I. A. Ilyin аbout Faith Phenomenon


Introduction. In the context of the psychological analysis of the scientific heritage of the famous Russian philosopher I. A. Ilyin, the problem of experiencing difficult and critical life situations is considered. He believed that such situations are integral companions in human life. Therefore, a person must be ready to meet them. Fostering an active and responsible attitude towards difficult situations is a very important direction in preparing young people for life. Results. The author’s key concepts are the categories „suffering„ and „patience„. He viewed patience as a mental property of a person and as a process or a special activity of the subject, aimed at experiencing a difficult life situation. Methods of strengthening patience and effective ways of experiencing life difficulties are analyzed in detail: inclusion of a difficult situation in a broader life context, communication with loved ones, prayer appeal to God, distracting attention from experience, strengthening faith in yourself, constructive work with your imagination, etc. Discussion and Conclusion.
