Essays on everyday life
Ilinskaya S. - Manipulated person (political instability as an expected result of the modern educational technologies) pp. 1-10


Abstract: This article focuses on the fact how the test system of knowledge control of a student became of one of the factors contributing to aggravation of mosaic mind of the modern Russian youth, making it more susceptible to manipulation. Using the specific examples, the author demonstrates nonconformity of the established by federal standard methods of assessment with the specificity of socio-humanitarian knowledge, as well as the consequence of their application for the political sphere. The accuracy of this research is substantiated by the fact that the author is not only a scientific associate, but also a university professor, having experience in preparing high schoolers for the Unified State Exam on Social Studies. For illustrating the results of educational reforms, the selection of the Republic of Kalmykia is no coincidence, since the author had an occasion to study and work in the region, and be a part of its political life. The research carries an interdisciplinary character. The scientific novelty consists in analysis of the consequences of conducting state exams in  the socio-humanitarian sphere in form of tests through the prism of destruction of the classical way of thinking coupled with the technical capabilities of network mobilization. In situation of multiplicity of discursive fields, it seems merely impossible to trace and control the competing with the state agents of influence and the channels they use. This is why the disruption of logical connection in thinking process, aggravated by the forms of control implemented into the Russian school system, threatens to turn into the mass political protests.

Question at hand
Maslova V.A. - The problem of symbol in the philosophy of A. F. Losev and French symbolists pp. 18-30


Abstract: The subject of this research is the analysis of the concept of “symbol” and its content in philosophy of Aleksei Fedorovich Losev and representatives of French symbolism. The first part of the article differentiates the boundaries of the concept of “symbol” and adjacent cognate categories, such as “allegory”, “metaphor” and “sign”. The author analyzes the dynamics of ideas on content of the notion of “symbol” in various periods of Losev’s works, from the initial essence of the world in onomatodoxy until the understanding of symbol as the projection of reality. The second part of the article provides a brief review of the social and cultural prerequisites for establishment of the views of the representatives of French School of Symbolism, as well as analyzes the aesthetic views of C. Baudelaire, S. Mallarme and other representatives of this movement. The concept of “symbol” is revealed from the perspective of its relation to the category of beauty. The conclusion is made on the presence of common features and differences in the philosophy of A. F. Losev and artistic-aesthetic views of C. Baudelaire, S. Mallarme and others.
Social philosophy
Igosheva M.A. - Ethnic identity in the conditions of destructive influences and traumatic impacts of the modern world globalization processes pp. 31-43


Abstract: The subject of this research is the question of mainstream of ethnic identity in the modern world. The main threat to cultural security of ethnic communities consists in the global spiritual expansion of Western civilization. This defines the importance of studying the resource potential of ethnic identity in the context of global transformations that destructively influence the livelihood of local communities. The author underlines that in the conditions of controversial globalization processes, risks and threats of the transforming social reality, the protective resources of ethnic identity come to the foreground, serving as the means for resisting social innovations. Methodological framework is comprised of the constructivist paradigm that allows viewing ethnic identity as a way of organization of sociocultural existence of the community on the basis of outlining of its “symbolic” boundaries. The acquired results clarify that in the conditions of uncertainty, the mainstream of ethnic identity is a protective response to the traumatic character of globalization processes. Namely the resource potential of ethnic identity helps to confront risks and threats of the transforming social reality, establishing symbolic boundaries between the “own” and “alien” world.
Political philosophy
Vinchkovskii E.V. - Desacralization of citizenship pp. 44-51


Abstract: This article analyzes the current models of obtaining the status of citizen and changes of the principles of integration into the political community. Emphasis is made on interpretation of the concept of citizenship in the works of Ayelet Shachar, who suggested viewing citizenship solely as a network of human relationships. Such citizenship is defines by A. Shachar as the “earned” (Ius Nexi) that removes the problem of loyalty lottery in the citizenship by birth. She draws conceptual parallels between citizenship and property with regards to personal character, need for establishing social link between the citizen-proprietor and the thing-status. Due to similar interpretation of political membership, A. Schahar critically assessed another model of entering the community as “citizenship for investments” that breaks the genetic relation of the citizen and the state. The study leans on the method of philosophical comparativism and systemic analysis which allow viewing the reception of philosophical ideas in the context of legal and political practices of the states, clarify their mutual influence. The author argues for the concept “citizenship for investment”, primarily as the new way of obtaining political membership. Multiple identities within personality must suggest multiple grounds for the emergence of such identity. In terms of resumption of the link between the ideas of citizenship and property, is highlighted an evident trend of turning the status into a commodity and possibility of selling it. The author believes that the explored models of obtaining the status of citizen open a new horizon for the studies dedicated to multiculturalism and mechanism of the formation of loyalty.
