Zakharov N. V. Presenting Shakespeare’s Hamlet to the Non-English Major Students

In this rather short informal essay I will share my experience of working within small groups of non-English major audience (Russian and Finnish non-English native speaking students).


Lukov Vl. A. Russia and Europe: Intercultural Dialogue in the Mutual Repercussion of Literatures

The research “Russia and Europe: Intercultural Dialogue in the Mutual Repercussion of Literatures” (RFH, grant №06-04-00578а) was conducted in 2006–2008.


Bartoshevich Aleksey V. Stratford Theatre of Our Time: Is Shakespeare for Tourists?

The renovation of the theatre in Stratford is proceeding, with all the disastrous effects of such undertakings. As the old saying goes, two removals are as bad as a fire, however well-intentioned and scrupulous the renovation plans are. Or rather, it should be called a reconstruction and through overhauling. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre is lying in ruins, like another Coventry. Painful it is to see today’s swans of the Avon wandering up and down the river in search of feeding hands. The construction fences ban visitors.


Lukov Vl. A. , Zakharov N. V., Gaydin B. N. The New Information Technologies and Philological Sciences: the Complex Approach to the Higher Education

“The Information and Research Database «Russian Shakespeare»” includes the publication of the translations of the Shakespeare’s works in the Russian language, free arrangements and alterations of his works, the publication of critical works and studies on general questions of the Shakespeare’s creative works, the problem of authorship, the history of Shakespeare studies, the separate works of great playwrights, their theatrical and cinematographic versions.


Baldwin T. W. Shakespeare’s Small Latine And Lesse Greeke

My ultimate objective is to write on 'The Evolution of William Shakespeare' in the sense of how under the existing circumstances he worked himself out. For such an undertaking, it is necessary to know as much as possible of the formal education to which he was subjected, not only directly, but also indirectly through absorption from others. Whether or not Shakspere ever spent a single day in petty or grammar school, nonetheless petty and grammar school were a powerful shaping influence upon him, as they were, and were planned to be, upon the whole society of his day. Directly and through others these instruments would help to mould Shakspere. How much of himself did Shakspere realize from them?


Tishchenko P. D. Genomics: New Science in the New Cultural Situation

Genomics is a prototype of the coming "neo-Vesalian" biomedicine and health care of the near future. As Victor McKusik writes: "Specialists in all medical areas will approach the study of their most puzzling diseases by first mapping the genes responsible for them. Thus, just as Vesalius’s anatomical text of 1543 formed the basis for the physiology of William Harvey (1628) and the morbid anatomy of Morgagni (1761), gene mapping is having a widely pervasive influence on medicine". From this point of view genomics means new imaginative and pragmatic "localization" of human problems.


Tishchenko P., Yudin B. Moral Status of Fetuses in Russia

This article was written an account of a scandal in Russia over the use of fetal tissue for experimentation and for profit. The authors discuss the scandal in the context of present Russian medical practice, and of the role of the National Committee on Bioethics.


Tishchenko P. D. Corruption: the Russian Experience

Is corruption a necessary part of today's health care system in Russia? That is one of the questions raised in the first paper in the September 1996 Review. The second item is also intended to provoke discussion, being a draft Bill to permit physician assisted suicide. It was drafted by the Voluntary Euthanasia Society who would welcome comments on it. The section ends with summaries of empirical studies.


Tishchenko P. D. , Yudin B. G. Toward a Bioethics in Post-communist Russia

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the ethical commitment reflected in the Soviet Oath no longer seemed appropriate. The changes in health care and health care ethics were rapid and dramatic. The Russians adopted a new ethic patterned closely after the Hippocratic Oath. The realities of Russian life have, however, become complex and the ethical positions adopted are similarly complex.


Tishchenko P. D. Resurrection of the Hippocratic Oath in Russia

I graduated from medical school in 1972. According to orders signed at the Kremlin by the Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, I was obliged, along with every graduating medical student, to swear to a new professional code, "The Oath of the Soviet Physicians." This was the second year the oath was used.


Tishchenko P. D. The Individual and Healthcare in the New Russia

The healthcare system in the new Russia is in an agonizing flux of political, economic, and ideological turmoil. The individual in this system, comfortable with the long-established policies of the former Soviet system, is now confronted with instability, rapid change, and an uncertain future.


