The article compares the well-known socially-oriented interpretations of the phenomenon of memory with the most interesting new elaborations by Russian scholars in philosophy, psychology, linguistics, and cultural studies. It is shown that the conceptualisations of memory aiming to overcome the dichotomy of individual and super-individual discover the path to synthesis in history.
The role of the natural and geographical factor has always been significant in the life of society. In the history of philosophy this role was comprehended rather long ago. In the 19th – early 20thcentury, special attention was paid to the role of natural factor. However, many scientific schools, including Marxist, did not consider it as the most important one, so that was the reason of its inefficient study in the Soviet times. Thus, unfortunately, the studies of the natural-geographical aspect are insufficient and do not reflect its actual role. The only field that pays major attention to this aspect is the geopolitical one. We consider that this problem should be investigated more thoroughly. The present paper tries to make up for lacking information on this subject and it can also be used as a lecture in the theory of history.
