    The Impact of Heinrich Rickert's Ideas about Chaos on Rudolf Carnap
    Wschodnioeuropejskie Czasopismo Naukowe 12 (8): 43-45. 2019.
    This research aims to address the hypothesis of the possible influence of Rickert’s ideas about chaos on the philosophy of Rudolf Carnap. This paper considers arguments in favor of the hypothesis and those against it. I show that pieces of evidence exist, proving that Rickert’s interpretation of chaos influenced Rudolf Carnap when he was working on Der logische Aufbau der Welt. I argue that Carnap’s pre-Aufbau unpublished manuscript Vom Chaos zur Wirklichkeit demonstrates this influence. T…Read more

    On the Possibility to Teach Doing Philosophy
    Granì 20 (12): 24-29. 2018.
    The purpose of this paper is to clarify and evaluate the possibility of teaching doing philosophy. Using analysis as a main method, I argue that philosophizing, as an activity, has different levels, some of which are connected with specifically philosophical abilities. By analyzing John Rudisill’s minimal conception of «doing philosophy», I demonstrate that many philosophical practices, such as the interpretation, analysis, and critical assessment of arguments and presuppositions, as well as the…Read more

    The purpose of this paper is to analyze what neo-Kantian Heinrich Rickert designates by the term ‘chaos’. I argue that using this term Rickert means infinite manifolds of human life experiences, that philosophers have to convert into ‘cosmos’ of theories by using concept formation. Rickert thinks that cognition orders chaos. I show that Rickert’s version of ‘chaos’ is different from the ones that were expressed by I. Kant, J. G. Herder, F. W. von Schelling, F. von Schlegel, and F. Nietzsche. I a…Read more

    Цілі навчання філософії в США та Україні
    Гілея: Науковий Вісник 1 (126): 341-346. 2017.
    Мета дослідження полягає в отриманні порівняльних даних щодо цілей навчання філософії в Україні та США за допомогою методу компаративного аналізу. Було встановлено, що розуміння цілей навчання філософії в Україні та США суттєво відрізняється в чотирьох пунктах. По-перше, серед даних цілей в Україні домінує здобуття знань, а в США – вмінь. По-друге, в Україні у таких курсах, як «Філософія», «Вступ до філософії» надають перевагу історико-філософському матеріалу, а в США – матеріалу епістемології, …Read more

    Dissertation, Oles Honchar Dnipro National University. 2015.
    After the discoveries of such scholars as J. H. Poincaré, E. N. Lorenz, I. Prigogine, etc. the term ‘chaos’ is used actively by representatives of various scientific fields; however, one important aspect remains uninvestigated: which attitude one should have toward chaotic phenomena. This is a philosophical question and my dissertation aims to find the answer in the history of philosophy, where chaos theme has had its investigators from ancient philosophy to the philosophical theories of the 21s…Read more
