Timoshchuk E.A. - To the centenary of "Das Heilige" by Rudolf Otto pp. 33-42


Abstract: The object of this study is the influence of the book of one of the best authors of the XX century, Rudolf Otto. The subject of this study is the conceptual core of his teaching: the state of otherness and its transcendence through the numinous feeling. Phenomenology of religion R. Otto is consonant with the theme of interconfessional and interreligious dialogue, as it puts in front of the researchers the actual issues of interaction between secular and religious, liberal and conservative, legal and moral. What are the principles and levels of interreligious and interconfessional dialogue? Is interaction possible between religious and secular discourses? Are religious discourse and religious rhetoric permissible in politics, education and other "secularized" spheres of public life? The idea of the paper is to reveal the phenomenology of Otto as a method of transcending humanistic communication.The paper is based on general scientific methods of theoretical level: comparative, genetic, system, and structural types of analyses. General scientific methods of the empirical level are represented by an counting. From general methods, the author relied on analysis / synthesis, abstraction / concretization, generalization / restriction. From the private scientific philosophical methods, hermeneutics was used. The toolkit of scientific research includes the following arrays of scientific knowledge: rsl.ru, elibrary.ru, google.scholar.ru. The main conclusions of the conducted research are: 1) the construction of socio-cultural objects is connected with the individuation and concretization of diverse cultural worlds; 2) the Rudolf Otto’s phenomenology of religion is a method of contextual correlation of various spiritual practices, that contributes to the formation of consensus formations, semantic clusters; 3) "Das Heilige" establishes communication between rational and irrational trends in philosophy, seeks to resolve their disputes; 4) the phenomenology of Otto is of value to the state policy in the field of religion representation in secular societies. The novelty of the research is the positioning of Otto on the field of the pluralistic-synergistic process of the noosphere among K. Jung and R. Fricke, W. James and M. Eliade. The field of application of the results: history of philosophy, phenomenology of religion, intercultural communication.

Timoshchuk E.A. - Phenomenological and Aesthetic Construction of Religion pp. 20-35


Abstract: The object of this research is the representation of the religious in modern descriptive philosophical models. The subject of the research is religion taken as a phenomenon and aisthesis. The author examined the evolution of the phenomenological-aesthetic construction of religion from the enthusiastic reception of R. Otto to the crisis of the intuitive-essentialist phenomenology of religion. Assuming that the resources of this paradigma are not yet exhausted, the researcher illuminates other branches such as the aesthetic phenomenological representation of religion associated with the Munich group of philosophers, the intentional phenomenology of religion that goes through Ingarden. Particular attention is paid to the integral function of phenomenology and aesthetics. The research was carried out mainly with the help of general scientific methods of the theoretical level: comparative, genetic, systemic, and structural types of analyzes. General scientific methods of the empirical level are represented by the account and frequency analysis. As general scientific methods, the author relied on analysis / synthesis, abstraction / concretization, and generalization / restriction. From the private scientific philosophical methods, hermeneutics was used. The toolkit of scientific research includes arrays of scientific knowledge such as rsl.ru, elibrary.ru, google.scholar.ru. The main findings of the study are: 1) the aesthetics and phenomenology of religion are presented as a methodology for transcending religious and cultural differences; 2) the emphasis of intentional phenomenology on the accuracy of the sociocultural description of religion instead of the incomprehensibility of religious entities facilitates the disclosure of beliefs as self-constituting life-worlds, while religion is a form of sociocultural identity and its ontological status entirely depends on the intentionality of participants in a particular social group, which makes religion similar to art; 3) despite the fact that most religions claim the exclusivity of their dogmas, an intentional analysis of the history of their origins allows us to confidently assert that the objects of their faith are rooted in the socio-historical context and are projective entities rooted in the aesthetic structure of consciousness. A special contribution of the author to the study of the topic is the phenomenological-aesthetic constituting of the sociocultural network of being. The novelty of the research consists in conjugation of the individualized vital worlds of science and religion and the attempt of their totalizing theorization through a phenomenological-aesthetic paradigm. The scope of the application of these results includes media policy, intercultural communication, and art criticism.
