Descriptive Model of Regional Philosophies on the Example of the Study of Kazan Philosophy of the XIX–XX centuries


Introduction. The article discusses a descriptive model of regional philosophies on the example of the study of Kazan philosophy of the period XIX – early XX centuries. Of particular interest is the problem of describing regional philosophical systems, schools, communities, study of their structures, “mentalities” and the figures of the subjectivity of scientists, which is still little disclosed in the field of internal regional studies in Russia. According to the authors of the publication the philosophical “space” of the region can be studied both from the perspective of history, cultural studies, regional studies, regional studies, and from the perspective of sociology and philosophy itself. Materials and Methods. The sociological analysis of “regional philosophies” by R. Collins, which has significant research potential and can be used not only in the study of national/regional science, but is applicable primarily to describe the philosophical community, as the definition of structure and standards of activity of the philosophical community is largely possible due to the analysis of the influence of the social environment on the formation of philosophical views of man and the dissemination of philosophical ideas in whole. Results. The application of the sociological approach of R. Collins to develop the parameters of the descriptive model of philosophical thought in Kazan and the analysis of philosophical concepts of regional scientists revealed the “spheres of influence” and features of social networks of representatives of this regional intellectual community, thereby expanding the “colorful palette” for its description in the direction of the search for self-identity. The parameters of the model of the sociological description of “network schemes” of representatives of philosophical thought of Kazan of the XIX–XX centuries were developed and their philosophical concepts. Discussion and Conclusions. It is worth counting on a significant shift in research interest in the direction of the transition from the personal biographical data of a particular thinker in the historical era to a comprehensive analysis of scientific communities, taking into account the interaction of social, historical, economic, political and regional factors that influence the formation of the intellectual and creative life of the scientific community.

Keywords: history of Russian philosophy, history of Kazan philosophy, Kazan philosophical thought, sociology of philosophies, regional philosophy, scientific schools of philosophy.
