Язык как резервуар культурных кодов в философии П.М. Бицилли

The “cultural code” (as a set of semantic attitudes of a particular community) becomes one of the most relevant terms today, when working with the subject of language and culture, is, it is deeply rooted in philosophy and literature. Cultural codes define creativity, which acquires meaning only in the conditions of the language existence. Cultural information turns out to be literally conditioned by language and encoded by patterns. The article examines the creative heritage of P.M. Bicilli as an emigrant philosopher who appealed to the subject of language as a reservoir of cultural codes. “There are no languageless cultures ...” ‒ these words of Bicilli reveal his intellectual attitudes and thematic preferences. While possessing a broad intellectual and cultural outlook, Bicilli was able to find in emigration his own way of existence as a thinker. He worked as a reviewer of humanitarian literature, collaborated with many periodicals of the Russian emigration. Not only his ideas attract our attention today, but also the very way of his existence as a linguistic person in a foreign language environment.