Zakharov N. Puškin ja Shakespeare: Kulttuurien Dialogi

Työn aiheena on Puškin ja Shakespeare, erityisesti Shakespearen vaikutus venäläisen runoilijan tuotantoon, minkä merkitystä ja syvyyttä työssä tarkastellaan.


Tishchenko P. D. The Goals of Moral Reflection

In attempting to impose order on the moral relationships in medical practice, medical ethics is in danger of suppressing the authentic values of practitioners and patients alike. Moreover medical ethics can be paternalistic, first inciting a perceived need for "professional" frameworks of moral analysis then supplying such frameworks with­out regard for their effects on actual practice, such as a dependence on the explana­tory rhetoric of medical ethical analysis, ironically based on a highly artificial notion of "autonomy," and on the reduction of personal moral deliberation to the mere fol­lowing of protocols and the filling out of forms.


Yudin B. G. A Historical and Ethical Examination of the Khabarovsk War Crimes Trial

A trial of Japanese biowarfare scientists took place in Khabarovsk, in the Russian Far East, in December 25-30, 1949. 12 Japanese military were accused in the manufacture and use of bacteriological weapons during World War Two.


Kofler W. Sechenov Lecture 2004

Part A deals with the Sechenov and his links to and compatibilities with the “extended view”. Part B proposes a draft of a blueprint of a model for the evolutionary process starting with the very early beginning up to the 21st century. This model seems to be compatible with the different sectoral views of parts of this process, which is explained by different “natural” and “non-natural sciences”.


Yudin B. G. Conceiving of Human Life: Values of Preservation vs. Values of Change

In this article I am going to trace back some developments in mutual relations between culture, on one side, and scientific and technological advances, on the other side. To my mind, these observations could help to us to understand some aspects of current debates on goals, possibilities and limitations of extensive use of biological and medical sciences for the sake of preserving, restoring, prolonging, reconstructing or even constructing anew inpidual human existence.


Tishchenko P. D. Dimensions of Cultural Diversity of Medical Ethics

The title of my article carries a significant theoretical difficulty. In what sense can we speak about cultural diversity and "ethics"? In the work "Modernity – An Incomplete Project" Habermas recalls the idea of Max Weber fundamental to this topic who "characterised cultural modernity as the separation of substantive reason expressed in religion and metaphysics into three autonomous spheres. They are: science, morality, and art".


Belknap R. Shakespeare and the Possessed

Most generations and most critical communities have singled out four of Shakespeare's and four of Dostoevsky's works as the greatest among the dozens they wrote. All eight explore the psychological, political, and religious implications of murder, but in four very different ways.


Yudin B. G. Interrelations Between Bioethics and Ethics of Biotechnology

To discuss interrelations of bioethics with ethics of biotechnology we need first of all to draw distinction between these two fields. Yet it is not so easy to make such distinction, first of all because there is no any generally accepted understanding of either field or ethical concern.


Zohrab I. New Zealand Education in the 21st Century

The New Zealand tertiary institutions, which include both universities and polytechnics, provide a relatively low cost, generally high quality, English-language education in a modest environment. Overseas student fees for undergraduate and masters level courses are typically of the order of $20,000 - $30,000 NZ ($12,000-$18,000 US) per year of full-time study.


Lukov Val. A. , Lukov Vl. A. Thesaurus Approach in the Humanities

The humanities are being subjectivated and straying from the ideal of science as the objective knowledge increasingly.


Belknap Robert L. The University Seminars at Columbia University

  The University Seminars are part of an enterprise to which Columbia University devotes unique attention, the education of its own professors.  Almost a century ago, Columbia invented a core curriculum which forces a thousand undergraduates to read a translation of the same major classic in the same week, and read it well enough to talk about it in a small class, since there are no lectures in these courses.  Besides changing the conversations in the dormitories where these students live, these core courses force the fifty professors, assistant professors and graduate students who teach them to read the same book actively.  Slavists who have had to teach Homer, Plato, and Dante a few times in such a course, and have discussed them with their colleagues in other departments, have received an education few other Slavists have; and the classicists and philosophers forced to discuss Dostoevsky have a symmetrical experience.
