On June 20, 2022, Diana Regulskaya, a first-year postgraduate student of the Postgraduate School of Philosophical Sciences of the NRU HSE made a report
Boris Petrovich Vysheslavtsev is a thinker in the tradition of Russian religious philosophy of the Silver Age. One of the main themes of his philosophy was the rethinking of the Orthodox patristic heritage in the spirit of a new era of psychoanalytic theory. Vysheslavtsev adapts the terminological apparatus of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung to his religious and philosophical system, thereby spiritualizing and endowing the discoveries of the psychoanalytic school with a Christian meaning. The dialogue of two traditions within a single structure allows Vysheslavtsev to fully reveal his philosophical intuitions and form an idea of the role of love in the spiritual life of a person.
