    Phenomenology and Mathematics in Oscar Becker.Jassen Andreev - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (4):412-429.
    According to Becker, the dispute between the intuitionistic (construction as the guarantor of mathematical existence) and the formalistic (non-contradiction as the guarantor of mathematical existence) definition should be resolved in a phenomenological perspective on the problem. The question of the legitimacy of the transfinite should also be resolved in the perspective of a phenomenological constitutive analysis. This analysis provides the key to the problematic of mathematical existence: the result of Becker’s investigations on the logic and ontology of the mathematical is (...)

    Bulgarian Political Culture: Layers Of Formation.Dimitar Gavev - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (4):394-411.
    In the article, I outline the main layers that are fundamental to the construction of Bulgarian political culture. At the beginning of the text, I clarify the concept of political culture. The examined layers are four: geographical, Balkan, Orthodox, and national. These layers, in particular, have a determining influence on the character of Bulgarian political culture in the modern history of Bulgaria.

    How Artificial Intelligence Affects School Education.Vesselina Kachakova - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (4):430-439.
    The text examines how the integration of technology and artificial intelligence into school education fundamentally alters classical notions of the role and functions of education held by representatives of various scientific disciplines. The literature review is structured around the following research questions: 1) How do technology (including artificial intelligence) reshape the sociologist Emile Durkheim's thesis on the authority of the teacher and their role in the socialization of students?; 2) How does the presence of "superintelligent" technology relate to psychologist Abraham (...)

    The Thread, the Loop and the Dependent Origination – In and Beyond Linear Time (Ancient India)].Gergana Ruseva - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (4):373-393.
    The present study traces and analyzes the ideas of linear time as depicted in some of the texts of the Ṛgveda, the Atharvaveda, the Kauṣītakibrāhmaṇa and the Mahābhārata, and as presented in the texts of early Buddhism. From the thread of fate, which is the path of man, narrative, identity, through the web woven by day and night or by the two goddesses of fate, through the web of sacrifice, to dependent origination in early Buddhism, all these images and ideas (...)

    The Narrative of Our Home: Ecology, Philosophy and the Power of Places.Stoyan Stavru - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (4):355-372.
    The article compares Pope Francis's encyclical “LAUDATO SI” (2015) and the report by the Club of Rome, “”ome On!: Capitalism, Short-termism, Population and the Destruction of the Planet” (2018), in how they harness the narrative potential of the concept of home. Both with overtly religious and entirely secular arguments, the narrative of our common home is presented as a possible alternative to the prevailing narrative of growth today. The metaphor of home possesses not only conceptual but also generative power to (...)

    A Brilliant Example of How Philosophy Could Help Solve Some of the Greatest Contemporary Puzzles in Physics. Bozhilov - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (3):322-324.
    This Review of “Suggested Answers to Philosophical Puzzles” by Prof. Anguel S. Stefanov (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2022) concentrates on the astrophysical chapters of the book. Spreading from what is a proper definition of a non-classical scientific theory, to the very nature of spacetime, the puzzle of the origin of the Universe and the appearance of humankind, this fascinating book brings a fresh, deep, and inspirational approach to some of the oldest, yet not resolved puzzles in modern astrophysics.

    Deduction of Categories in a Definition of Art.Ivan Kolev - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (3):270-283.
    In the contemporary literature, the most authoritative on the definition of art is the institutional theory that emerged as a response to the radicalizations in modern art associated with ready-made, pop art, conceptualism and other movements. In familiar versions of institutional theory, the participants in the so-called “artworld” (Arthur Danto's term) are enumerated “rhapsodically”, to use Kant's famous expression. In this context, the article is an attempt to “deduce the categories” by which art is defined, using the categorizing positions of (...)

