The Dramatism of the Being, Dialogues with the Past about the Future
The dramatism of the being is a general and universal quality of the human life, its original essence and inevitable result. The comprehension of this dramatism is the quintessence of all philosiphical searchings and entire humanology. The nature of these searchings is the subject of the book, written in the form of interconnected philosophical and socio-pedagogical essays,
The essence of the first dialogue ("The being of an individual - is it a disarming evil or a great blessing ?") is that one cannot return the past and escape the future. Resulting from this is the universal acceptance of the human unity before the non-being. It is this unity that makes thinkers of different epochs and peoples seek an answer to the sacramental question about the purport of life irrespective of the scantiness of the individium existence.
The analysis of various concepts of the purport of being gives grounds to determine the check-points of the being and its vectors making possible to comprehend the ambivalence of the good and evil in our life and thus to work out a universal socio-pedagogical pattern, of human behaviour. It is based on the concept of the non-violent world which is only possible if the check-points of the being (human unity, freedom of choice, need an ideal basis for vital activity) are harmonized with vectors of individual behaviour (the comprehension of existence of another person as the condition of your own existence, categorical imperative, continuous perfection and self-perfection).
The second dialogue ("Estrangement - traditional and sudden") is about the estrangement of personality in the modern world. Proceeding from the understanding of personality in modern hominization theory (A.Shveitser, V.Vernadsky, Geyar de Shardin) the author describes various socio-cultural types of human association, their positive and negative impact on the Individual freedom. In this connection the author gives interpretation of culture as "a progress of progresses", its role in modern civilization. .
In the third chapter ("Illusiveness of the ideal or chasing the phantoms of imagination") the author presents his interpretation of the traditional issue of the ideal as a source of dramatism. On the basis of the analysis of the bibliography of the issue made from philosophical and historical angle the author bases the concept of ideal as a phantom of imagination, a source of dramatic strain, dramatic situations, sometimes insoluble in principle. He demonstrates that any ideal, even the moat attractive one, is uthopian in its nature and thus cannot have any operational importance for an individuum. The ideal, what is more, always turns out to be a dogmatic postulate, that makes possible to explain the attractiveness of the postulates alien to the free will of an individual and external to his being.
In the fourth dialogue ("Equality - myth or reality") the author does socio-pedagogical analysis of traditional and new uthopeas about universal equality as well as dramatic situations in the fortune of an individual, personality and socium, caused by them. According to the author acceptance of the universal role of abilities and their real inequality allows not only to reveal the deep sources of dramatism but also to understand the prospect of creation for the harmonious nonviolent world. It is a rational way of overcoming excessive social ambitions and groundless claims, perfection and self-perfection of an individual, the way of the new, common to all mankind civilization.
Modern didactic principles of social pedagogy, resulting from understanding of the dramatism of being of the human as a transient and eternal creature - this is the subject of analysis of the final essays, interpreting two ways of harmonization of the human and the world, understanding of the new dramatism of the civilization of the third millennium A.D. The author comes to the conclusion about the imaginary character of the antithesis of the concepts of "human revolution" and "social pedagogy"; the antithesis, appeared in the result of the consciousness gap of humanity of the XX century. The overcoming of this gap - is the fundamental precondition of realisation in the process of education of the new generations of the human race of the ideas of the new thinking, which gained a foothold due to the moral exploit of such humanists as Leo Tolstoy and Feyodor Dostoevsky, Bertran Russel and Albert Einstein, Geyar de Shardin and Albert Shveitser, John Dui and Vladimir Vernadsky.
