National Research Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod, together with Nizhny Novgorod Institute of the Education Development and Russian Society for History and Philosophy of Science, invites you to participate in
The Third All-Russian Scientific Conference “Revolution and Evolution: Models of Change in Science, Culture and Society” Dates: November 26th – 28th, 2021.
Location: Russia, Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod, 23 Prospekt Gagarina (Gagarin Avenue), Nizhny Novgorod, Russian Federation
Current dynamics of our time highlights a renewed philosophical interpretation of the phenomenon of revolution in its most diverse dimensions – social, cultural, scientific, technological, and anthropological. In the context of the dynamically changing outlines of contemporary world, it is the analysis of the revolutionary development model that is becoming the key to understanding current trends and phenomena. A revolution might be contrasted to an evolution as an opposing model of changes in science, culture, and society. A choice between them or a comprehended rejection of this alternative facilitates both elucidating the current state of social existence and delineating further ways of its development.
We invite philosophers, scientists and scholars, undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in the history, current state, perspectives, and new opportunities of development for science, society, and culture. The Conference proceedings will be indexed in the Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI; Russian: РИНЦ). Extended versions of the best papers will be published in leading peer-reviewed academic journals.
The conference languages are Russian and English.
We are planning the following sessions.