    Unilinearity and/or Variability. Eastern and Western Concepts of Predestination.Antoaneta Nikolova - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (3):293-311.
    The article is based on the postmodern understanding about the collapse of grand narratives (Lyotard). One of the most significant grand narratives is the narrative about unidirectionality and irreversibility of development. Part of the roots of this narrative can be found in the ancient Greek idea of the inevitability of fate, Ananke, seen primarily as a necessity. In parallel to the ancient Greek thought, however, philosophical ideas in Ancient India and China were also developed. Therefore, the ideas of karma in (...)

    Style and Habitus: Husserl’s Shift From Empathy to Communication.Boris Pantev - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (3):255-269.
    This article explores the key role of “experiential style” (Erfahrungsstil) in Husserl’s account of social habituality. It demonstrates the developmental bridge this concept throws between the distinct intentionalities of empathy and communalization. The importance of Erfahrungsstil in Husserl has largely escaped scholarly attention. I claim, however, that in his later work, it becomes an inherent component to the relational dynamics of intermonadic temporalization, the process which underpins the generative constitution of sociality and opens a possibility for a transcendental phenomenological anthropology, (...)

    The Development of The “Indian Thread” in Europe: Transmission and Reception of Eastern Ideas in the West.Yana Stephanova - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (3):312-321.
    The article examines the earliest evidence of transmission of Indian and Buddhist ideas. The aim is to outline a schematic mental “map” of the first contacts between Ancient Greece and Europe during the early Middle Ages and India in a socio-cultural and religious-philosophical aspect, without claiming absolute comprehensiveness. The historical-philosophical method was used in order to establish the lines of reception, to discover the specifics of the changes during its transmission and, accordingly, the differences that appeared, and to indicate the (...)

    The article examines the dynamics and change of the contemporary public sphere caused by the emergence of digital media and their transformative impact on social life and communicative professions. For this purpose the stages in Jürgen Habermas's theory of the public sphere are traced, and, the main concepts in his two main works, dedicated to the classical public sphere (1962) and the one formed under the influence of digital media (2022), are analysed. The authors examine importance of this transformation on (...)

    Sporting Feminism: Challenges to Philosophy of Gender.Boryana Angelova-Igova - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (2):173-185.
    This paper aim is to compare the different policies regarding women in sports and their criticism from the so-called “sporting feminismˮ. In sports, as a miniature world, we can clearly see the inconsistencies between political goals and the philosophical theories behind them. The study traces chronologically the emergence of different feminist views that emerged in response to existing policies policies purporting to be pro-women.. There are polices for the inclusion of women in the so-called “maleˮ professions, and in sports as (...)

    Introduction to a Depth Ontology of Art].Nikifor Avramov - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (2):214-225.
    I present the concept of creative art as a junction of the fundamental situations that make of art – art. I shed light on the concept through connecting creation, as an impulse corresponding to the concept of φύσις, to art, as a frame corresponding to νόμος and the human form. I demonstrate that the concept, as much as it presupposes a depth ontology (possible as a metaphysically reflected ontology) speaks of categorical dyads, such as those of inner and outer, and (...)

    Irritability (Need) and An-irritability (Fatigue): A Disorder of Rhythms – the Ontological Burnout (Part A).Marina Christodoulou - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (2):203-213.
    In this paper, I propose to bring forward the symptom of fatigue, and/ or exhaustion and burnout, brought up by the social-cultural speeds, rhythms, and acceleration, that manifests not only as quotidian tiredness and fatigue but also as what I will call an ontological burnout, that is, as an exhaustion of being as being. I will also refer to the concept of irritability and how I associate it with need, and to the concept of an-irritability (the absence of irritability) and (...)

    Socio-cultural Nature of the Infodemic and its Appearances under Global Turbulence.Yurii Kalynovskyi, Vasyl Krotiuk, Olga Savchenko & Roman Zorkin - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (2):146-156.
    The article deals with the socio-cultural nature of information and studies its role in increasing global turbulence. Based on the methodological grounds put forward by A. Toffler, S. Moscovici, N. Chomsky, R. Patzlaff, O. Aronson, dialectical and systemic methods, the authors argue that the infodemic roots in stereotypical thinking generated by mass culture, as well as informatization and computerization of social relations. Mass culture contributed to a decrease in the level of critical thinking and caused the so-called ‘clip consciousness’. The (...)

