsequently the creation of a work of art. It examines the issues of symbolic topography and geographical images of place as exemplified in Innokenty Annensky’s poetry on the basis of two poems written in Vologda but linked to the locus of Tsarskoe Selo and introduces the concept of metageography to interpret the interplay of genius and place. Inner spaces may evolve as the intersection and interplay of completely different places in a genius’s mind, giving rise to a specific literary work. In this way, Annensky’s poetry transformed the visual and aural features of the Vologda landscape into the classical geocultural images of Tsarskoe Selo. The connection between various places in writing poetry is mediated and latent and demands multiple interpretations. The simultaneity at work in the creative process is a significant element in an artist’s metageography.
A palimpsest is regarded as a term used in cultural geography to describe a multilayered model of a place or landscape.

The purpose of this article is to show the specifics of the formation of cultural landscapes and geocultural images of Northern and Arctic cities in the context of the concept of post-urbanism. The ontological and phenomenological category of cold, which is key for understanding this specificity, has a decisive influence on the formation of both material and expressive (mental) environments and identities of the inhabitants of Northern cities. The image of cold can be considered as an important component of the symbolic capital of the Northern and Arctic cities, as well as a field of implementation and struggle of various post-colonial practices. The phenomenon of co-spatiality, basic for understanding post-urban trends of social development, acquires a special configuration in the cultural landscapes of Northern cities, contributing to the enrichment of the semantic space of post-urbanism as a whole.
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.
