Мудрость кабиров. Ф.В.Й. Шеллинг о самофракийских божествах

Academic editor: П. В. Соколов
The books deals with one of the key episodes in the European intellectual history of the first half 19th - the debates around the essence, the content, and the historical significance of the ancient mysteries – in order to analyze the ways of interaction between the speculative philosophy and historical disciplines (Altertumswissenschaft, philology, archeology) within the romantic paradigm of humanities. This study is focused upon one of the pillar and most influential texts on the ancient mysteries in the romantic science – F.W.J. Schelling's treatise “On the divinities of Samothrace” (1815). The authors carried out a minute reconstruction of the history of the treatise, as well as of the large intellectual background (philosophical, scientific, political etc.) and the institutional context of the Schelling's speech, and retraced the main stages and forms of its reception in philosophy, ancient studies and philology. The book also examines the interference of the speculative-philosophical, historical, and linguistic argumentation in the interpretation of the ancient mysteries by Schelling, and articulates an array of important conclusions concerning the relations between philosophy and singular sciences in the European culture of Romanticism. The monograph resulted in a complete commented Russian translation of the Schelling's speech “On the divinities of Samothrace” (together with the author's footnotes), followed by a series of texts, reflecting the historical background and the ways of reception of this text (selected fragments from the G.-A. Astori's Dissertatio de diis cabiris, 1703; newspaper reports of the philosopher's public intervention in the Bavaria academy of sciences etc.).
