DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-14-18
The archaeographic work aims to present the struggle of the White Army command in the East with the transitions of
individual servicemen and entire units to the enemy at the end of June – beginning of July 1919 by the example of two
orders of the commander of the 11th Yaitsky Corps of the Southern Army. These newly published documents, revealed
in the funds of the Russian State Military Archive, reveal the White command’s understanding of the nature of this
negative phenomenon and the logic of combating it. The theoretical basis of the study is the combination of the principle
of consistency and an anthropological approach; this made it possible to present the published sources as part of
counterintelligence measures in the white army, linking their appearance with specific personalities.

Development of means of combating armored vehicles at the forefront of defense. The first half of
the 1930s. Based on the materials of the Soviet military press
DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-31-38
In the article on the materials of the military press of the first half of the 1930s. the author analyzes the change in views on the
fight against armored vehicles in the specified period. The author considers the main addition and alternatives to anti-tank
guns, which were popular with military theorists considering the issues of countering armored vehicles at a distance of up to
a kilometer. In the course of his work, the author considers proposals on the tactical and technical aspects of using various
types of grenades against armored vehicles, mines, bi-calibre artillery system, heavy machine guns, automatic guns received
from both foreign and domestic experts. As a result of the study, the author comes to the conclusion that in the USSR in the
first half of the 1930s. the military leadership quickly came to the conclusion that anti-tank guns were needed to fight tanks,
and grenades and mines could play a very limited role in the fight against armored vehicles. While outside the USSR, heavy
machine guns, automatic guns, field artillery guns continued to be considered as anti-tank weapons. Thus, we can say that
in the USSR the conceptual awareness of the vector of counteraction to armored vehicles occurred earlier than in Germany,
France, the British Empire, the United States of America and Poland.

Keywords: heavy machine gun, autocannon, mine, grenade, bi-calibre artillery system, Interbellum, foreign experience.

Imperial Russian Military Historical Society. The author analyzed the key works of pre-revolutionary, Soviet, post- Soviet
historiography. The presented historiographic review is built according to the chronological principle. The author comes to the
conclusion that the first attempts to comprehend the activities of the Imperial Russian Military Historical Society were carried
out even before the revolution of 1917, but only from the 1940s. laid the foundation for studying its history. It is concluded
that the interest of modern researchers is fragmentary and is more focused on studying the activities of local departments
and the organizational structure of society. A promising direction for further research is the study of the history of this
association of military historians in the context of the interdisciplinary paradigm «Memory studies», which allows us to
consider the Imperial Russian Military Historical Society as one of the most important actors influencing the formation of
historical memory at the beginning of the 20th century.

Patriotic War

The article reveals the features of catering in the Ishim district of the Omsk region during the Great Patriotic War. The author
considers the issue of supplying the inhabitants of the home front with food products, as well as models of women’s way out of
the situation of the food crisis. The source base on this topic includes the materials of the Ishim archive, as well as materials
of oral history in the form of memoirs of contemporaries. Among the office documentation stored in the Ishim archive, reports
and minutes of meetings of the City Council of People’s Deputies, which reflect the official level of perception of everyday
problems, are of particular interest. Sources of personal origin provide an opportunity to more deeply understand events at the
individual level. The periodical press presented by the local newspaper «Hammer and Sickle» helps to reconstruct the picture
of everyday life of the Ishim people during the Great Patriotic War. Despite the subjectivity of the sources, based on the
memories of the participants in the events, one can draw up a single picture of everyday life, identify the features of this period.

history are used. The author comes to the conclusion that the everyday life of citizens during the Great Patriotic War has been
insufficiently studied. The article focuses on catering in the city of Ishim, and also shows the models of the population’s way
out of the food crisis situation. In addition, the article reveals the issue of the influence of the natural-geographical factor on the
daily life of the population of the Ishim region.

The critique of the theory of logical causality
DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-96-100
One of the solutions to Bernardete’s paradox and a number of analogous paradoxes is based on the idea that there is a special
type of causality — logical causality. This solution was proposed by Hawthorne and modified by Uzquiano. The paper presents
a criticism on it. I put forward objections against Uzquiano’s modification of Hawthorne theory as well as against the very idea of
logical causality. The conclusion is to the effect that, unless other reasons for the idea of logical causality are present, this idea
either is trivial or lacks sufficient reason.

