Международные конгрессы и вопрос о философской терминологии: «Технический и критический словарь по философии» А. Лаланда

Вопросы философии. 2020. № 11. С. 82-86.

The article discusses the issue related to the formation of a universal philosophical terminology in the context of the World Congresses on Philosophy.

Conducting thematic seminars and discussions on an ongoing basis, correspondence and editing directly in the course of work, as well as the cultural background, and especially the opportunity to bring thematic fragments for discussion by the international community, make the Vocabulaire Technique et Critique de la Philosophie a unique work. Based on materials from the archives of Édouard Claparède in Geneva and the A. Lalande Foundation in Sorbonne (Victor Cousin's library), the author of the article demonstrates that at the beginning of the XXth century World Congress was an extraordinary socio-cultural phenomenon that shown at a new level the existing problems of international communication in the philosophical and scientific community. The question of philosophical terminology, raised by A. Lalande, received new contexts and new levels of discussion
