Отдел: что создали философы-шестидесятники
Viktor Sosnora (1936—2019) was one of the most prominent and most paradoxical in status figures in Russian poetry of the second half of the 20th century. This article presents and substantiates a hypothesis on Sosnora’d place in the history of Russian literature. It is suggested that while Sosnora published his work in Soviet publications and considered the context of Sixtiers poets to be suitable for him, his poetry had more in common with underground literature, rather than official. The protagonist of Sosnora’s poetry is a tragic trickster; the image of history in his poems is not teleological, in contrast to the images of history in official Soviet poetry. From the 1970s on, the characteristics of postmodernism and the mixing of signs from various eras increased in his poetry.
This work is a methodological and introspective look at one of the most unique figures in Russian philosophy. Often regarded as the Russian Socrates, Merab Mamardashvili was known for his lectures focusing on consciousness as a state, and as a condition relating to existence. Through his lectures Merab was able to contribute greatly to the field of philosophy; however, his preference for this conversational style meant that few works made it into print. Diana Gasparyan's efforts in Merab Mamardashvili's Philosophy of Consciousness aim not only to bring the thoughts and work of Mr. Mamardashvili to a new audience by translating them into English, but also to offer personal insights gained through a series of discussions amongst peers in the field of Philosophy, at institutions of higher learning in Russia and the United States. This work is a unique opportunity to explore the genius of Mamardashvili through the eyes of a contemporary.
