Confucianism in medieval Vietnam

Confucianism - began spreading due to military expansion, it was gradually adapted to local conditions and has acquired a dominant role in the ideological system of governance of the country, it became one of the ideological sources of the philosophy and culture of Vietnam. The thesis formed the conclusion that the moral and ethical content of Confucianism in Vietnam rethinks the medieval; this represented a new paradigm that is significantly different from the previous china. It mostly discusses the "loyalty", "filial piety", "obligation", and rarely - the problem of discharge of metaphysics and abstract concepts. For Vietnamese, patriotism was the main moral values that define the process of perception of Confucianism, its assimilation and adaptation. The development of Confucian doctrine in Vietnam has not resulted in any new schools, prominent scientist nor extensional theoretical works; the increasing focus on the issues of pragmatic was of much the eclectic nature. The role of Confucianism extent spread and impact, whether positive or negative identified the needs and challenges of historical development. His principles still exist today in all social relations in behavior between people. In order to successfully develop and modernize the country, Vietnam should abandon that which hinders the development of Confucianism and encourage that which helps to build progressive social and economic relations.

The thesis is devoted to philosophical study of the concept of archetype as a part of the cultural heritage of humanity. It describes the evolution of the concepts of the archetype and philosophical approaches to this phenomenon. The conclusion is made about the heuristic potential of the archetypal reality for the evolution of consciousness of a person, which requires extension of the methodology of the study of archetypes, and the synthesis of Eastern and Western philosophical ideas on the nature of archetypes. In the thesis there is given the analysis of universality, specificity and uniqueness of archetypal images and symbols of Russian culture. The author distinguishes the most significant archetypes for the development of consciousness of the individual.

The Philosophy of Transforming Knowledge of P. Florensky and Vyach. Ivanov in the Context of the Theory of All-Unity by Vl. Solovyov

The research deals with comparative analysis of the types of transforming (theurgic) human activities aimed at the consolidation of the empirical and noumenal reality in the works of Russian philosophers, Vladimir Solovyov, Pavel Florensky and Russian poet-symbolist, Vyacheslav Ivanov. As a theoretical framework for the research was taken Solovyov’s concept of All-Unity. The analysis of the conceptual foundations of All-unity identified one of its main theoretical subjects as the dialectical identity and difference between the empirical and noumenal worlds and the resulting pragmatism of their reintegration, called Theurgy. I contend that the mentioned thinkers considered the Theurgy as the transformation of the empirical reality and its reintegration into the world of All-Unity being not only the essence of the global development of the world as a whole, but the meaningful and vital task of every individual. I research and analyze the specific forms of individual Theurgy available to man: love and art at Vl. Solovyov, a genuine process of knowledge of reality at P. Florensky, a process of self-discovery and creation of a new type of society at Vyach. Ivanov.
