Не-богостроительство и не-вампиризм: демифологизация творческого наследия А.А.Богданова
The article refutes two common distortions of A.A. Bogdanov' s creative heritage. The first is “god-building.” The second is the search for “occult” roots in the concept of collectivist transfusiology. A fundamental difference was made between A. Bogdanov"s rationalistic socialism and the “socialist religion” of A. Lunacharsky and M. Gorky, for which the neuropsychological approach was used in a broad cultural context (the difference in the dominant hemispheres of the brain). The absence of a connection between the metaphor of “vampirism” in A.A. Bogdanov"s social thought and his concept of comradely exchange of blood is exposed. Conjectures that falsify the initial history of the Institute of Blood Transfusion have been exposed.
