Некоторые особенности раввинистического комментария: опыт прочтения «Песни Песней»
Demonstrating uncertain broadened understanding of epistemology as a common ground of phenomenology of religion and philosophical phenomenology that provides a possibility of even pseudo-phenomenological references the article proposes to specify epistemology in strict distinction from values on the basis of qualitative distinction between cognitive and emotional structures of consciousness. A possibility of such way of basing is confirmed by an example of Hebraic tradition that shows feelings, imbued with them sensa- tions and images non-cognitively. It is pointed out in the article a possibility of understanding the unity of consciousness on the basis of world itself, not on the basis of sensations as cognitive, the unity of feelings and values is also pointed out. The proposed way of epistemology specification would allow to correlate any non-positivist methodologies with scientific criteria, to overcome phenomenology of religion uncertainty as a confusion of research and theological spheres to the science of religion and would promote cognitive strictness of phenomenology.
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.
Education by observation: Students in research process The article argues for a new technology in teaching students of state and municipal management. The method is based on direct observation and description of management practices by students who lack any systematic research skills (the «naive observer» method). The authors ague that the use of this method allows to solve two types of problem at once: a pedagogical one and a scientific one. Students observe, and provide a description of, facts of the Russian provincial life without any interpretation whatsoever, which allows to obtain a picture of the social life that is closer to the reality than the one obtained by use of interpretational schemes of sociologists and journalists. It is only the latter picture that is currently used by the authorities as a basis for management decisions and for developing projects of social changes.
This proceedings publication is a compilation of selected contributions from the “Third International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems” which took place at the University of Florida, Gainesville, February 16–18, 2011. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academia in order to exchange new discoveries and results in a broad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information Systems: Mathematical Foundation presents state-of-the art research and is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in some of the most recent discoveries in information theory and dynamical systems. Scientists in other disciplines may also benefit from the applications of new developments to their own area of study.
