Образы города как ресурс анализа социального пространства
The notion of city image is connected with social city space and collective identity. We construct the space around us associating it with meaningful events from our lives or from wider historical and cultural context. The space begins to make sense for us only after we describe it and put it in some storyline or even chronological outline. In this article we consider different approaches to the concept of the city image, analyse ways of its making and perception, and suggest comparing special levels of describing - iconic and everyday images of the city - and their transformation conditions. The particular attention is given to the reasons of existing and co-existing of various interpretations of the same space.

The paper treats the issue of identity of the ego, which constitutes the central problem of personology. The skeptical approach to this problem, which sees it as not being subject to be resolved by means of science, began with D. Hume's work. Contemporary personologists (P. Ricoeur and others) approach this problem through study of culture, which imparts the ego with «narrative identity». Cultural historic psychology is a «Bridge of interpretations», upon which philosophy of culture meets psychology, and psychological data associated with «personality» are interpreted on the basis of some specific cultural philosophic theory. The «conflict of interpretations» plays and essential role in personology, which participates in the processes of emergence and overcoming of the cultural crisis. Philosophical and methodological problems that define the near term perspective development of personology are formulated: whether there are any «ego invariants» that remain regardless of any possible cultural determination; whether the ego possesses any rigidity in relation to cultural determination and, if it does, what is the nature of this rigidity; whether ego identity is destroyed when cultural determination diminishes or ceases, etc.
One of the rusian chroniclers has compared the expulsion of Izyaslav Yaroslavich with the capture of “land of Seth” by Canaanites. The sense of wording “land of Seth” remains not clear to modern interpretators; an amendment “land of Shem” is often proposed. Hovewer, in several medieval historical writings (Book of Josippon, Chronicle of George Hamartolos) Seth is a notable figure well known due to his knowledge of alphabet and astronomy. Even more, according to Joseph Flavius’ “Antiquites of the Jews” and The Revelation of Methodius of Patara, Seth descendants lived compactly in an area which in consequence could be called “land of Seth”. Thus, it is possible that rusian chronicle deliberately used the expression “land of Seth” to metaphorically denote Palestine.
