Omelchuk, R. K. Aleksey Fedorovich Losev: Life in Myth

Abstract: The article studies some aspects of Aleksey Fedorovich Losevs philosophical legacy. Behind his complicated terminology and conceptual framework, today we can very well see faith being the theme line in all his works although it was deliberately hidden from the Soviet censors. The article views the terms of Name, Myth and Truth viewed altogether as a part of the most important works of a Russian philosopher. How can a modern human understand Losevs most important provision about Name being a Myth if we are used to the thought that myth is a distorted interpretation of the world, illusion created by a weak mind, a fairy-tale and almost a lie? It is shown that Losevs philosophical system is still important both in religious, philosophical and socio-cultural approaches. Losevs Philosophy of Name was created not as a theoretical research but as a result of understanding human personality, divine personality, and their relations through Gods Name.


Keywords:
