  1. Science Studies in Russia and in the West.Lyudmila A. Markova - 2017 - Social Epistemology 31 (1):38-50.
    In Russia, works on the philosophy of scientific knowledge formed the basis of science studies. In the West, the priority in the discussion regarding science studies was given to sociology. Over time, the problematic of the philosophical and sociological trends moved closer and the border between them shifted.

  2. Social Philosophy of Science: Unexpected Russian Roots.Lyudmila A. Mikeshina - 2017 - Social Epistemology 31 (1):25-37.

    Modern epistemology adopted the idea of historicism, of the historicity of knowledge and the self-consciousness of the cognizer.

  4. The Moscow Methodological Circle: Its Main Ideas and Evolution.Vadim M. Rozin - 2017 - Social Epistemology 31 (1):78-92.
    This article examines the evolution of Russian methodological thought, namely, a philosophical school known as the Moscow Methodological Circle. The paper analyzes the transition from the study of thought during the first stage, to the institutionalization of thought during the second. In the first stage, thought was viewed primarily from a semiotic and historical standpoint, whereas the aim in the second stage was to construct a theory of activity. Here, thought was treated as a type of activity and termed “methodological (...)
