Kulikov E.A. - Categories of general, special and singular in criminal law: semantic analysis pp. 1-17


Abstract: The subject of the study is the regularities of the interaction of the categories of subjective dialectics with the fundamental concepts of Russian criminal law. The criminal law is based on linguistic structures, in connection with which the article is devoted to the linguistic aspects of the categories of general, special and singular. Some attention is paid to analytical philosophy and analytical jurisprudence. The linguistic turn in epistemology and epistemology of the mid-20th century drew attention to the linguistic side of various texts, justified the need to study this side, since language and communication form the basis of human interaction, determine the content and development of social relations. In the future, a significant part of the research, including on criminal law topics, is devoted to the language of the law and legislative language systematics. The lexical meaning of the words "general", "singular", "separate", "separate", "separate", "special", "generalize" is considered, their content from the point of view of etymology, word formation, synonymy is revealed. Some attention is paid to the meaning of the sought terms in the social sphere. The question of the categories of dialectics in criminal law is raised extremely rarely, the categories of general, special and singular mentioned in the article have not been practically studied. From a linguistic point of view, these categories can not always be distinguished from each other, they often overlap in content, and in order to determine their legal aspects, i.e. manifestations in the field of jurisprudence, one semantic characteristic is not enough, it can only be considered as a stage of research. Semantic aspects of categories set guidelines for clarifying their philosophical and special scientific content, explain the options for possible word usage, outline its boundaries.With the help of language characteristics, the research range is set, i.e., to distinguish from related concepts and terms already at the initial stage of research. In the process of interpreting the criminal law, the lexical method acts as the leading one and, along with the systemic one, allows you to understand the meaning of legal prescriptions as accurately as possible.

Kulikov E.A. - Philosophical categories in legal science: problems of theory and methodology pp. 59-77


Abstract: The research subject is the patterns of manifestation of philosophical categories in the legal sphere of social life, the approaches to understanding philosophical categories and the specificity of interpretation of philosophical categories by legal science. The author considers the modern ideas about the system of philosophical categories presented in scientific works. In the second part of the article, based on the approaches to the categories as a philosophical phenomenon, the author considers legal categories. The author analyzes the approaches to these categories, studies their role in jurisprudence and the system of legal categories. Special attention is given to the diversity of legal notions. The research subject is closely connected with the methodology. The key methodological approach is the dialectical approach, which is the basis for the system of categories. The author also uses general scientific methods of analysis, synthesis, comparison, generalization, abstraction, and the formal-legal method. The author attempts to actualize the problematics of legal categories and legal notions, and manifestation of philosophical categories in law. This work is the continuation of the author’s candidate thesis. Here the author uses the higher level of abstraction.

Kulikov E.A., Bedenkov V.V. - Negative legal responsibility and ordinary legal consciousness: points of juxtaposition


Abstract: The subject of this article is the points of juxtaposition between the legal responsibility (for legal infraction, negative) and ordinary (public) legal consciousness. The object of this research is the social legal phenomenon of “legal responsibility” and ordinary legal consciousness. The aforementioned phenomena are examined from the perspective of their correlation and interaction. The authors also analyze the essence and composition of the legal responsibility; each of these parts is subjected to examination regarding its interconnection with the ordinary legal consciousness or substantiation by the ordinary legal consciousness. In particular, it implies the notion of responsibility; bases of responsibility as the social legal phenomenon; special internal characteristics of responsibility, such as principles, functions, goals, types, and measure. The scientific novelty consists in comparison of the phenomena of the ordinary legal consciousness and legal responsibility. Despite the fact that at first glance the practically do not have any points of intersection, the authors determine several aspects, which demonstrate that the indicated phenomena actively interact and substantiate each other. The distinctness of the ordinary legal consciousness of one or another society defines the character, content and limits of legal responsibility; otherwise, this mechanism of legal regulation will be incompetent. The ordinary legal consciousness contains the social and philosophical grounds of responsibility; the correspondence to the ordinary legal consciousness justifies the efficiency of legal responsibility in application of its functions, as well as achievement of the goals. The measure of responsibility must correlate with the ordinary legal consciousness of society; in other case, the effect of responsibility can turn out to be directly opposite to that planned by the government authority.

Kulikov E.A., . - State of justice and constitutional state: comparative analysis based on the legal doctrine of Eurasianism


Abstract: Within the framework of this article the authors examine the phenomena of constitutional state and state of justice as the alternative state legal ideals. Constitutional state is being interpreted as an institution occurred on the background of Romano-Germanic civilization, which is acceptable namely for the legal culture of Western European and North American nations. The characteristic of the state of justice is based on the works legal experts of the Eurasian vector of Russian thought – M. V. Shakhmatova and N. N. Alekseeva. The authors consider the positive and negative aspects of the aforementioned phenomena, as well as their correspondence with the historical circumstances of development of the Russian super-ethnos. A correlation is drawn between the phenomenon of constitutional state and the phenomenon of police state. The authors pose a question on the inapplicability of the ideal of constitutional state towards all nations, as well as claim about its close correlation with the police state. It is substantiate that for Russia more acceptable is the ideal of state of justice based not on the external legal influence of individuals, but on their internal improvement, sense of conscience, and mature level of legal awareness.