    The Transcendental Entrance into the Post-Global.Valentin Kanawrow - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (2):131-145.
    The post-global is a synthetic project of being with existential vectors. It concerns the essence of human existence. It is here a priori theorized, traced transcendentally, and ontologized in the necessary unity of human experience. The post-global is a cyclical relative ontologem, a transition from a global age to an age that does not have yet a clarified being-generating essence. It represents the immanent decay of a certain age. In this case: the collapse of the ontology of the spirit. That (...)

    Ethical and Legal Problems Related to Subjectivity and Artificial Intelligence].Veselina Slavova & Darina Dimitrova - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (2):186-202.
    AI enters more and more spheres of personal and public life, the topic becomes the object of much discussion. The expanding possibilities of these technologies give rise to the need to introduce ethical and legal regulation in order to control them. Hence the question arises as to how far a system can be considered an autonomous entity, similar to the individual possessing this capability. This article examines the question of whether a system with artificial intelligence can be considered a subject (...)

    Our paper is a comparative analysis of Alexander Dugin's The Fourth Way and Karl Popper's The Open Society. Both works of the two thinkers are viewed as completely concrete (and real) conceptual frameworks, offering two radically different models of perception of the world, the individual and community relations, of the international relations. Our analysis takes into consideration both the internal, that is the “intimate enemies of democracy”, and the new (old) enemies of the open society that “relapse” through the Fourth (...)

    Political Practices and Mechanisms of Influence on Public Perceptions of Science.Svetlana Alexandrova - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (1):42-54.
    The paper focuses on studying public attitudes toward science in Bulgaria and the role of political discourse in shaping public expectations and perceptions. The study's methodology includes an analysis of theoretical concepts and their empirical verification with data from a quantitative Eurobarometer survey (Special Eurobarometer 516) and a discourse analysis of the representation of the scientific sphere in the public debate. The Bulgarian social reality clearly shows a blurring of the role, nature, and participation of science in societal development, the (...)

The authors seek verification of three main hypotheses: (1) a high degree of tolerance among students regarding differences related to ethnicity, religion, race, political preferences, sexual orientation, regardless of their gender and university where they study; (2) supporting tolerance as a core democratic value, along (...)

    Beyond the Snare of Reflection: Blog Theory and Hyperstition.Stefan Goncharov - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (1):70-80.
    The paper enters into a polemical dialogue with the american theorist Jodi Dean and her attempts to critically examine the blogosphere through the prism of psychoanalysis. To this end, the text analyses whether user-generated content on the internet can produce meaningful and epistemologically sustainable “social enclaves”, informal communities and institutions, or whether it operates more as a series of recursive and increasingly meaningless quasi-messages. While attempting to consider blogging as both a constructive practice and a pathology, the text develops the (...)

    The Human Being as Past (Realliteratur and Techniques of Forgetting after the Death of Avant-garde).Maria Kalinova - 2023 - Filosofiya-Philosophy 32 (1):109-116.
    The review examines the trilogy about time of VBV, which includes the poetic editions „Th:is.” (2000), “Will:” (2011) and “:was...” (2022), with the emphasis being the last volume, which appeared at the end of the past year. VBV's poetic texts are read through his ideas about “realliteratur” and the mediamarket “normalization” of modern culture, unfolded in a number of his theoretical observations. At the border between the poetic and the philosophical, at the point of coincidence and exchange between the two (...)

Major findings in this field are presented, which are problematized first of all from the point of view of the erosion of morality through the instrumentalization of man and his body, through the undermining of the principles of egalitarianism and reciprocity in modern Western societies and through the hypothesis that the enhancement of human corporeality will lead to unpredictable answers to the question (...)
