[xmca] Ilyenkov's conference

Dear colleagues,

Below I’ll give a Newsletter for Ilyenkov’s conference which will take  place in Zelenograd (Moscow suburb) in the middle of May.

The conference will centre on three crossing themes.

1.	The place of Ilyenkov in the world’s philosophy of XX-XXI century.
2.	Ilyenkov’s theoretic ideas as the real foundation of scientific (= Marxist) psychology
3.	Ilyenkov’s Marxist methodology and the key to many burning social, economic, political and cultural issues of the day

Among the organizers of the conference we can mention the Alter-Globalist Net-Work “ALTERNATIVES” which concentrate left Russian and international Marxist intellectuals,  Philosophical society “Dialectic and culture” and researching center “Mikhail Lifshitz archive” uniting many well known philosophers, sociologists and psychologists disciples of Evald Ilyenkov and Mikhail Lifshitz, and affiliated with ISCAR section “Dialectical Psychology” Russian researching group “Dialectical Psychology” and some others .

We are going to minimize the formal reading out of reports and maximize the discussions, round tables and substantial personal contact of participants of the conference.

Besides physical presence in the conference the remote (via internet video bridges) participation will be appreciated. We are planning to organize discussion with remote participants and discussions which starting during the conference will continue via internet forums and listserv.

The materials of the conference will be soon available at the special web site which will be ready every other week.
