I.A. Mironenko’s Report at the Seminar "West and the East: Universalism of Culture"
On June 2 within the framework of the regular seminar of the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European dialogue Irina Anatolyevna Mironenko, a professor of St. Petersburg State University, made a report.
I.A. Mironenko presented her report on the topic: "Implicit Anthropology of the Russian Social and Humanitarian Science."
The main theses of the report are the following: Science is one of the forms of social consciousness and culture. Like any other form of culture, science reflects features of the community of people, which it is derived from. With regard to social and humanitarian science, it can be said that it is doubly culturally conditioned: both in relation to reality, directly accessible to the researcher, and in relation to his/her internal, including implicit, dispositions.
In the modern era, the problem of the place and significance of Russian social and humanitarian science in the context of world science is the problem of its future, which is rooted in the past, but is being solved today. Entering into a single global context requires the correlation of not only explicit postulates and conceptual constructions of national schools but also implicit grounds that could have remained hidden during the period of relatively isolated development.
