There will be 10 classes in this course. For each of them we set a theoretical problem and then offer a few ways of solving it, presented in the works of Russian, Oriental and Western philosophers. We are going to choose pairs of philosophical works representing two respecitve traditions for each problem (Russia-West; Russia-China; West-China) to make the comparative analysis more exact. This all is meant to help students to develop their own way of addressing the problems raised.
Example: We plan to look into the topic "The essence of time and human life: circular and linear history" by addressing China's Yijing and the ideas of a Greek philosopher Heraclitus
