Epistemic and Instrumental Rationality

Karpovitch V. N.
Institute of philosophy and law SB RAS, Novosibirsk
Pages: 10-14

Abstract >>
This paper explores the relationship between epistemic and instrumental rationality in the methodology of science. Instrumental rationality concerns the means and ends of an action, epistemic rationality deals with the normativity of the rules of inference.
There are many attempts to describe epistemic rationality as merely a kind of instrumental, as an instrumental rationality in service of cognitive or epistemic goals. The paper explores the instrumentalist conception of epistemic rationality, its philosophical importance, its plausibility and defensibility. The arguments of the proponents of the instrumentalist conception are compared to the attempts to naturalize moral judgments in philosophical ethics.

The Hippolytan Corpus. The Question of its Authorship and Provenance.

Afonasin E. V.
Institute of philosophy and law SB RAS, Novosibirsk
Pages: 33-37

Abstract >>
Hippolytus has long been considered an early Christian martyr, bishop of Rome, even an anti-pope, and a prolific writer, who left to the posterity a large corpus of writings of various nature. Some of these writings are now extant in their entirety or in a fragmented form; others have recently been recovered or identified as Hippolytan. It is clear, however, that the state of affairs is hardly that simple and is poorly supported by the sources. As a result, a number of authorship and provenance hypotheses have been introduced to solve the problem. Who was Hippolytus and in which early Christian community did he flourish? The paper comments upon and responds to the recent advances to the problem, as outlined in Cerrato J.A. Hippolytus between East and West. The Commentaries and the Provenance of the Corpus. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002.

Property Right to Natural Resources as a Factor of Sustainable Development

Markov Y. G.
Institute of philosophy and law SB RAS, Novosibirsk
Pages: 99-103

Abstract >>
The author analyses legal and economic aspects of the concept of property in relation to natural resources. It is shown that the interpretation of this concept in jurisprudence loses sight of the very sources of income, including natural rent. However, by its very essence, the latter is a public good belonging, on equal terms, to all members of society. The author underlines the importance of the transition to the rent principle of taxation which should be complemented by the principle of common property of the citizens of Russia to natural resources (property of the whole people). It is proposed to single out common joint ownership and common share (civil) types of property. This should allow making optimal use of natural rent which would be used for Russia
