Дилемма профессии: советские институты и современная университетская философия в России

In the last twenty years the number of university programs in Russia which involve the teaching of philosophy has increased dramatically. Despite the growth of the profession of academic philosophy in Russia and the absence of ideological pressure since the collapse of the USSR, Russian philosophers are still not properly integrated in the international field of academic philosophy. I suggest that in order to understand what happened to the University philosopher in Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union we have to look at the institutional and organizational levels of development of this academic discipline. This article focuses on current changes in the patterns of professional identity of Russian University philosophers. I analyze the institutional history of philosophy departments that were established in universities in the Soviet period. I argue that, on the one hand, the system of organization based on the division of knowledge into sub-disciplines, typical for Soviet universities, helps philosophers today to overcome the crises of professional self-identification after the discrediting of Soviet philosophy. On the other hand, the influence of professional standards follows the regionalization of the philosophical community.
