Article
Гаспарян Д. Э. Рацио. 2014. № 12. С. 27-40.

This article attempts to find out whether the contemporary antiphysicalism has a positive program. Using the approaches of such contemporary analytical philosophers as Colin McGinn, Joseph Levine, Noam Chomsky, Thomas Nagel, and David Chalmers, the author evaluates the ratio of negative and positive components in modern antiphysicalistic approaches, and determines the role of skepticism in their theories. To what extent can antiphysicalism withstand physicalism, and is physicalism in spite of its faults in a better position, since it offers, admittedly imperfect answers, while antiphysicalism does not offer anything other than criticism of the existing theories?

Article
Гаспарян Д. Э. Рацио. 2013. № 9. С. 57-76.

In the article below, I shall examine certain difficulties in the philosophical assumptions concerning the traditional notion of the global observer as the guarantor of the determinability and configuration of events in the world.  As I will show, global observation shall turn out to be incompatible with the figure of the observer, blocking, as a result, the opportunity of a determinable configuration of events.  My primary aim is the hypothetical constatation of eventlessness and, consequently, the indefiniteness of the world as a whole, on par with the uninformedness of the global observer regarding the true state of affairs.
