The monograph, prepared by the staff of the Faculty of Law of the Higher School of Economics, reflects such legal phenomenon as systematization of the legislation (legal norms) and its prospects for the development of legal regulations. The principles, conditions and incentives of systematization in today Russia, as well as existing industry problems, are considered in the context of the proposed theoretical method of integrated systematization, conventionally referred to as “modeling of the legal field”.
This book is for intended legal scholars, legislators, legal practitioners, as well as graduate students and professors of law schools and faculties.
The book looks at the history of science and its cultural contexts from the second half of the 16th to the beginning of the 18th century. The research is centred around several interrelated phenomena: scientific method, demonstrable theories, simplicity of language, open scientific communities and the citizens’ response to experiment demonstrations, public lectures and printed research. Thanks to scientific texts and experiments being easy to understand, such faculties of the soul as vision, imagination and memory were then reinterpreted.
They became the basement for a new knowledge and inspired trust in experience and new forms of transmitting and storing information. A change was produced in the status of science and scientists, scientific and educational institutions as well as scientific practices. This prompted mutual influence of liberal arts in terms of language, concepts and ideas. Poetic reflection on the new picture of the world was born, together with the desire to incorporate this new knowledge into one’s live experience. Scientists, who in their writing often made use of poetry and rhetoric, saw these as a means to make their work more attractive to patrons and curious citizens.
The book is intended for a wide range of humanities scholars engaged in cultural studies, philosophy, philology and history of science or art.
The book addresses specialists in the fi eld of the history of tourism and international relations, academics, students, postgraduates, and those interested in Soviet history.
The monograph reveals the basic aspects of everyday life in the Soviet Union in the context of accelerated and distorted modernization of the country. The world of Soviet everyday life is reconstructed from basic aspects such as domestic service and household practices, work experience and labor relations, leisure and active forms of recreation, family experience and family strategy, “domestic statism” and so on. Reconstructive research is augmented by extensive use of materials from the leading Russian archives which were previously unknown to the scientific community. Application of micro historical approach and methods of oral history helped in studying of these neglected aspects of Soviet everyday life, such as the practices of basic survival in both normal and force majeure periods of Russian history. Social statistical data provided an opportunity to move up from the micro level to the macro level of Soviet everyday life.
For teachers and students of humanitarian faculties in the specialties of “History”, “Social Anthropology”, “Cultural Study”, “Sociology” and “Politics”, as well as for anyone interested in the life of Russians in the 20th century.