Keywords: Bernardete’s paradox, Zeno phenomenon, Zeno effect, logical causality, logical consequence.

Considerable characteristic of second plan of the history of Aristotelian society    
DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-101-108
The article presents a study of the first stage of the formation of the Aristotelian Society. Unlike works devoted to the development
and study of the meaning of the Society in the general historical and philosophical context, in this article the focus is on the group
of scholars and amateurs left without close attention, which formed its ‘network’ basis. The qualitative growth of the membership
of the Society, the leveling of the most negative aspects of the manifestation of the Matthew effect, strong local traditions — all
these factors played an important role in the history of the development of the Society.

Keywords: Aristotelian Society, philosophical and scientific communities, R. Collins’ theory of intellectual networks,
R. Merton’s sociology of scientific communities, Matthew effect.

Russell and Wittgenstein: apprenticeship and other ‘crossings’
DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-109-114
The article is devoted to the analysis of the traditional interpretation for the development of personal and intellectual relations
between Russell and Wittgenstein in the light of the publication of materials from the Russell Archive. The mythology of the
traditional interpretation of the development and collaboration of Wittgenstein and Russell is demonstrated and criticized. A more
complex trajectory of the development of these relations is shown, which does not correspond to the traditional interpretation,
according to which this development led to a kind of intellectual and creative surrender of Russell to his former student.

Keywords: B. Russell, L. Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, early analytic philosophy.

Wittgenstein’s Tractarian Apprenticeship / trans. from Engl. V. V. Tselishchev
DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-115-129
The years since the publication of Wittgenstein’s Tractatus have produced a good many interpretations of its central tenets.
Time has produced something of a consensus concerning the nature of the Tractarian criticisms of Russell’s philosophy.
Recent work on Russell’s philosophy of logic reveals, however, that the agreed account of Tractarian criticisms relies upon
characterizing Russell with positions he did not hold.

Keywords: B. Russell, L. Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, early analytic philosophy.

Perspectives for philosophy of the body and the new realism
DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-130-138
The article presents a commentary on the article by Mario Teodoro Ramirez «The Body by Itself. From the Phenomenology
of the Body to an Ontology of the Embodied Self», in which he tries to declare an attempt to build a realism based on a
correctly rethought philosophy of the body. It allows building a new type of realistic ontology of the embodied subject.
Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Jean-Luc Nancy’s approaches to corporeality and flesh are seen by Ramirez as the most
important steps in the so-called the ‘Corporal Turn’ and laying the conceptual foundation of the ontology of New Realism.

Keywords: correlationism, realism, object, subject, body, flesh, corpus.

The body by itself. From the phenomenology of the body to an ontology of the embodied
self / trans. from Span. А. К. Zhaparova
DOI: 10.25206/2542-0488-2022-7-4-139-147
This article analyzes the «corporal turn» of Philosophy in XX Century. It parts from the revaluation of the body undertaken by
Nietzsche against a tradition that probably emphasized too much the spirituality of the soul, ripping it from the body. A properly
thought «Philosophy of the body» could bring back that reality which modern criticism has driven so far away. To offer a way
out of universal solipsism, it is necessary a Philosophy of the body capable of rethinking Realism. Merlau- Ponty and Jean-Luc
Nancy’s approaches to a Philosophy of corporality and of flesh are presented, then. The next section deals with the
consequences of the corporal turn of Philosophy in relation to Ontology: it shows the way from the body to Being. The exemplar
exteriority with which Nancy defines the body allows us to calibrate — in the sense of an immanent Philosophy which is not done,
closed or definite — an atheism free from naïve and a kind of Ontological Realism free from abstractions or dogmatism. To close
the cycle, «New Realism» approach, defended by Markus Gabril, Ferraris and Harman, amongst others, is presented
and defended. The intention of this article is to present a way in which it is possible to formulate a new Ontology, a new 
conception of Being and existence, a realistic, materialistic ontology of the corporal being inasmuch the extra-corporal being.

Keywords: body, flesh, Philosophy of corporality, Materialism, New Realism.
