Description

Using the analytic tools of philosophy, methodology, culturology of science and applied philosophy, the author documents an approach enabling one to treat the process of the social and cultural determination of cognition in the unity of its synchronic and diachronic aspects; to justify the culturally produced types of scientific and theoretic activity in the process of its genesis; and to elucidate ways of knowledge-realization in meaningful forms of human vital activity as an intrinsic component of its development. This philosophical text presents the ties of cognition and culture from the viewpoint of "man-world" relations and outlines the role of the personality in the process of knowledge application in society and culture.
