Granin, R. S. Nikolay Berdyaevs Existential Eschatology

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2012-11 , pages 63-71.

Resume: The article is devoted to metaphysical, anthropological and existential aspects of Nikolay Berdyaevs eschatology. The author of the article also describes psychological prerequisites for existential issues turning into a philosophers eschatological metaphysics. It is shown that it allows to reveal the fundamental issues of Berdyaevs philosophy: the topics of pre-existence existential freedom, its objectivization into being and the problems of human coming back to this freedom. It is proved for a philosopher eschatology is some kind of a symbol of transcendence of human personality towards existential. The author also describes the eschatological horizon of borderline situations human is faced with such as when he faces death, experiences historical events or a mystical insight or creative act.

Keywords: philosophy, existentialism, metaphysics, eschatology, experience, transcendence, objectivization, freedom, creativity, eternity.