Kulikov E.A. - Social Danger of a Deed as the Main Attribute of a Misdeed pp. 18-48


Abstract: The article is devoted to social danger as the most important attribute of a deed, which helps qualify it as a misdeed. The author analyzes legal definitions, existing in the current Russian legislation, and outlines the legal attributes of this phenomenon. The author substantiates the idea that social danger is an attribute of any misdeed, not only of a crime, and argues the thesis that “social danger” is the most appropriate formulation of a material attribute of a misdeed. The author defines the content of the required attribute, applying the interpretations of the Plenum of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation (in their development from 1999 till 2015) and the achievements of the science of criminal law. The author applies the methods of formal logic, interpretation of law, comparison, generalization, abstraction and legal narration. First of all, the author analyzes the provisions of the Decree of the Plenum of the Supreme Court No. 58, adopted on December 22, 2015, “On the Practice of Awarding Criminal Punishment by the Courts of the Russian Federation”, related to the study of the character of social danger of a deed; compares the Plenum’s interpretations of the mentioned attributes of social danger in the previous and the new decrees. The author substantiates the opinion about the dual objective-subjective character of social danger of a deed and about the fact that the existence of such an attribute allows considering the misdeed as a socio-legal phenomenon. The author proposes the working definition of a misdeed.

Kulikov E.A. - Law interpretation measure: problems of history pp. 133-158


Abstract: The subject of the research is the range of regularities of interaction between the category of measure and such an important component of legal regulation of public relations as law interpretation. On the base of the theoretical and legal understanding of measure formulated in the previous studies, the author considers the displays of measure within the interpretation of law and reveals the components of the measure of this process on the base of the analysis of special literature. In addition, the author analyzes the ways of interpretation of law, the types of interpretation and the approaches to classification. The main research method is the formal-legal method. The author also applies the generalization of judicial practice, analysis and comparison of views on the problem, and the study of the categories of dialectics. On the basis of the research, the limits of law interpretation and its general measure can be defined as the existing in the whole legal system of the society basic grounds, ideas and principles, conditioning the existence and development of all legal phenomena, getting into its regulatory system. The understanding of law as a measure of public life can be considered as one of such limits which helps formulating the requirements to its form and content.

Kulikov E.A. - Traditionalist Teaching of Rene Guenon pp. 1-54


Abstract: The subject of the research is the traditionalist teaching introduced by a famous philosopher of the first half of the XXth century Rene Guenon. Based on the analysis of some Guenon's works, the author of the article describes Guenon's views on the relationship between secular and spiritual authorities, the image of an ideal governor, categories of quality, quantity and measure and methodology of application of these categories from the point of view of traditional sacred science and modern secular science. The author of the article also analyzes Rene Guenon's approach to his contemporary world situation as well as applicability of his approach to the present period. In the course of writing this article Kulikov has used the spiritual and culturological approach combined with the dialectical approach as well as methods of analysis, synthesis, comparison, generalization and abstraction. The author of the article examines views of an European traditionalist Rene Guenon that are underservingly understudied in modern philosophy, especially in philosophy of law. Kulikov analyzes Guenon's writings mostly from the political and legal points of view and searches for political and legal motifs therein. In addition, he pays special attention to Guenon's views on the 'quantity-quality-measure' triad.

Kulikov E.A. - On some manifestations of the category of measure in Russian civil law pp. 106-119


Abstract: The author attempts to analyze some manifestations of the category of measure in civil law. Measure, as a philosophical category of the connective “quantity – quality – measure”, penetrates all legal phenomena and, consequently, has its manifestations in civil law. The article describes the phenomena of the limits of civil rights implementation, the abuse of rights, the notion of a treaty, the principle of freedom of a treaty, and analyzes the problem of the limits of freedom of a treaty. The author concludes that the universality of measure and its categorical character are as salient in civil law as in criminal law. The research is based on the dialectical method which includes the teaching about dialectic categories. Moreover, the author uses the general scientific methods of analysis, synthesis, abstracting, comparison, and the special scientific methods such as the formal-logical method and the method of explanation of the law. The author concludes that the general measure of rights and responsibilities implementation, balancing the measure of freedom of a treaty, is the principle of combination of the letter and the spirit of the law in explanation of the norms of the law. Substantiation of this principle means that the legal positivist grounds are moderated by the grounds of sociological jurisprudence. The understanding of a right as a measure which is typical for both types of legal understanding doesn’t help to reveal a contradiction in this situation but proves that only the combination of approaches to the law can help to evaluate its genuine essence as a living and acting regulator of social relations.

Kulikov E.A. - Category of Measure in Legal Science: Matters of Theory and Research Methodology pp. 89-99


Abstract: This article considers the general theoretical and methodological matters related to the research into the expression of the “measure” category in legal science. It gives a philosophical and semantic description of the meaning of this category. In particular, it reviews the linguistic palette of notions which the word “measure” may take in the Russian language. It analyzes the volume and contents of the category of “measure” in the legal environment. The basis for such analysis is the interrelation between law and measure which may be traced in virtually every type of legal consciousness. Also, it defines the methodological pre-requisites for the research into the expression of measure in the legal aspect of the society’s life. Ultimately, the subject of research is the general regularities of the connection between the category of measure and legal phenomena, which should in the future serve as the foundation for tracing particular expressions of the category in question in the components of the legal framework in the society.  In this article, the legal and dogmatic, the comparative methods, the synthetic method, the abstraction technique, and the legal history method were used. This article is one the first studies of the theoretical matters related to the expression of the category of measure in legal science. The author attempts to define the methodological pre-requisites for considering the legal aspects of the above category. The article identifies the legal contents and relationship between measure and the key categories of legal studies – the law, the legal framework, the principle of law, the legal culture. On the basis of the above, it presents the general theoretical model of expressions of measure in legal phenomena. Measure is interpreted by the author as a universal qualitative and quantitative category which characterizes legal phenomena externally, internally and in their individual structural elements. In doing so, it is also essential to rely on the qualitative and quantitative components of measure without separating them from each other.
