Philosophy and Religious Studies
The author provides conceptual analysis of phenomenological basis of V. Bibibkhin's hermeneutics of history. Firstly, the phenomenological ontology of time elaborated by Bibikhin is reconstructed. Secondly, Bibikhin's existential analytics and its relation to the hermeneutics of history is examined and compared with M. Heidegger's "Being and Time". Thirdly, the key concepts of Bibikhin's ontology of time and existential analytics are analyzed as the tools of the philosopher's hermeneutics of the Russian and European history as well as the Perestroika and current post-soviet situation. The author demonstrates the significance of Bibikhin's lectures "(It's) Time" for interpretation of the philosopher's hermeneutics of history, his ambivalent attitude to the Perestroika, his position on the question of the relation of Russia to Europe. Conclusion of the thesis sums up the main results of the research.
