Андрей Белый. На Перевале / Подгот. текста, комментарии Д.О. Торшилова
The article dwells on the character of the impact of the dramatic poem "Peer Gynt" by Henrik Ibsen on "Northern Symphony" by Andrey Bely. The analysis is based on Bely''s articles concerning the Norwegian playwright''s oeuvre of and on the comparison the two works'' systems of images, which are claimed to be parallel. However, Bely turns the "real" layer of the dramatic poem into the "symbolic" one of the symphony.
In this article is made an attempt to reconstruct the attitude of the historian A.N.Savin to the situation in Russia in 1917 and after that, to analise his political views and ideas.
Transhumanism is the brand-new term, which appears only in the beginning of the 21st century. The adherents of this term consider further development of humanity in a close contact with nanotechnology. People were always interested in how to improve the quality of life and prolong it. Medieval alchemists didn’t find the philosopher’s stone, the Holy Grail is still a legend. The Third Reich scientist’s experiments influenced in the development of medicine, but didn’t reveal the secret of immortality. In the 21st century scientists came more than ever closer to the creation of perfect man with the help of nanotechnology. How do philosophers consider this breakthrough in philosophy of technics?
