Причастность и универсалии в восточно-христианской мысли: некоторые темы и линии
The article traces how the topic of the hierarchy of the participating beings, given by Dionysius the Areopagite on the basis of the Neoplatonic tetrad (Goodness, Being, Life, Mind), and, as it is supposed, of the doctrine of the hierarchy of natural beings by Gregory ofNyssa, were developed in the doctrines of Maximus the Confessor and,John of Damascus. "Ambigua", 7; 24, along with "Centuries on Charity", 3.24-25, by Maximus, and "Exposition of the Orthodox Faith", 86, by Damascene are considered. The paper then analyzes in which way Maximus and Damascus followed Dionysius and in which way they did not. It is shown that Maximus was influenced, through Dionysus, by both the Neoplatonic tetrad and Gregory's teaching on the taxonomy of the beings, while Damascus demonstrates adherence to only the first line.
The article is concerned with the notions of technology in essays of Ernst and Friedrich Georg Jünger. The special problem of the connection between technology and freedom is discussed in the broader context of the criticism of culture and technocracy discussion in the German intellectual history of the first half of the 20th century.
