The Problem of Man Designing

In this article an opportunity to present medicine in an unusual way is discussed, i. e. as a sphere of activity, in which one follows not so much as a norm, rather than a project. Concepts, norms, and project in this case relate to human individual. This sets a specific value context of the raised problem discussion on man designing.

Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology of Ultra-low Doses of Antibodies

Biological properties of ultra-low doses of antibodies to endogenous regulators of functions were revealed and evaluated in the study. Drugs containing ultra-low doses of antibodies were developed; they proved to be highly effective and low-toxic. Preclinical studies demonstrated the efficacy of ultra-low doses of antibodies in the treatment of experimental pathologies in animals that is comparable with standard comparators; besides no adverse events were registered. Studies of toxicity proved that novel drugs are highly safe and non-toxic. The efficacy and safety of these drugs were confirmed in clinical studies.

Human Being Is a Guided Biocomputer

The author analyses the concept based on the notion that a human being is a very complex computer which can be governed the same way as a technical one. Examples are presented to illustrate the ways of applied use of developed interface analogs «human braincomputer» and fundamental abilities of metaprogramming of human behavior and consciousness which is necessary to take into consideration while developing programs of informational safety for some nations and humanity as a whole.

Science in Humanitarian University: Formation of Tradition

The author tried to substantiate the necessity of full perception of the mission of humanitarian higher education. Humanitarian Institutions ought to be regarded as a special object in educational environment where philosophers methodologists, sociologists, culturologists, specialists of higher education should be envolved. The scientific project of fundamental and qualitative transformation of humanitarian education aimed at the engagement into civilized dynamics with orientation on optimization of «benefit» for Russia could become the main ground, the source of planning and building the fields of problems for scientific investigations in a humanitarian institution.

At the Bottom of the Caspian Sea the Unknown Fortress Has Been Found Out

Investigation of shelf of Absheron peninsula using space photographs allowed scientists to find an extraordinary structure on the bottom of Caspian sea, near the eastern boundaries of Absheron peninsula i.e. Shikhov baybar and the shape of this structure reminded the ruins of an ancient fortress. Authors temporarily titled this structure as «Zyrinskaya fortress». Special filters providing for viewing of the space photograph in various spectral ranges have been used in order to improve visual capacity of the obtained picture. Authors managed to some extent to get common understanding of possible spatial design of a number of components of the ancient fortress using methods of threedimensional graphics. Implementation of special software allowed for identification of precise parameters of Zyrinskaya fortress. The length of fortress equals to 316 meters, and the width of fortress equals to 140 meters. Perimeter of exterior walls of the fortress amounts to 823 meters. The area of interior part of the fortress equals to 38960 square meters. Diameter of semicircular interior structures equals to 21—25 meters. Thickness of external walls is equal 2—2,5 meters.

On Harmony of the Universe

For the first time a definition of harmony was formulated as a logic identity of opposites as well as a mathematical form of 3numerical laws: 1. qualitative symmetry; 2. broken symmetry; 3. golden section. The force of these laws was found in musical compositions, musical scales, Mendeleev periodical tables, planetary distances, demography, genetics, physics, mathematics, heliobiology, human history and the like. Approximately 85%of numbers obtained with striking accuracy correspond to the mentioned numerical laws confirming the harmony as a common law of the Universe the law of the Whole.

Information Communication Dynamics in Contemporary Society

Sharp speeding-up of technical progress, characteristic for the XX — beginning of XXI, shows its worth in the field of society informatization. Here the dynamics of quantitative and qualitative increase has an exponent form with the exponent factor essentially exceeds similar factors in other branches of science, engineering and common production.

Infographics — Method and Means of Forming and Scientific Research of Functional Systems

The term «infographics» is made of adding the terms «information» and «graphing». The latter was introduced into circulation in 1940 by the Russian researcher L. A. Byzov and generalises all particular terms (drawing, sketching, reproduction, copying, visualisation, etc.) concerning graphic depiction of information by man, computer software or its combination. The notion «infographics» has several definitions: a scientific-practical discipline; a sphere of social consciousness (philosophy, methodology or science); a trend in cybernetics and informatics; a general theoretic science on the life cycle of a document in reprographics; a methodological foundation of designing systems and consulting technical means of image visualisation in informational technologies; a discipline in engineering-technical education; a technology of actions and a trend of thought (worldview) of engineer and researcher.

The Ignorabimus-Paradigm and Its Relevance for Contemporary Science

Within this comment on the so-called «Ignorabimus-paradigm», one of the most important European scientific disputes about epistemological and ontological positions and basic methodologies in history, we will try to point out the past and the contemporary relevance of different self-conceptions and selfunderstandings of modern science and the worrying growing gap between natural and nonnatural sciences. Basic conceptions on how research can and should be done have been established in context with the Ignorabimus discussions and are still shaping our scientific community nowadays. Especially in natural sciences new discoveries and research results, but also a feeling of limitation due to extreme sectoral specialization cause again questions to be raised about approaches, techniques and our own subjectivity. Two major different ways of facing these questions adequately seem to be possible: To pay no attention to any question that goes beyond the own field of research assures less vulnerability and risks but may lead to non-causal explanations and the need to ignore knowingly facts. The other way means to strike out in new directions, to accept linguistic, methodological and other severe differences as well as harsh critique and to really watch out for interdisciplinary research approaches. A glance at the almost forgotten historic controversies following the postulations of Du Bois-Reymond about blind spots and black boxes in science may help us to settle our own scientific self-understanding.

The Cult of Shakespeare as a Socio-Cultural Phenomenon

The present article is devoted to consideration of a key phenomenon in the evolution of the European civilization terminologically nominated as «The Cult of Shakespeare». The authors give the definition to this phenomenon and consider it as a «philological concept». Applying the thesaurus approach the authors come to a conclusion that since the XVIII century «the Cult of Shakespeare» had set the bases to a number of the all-European cultural phenomena that found their expression in literature, music, fine arts and cinema.

Thesauruses and Net Society

In this article the thesaurus concept that is being developed in a number of the author\'s works (see: Herald of the Russian Section of the IAS. 2006. №1) is applied to interpretation of new phenomena of the humanitarian knowledge organization, in which the impact of net society is playing the enhanced role more and more.

Cosmizm in Vernadsky Concept of Noosphere

The history of «noosphere\'s» idea and it\'s relationship with notion of cosmizm are shortly examined in this article. The main V. I. Vernadsky role in the working out of the noospheric concept\'s essence is shown, though the term of «noosphere» was introduced by P. Teilhard de Chardin and E. Le Roy. They were listeners of Vernadsky\'s lectures in Paris (1923—1924) about concept of biosphere and role of man activity in transformation of biosphere to new nowadays condition.
