Essay on Bernard Stiegler’s history of mnemotechnics
The purpose of this article is to present history of memory techniques as it described by French philosopher Bernard Stiegler.
It is shown that Stiegler speaks fr om the point of view of humanistic marxism arguing that the positive development
of mnemotechnics is determined by their integration into symbolic relations, outside of which they becomes a means
of consumer capitalism. History of mnemotechnics is divided on two large periods — preindustrial and industrial, where the
former is determined by the dominance of religion, politics and culture, and the latter — by the law of surplus value. It is
analyzed Stiegler’s understanding of mnemotechnics as «epiphylogenesis» or «third memory». The main features
of mnemotechnical evolution, from the first inscriptions on stone tools to today’s global digital retentional apparatus,

Japanese Popular Culture and Digimodernism
The article addresses the socio-philosophical interpretations of Japanese popular culture. Pointing out the unique position
of the latter, the author believes that the experience of a number of successful Japanese projects that have become global
phenomena can be used by social and cultural theorists to analyze modernity. The article refers to the genesis of Japanese
popular culture in the mid-90s of the XX century, when the most popular part of Japanese pop culture in the West — anime —
embodied the postmodern canon. However, a closer look reveals that the optics of postmodernism, which by the end
of the XX century had already ceased to be advanced research optics, may not be enough for analysis. A number
of phenomena, among which the author highlights the Pokйmon media franchise, require a different research approach.
As a relevant methodological optics, the article refers to the concept of «digimodernism» by the British theorist Alan Kirby.
With the help of its main provisions, it is shown that Japanese popular culture was at the forefront of the cultural process,
offering several interesting finds to modernity. After analyzing the socio-philosophical reasons for the success of Pokйmon,
the author points out that the concept of digimodernism has some applicability for the analysis of modern cultural
phenomena, аnd a number of ideas of Alan Kirby about the autistic nature of modern digital civilization could be found
as reflected in the culture.
Keywords: socialphilosophy, theory of culture, Japanese popular culture, anime, digimodernism, postmodernism,

Physicalism and moral responsibility: presentation of derivative consequence argument
In this paper, the author introduces the derivative consequence argument, which aims to demonstrate that moral responsibility
is impossible in the world wh ere physicalism and the strong realism about the laws of nature are both true. The basic intuition
of the argument is that if the laws of nature determine the events, then nobody can be responsible for those events, because
nobody is responsible for the laws of nature. This intuitive idea is formalized in the categories of derivative causation
and motion. This argument is compatible with determinism and indeterminism, and all types of physicalism.
Keywords: free will, laws of nature, compatibilism, incompatibilism, consequence argument, metaphysics, motion, physicalism,

Conditional analysis of free will and consequence argument
The conditional analysis of the meaning of the phrase «free will» is a classical compatibilist strategy, first introduced
by David Hume and still widely used by compatibilists. The consequence argument is an influential argument against
compatibilism. If the consequence argument is sound, then physical determinism is incompatible with alternative possibilities
for any agent. In this article, I consider the relationship between the consequence argument and classical compatibilism.
I demonstrate that the consequence argument uses premises that should be rejected by proponents of the counterfactual
conditional analysis of free will.
Keywords: free will, classical compatibilism, conditional analysis, consequence argument.

On derivative consequence argument
The article gives critical remarks to the derivative consequence argument proposed by Bogdan Faul. The first critical
remark concerns the ontological status of the laws of nature, the second remark deals with the term «physicalism».
It is demonstrated that conceptual vagueness of the terms used by B. Faul in his article undermines the validity of the
proposed derivative argument.
Keywords: Bogdan Faul, physicalism, laws of nature, free will.
T. S. Demin
To what theories of laws of nature B. Faul’s argument is applicable?
The derivative argument of the consequences is aimed at proving the incompatibility of certain theories of the laws
of nature in conjunction with physicalism and the existence of moral responsibility. In this text, it is outlined the applicability
of this argument to the most famous theories of the laws of nature. The argument can only be directed to those theories
that are pinched by realism regarding the laws of nature. This text demonstrates that the most promising targets for
the argument are Armstrong’s theory as well as some of the nonreductive theories of the laws of nature.
Keywords: laws of nature, systems approach, theories of universals, antireductionism, derivative consequence argument.

New version of derivative consequence argument and response to objections
In this paper, I respond to the objections and comments, which are raised by D. Razeev, T. Demin, and M. Sekatskaya.
I provide a new formulation of the argument, which avoids all the problems mentioned by these philosophers in their
papers and at the conferences.
Keywords: derivative consequence argument, free will, laws of nature, moral responsibility.

Derek Parfit and yearning for personal identity (we do not exist, but really want to)
The article critically represents Derek Parfit’s view on personal identity and its connection with our bodies. During
the discussion with animalists who claim that persons are identical with bodies Parfit defends Lockean view and
concludes that person isn’t identical with human being and easily can exist beyond it. Yet it seems obvious that person
isn’t identical with body, such views lead to the controversial effects. For example, Parfit claims that abortion or
euthanasia wouldn’t be a crime. This article discusses some of the most debatable basics of Parfit’s position and
suggests at least three points worth of next thinking. At first, the author highlights that the so-called psychological
criterion of personal identity is rather conventional. At second, the real experience of personal life doesn’t match with
the famous Lockean definition, because we have no any continuity. At third, D. Parfit doesn’t explain what it means
to be an animal (or human animal). If there is some biological «base» of a person (head, cerebrum, or part of
a cerebrum), it still stays an animal. In the conclusion of the article the author suggests that we are not human
beings, nor persons. But it doesn’t mean that we can’t become them.
Keywords: personality, identity, human being, human animal, Lockeanism, animalism.
We Are Not Human Beings / trans. from Engl. U. V. Dobronravova
The article presents a comparative analysis the views on the problem of personality identity by Neo-Lockeanism
(Shoemaker, Parfit, Lewis) and Animalism (Olson, Snowden, Carter). A certain of main objections to the psychological
criterion (the problem of too many thinkers, the too many persons problem, the thinking parts problem, etc.)
are critically examined. Basic animalist intuitions are refuted by the embodied person view (McMahan).
Keywords: teletransporter, personal identity, human being, brain, animalism, psychological сriterion.

Separate waste collection as key to effective implementation of the «garbage» reform
The article considers the current problem for our country-separate collection of waste, the main source of which
is the housing stock. It is shown that the absence of marked containers near residential buildings does not allow
sorting garbage «at the source», which hinders the further rational use of resources. The author offers a classification
of garbage collection methods used in the regions of our country, and highlights the most accessible of them.
The article indicates that due to the lack of capacity and funds, small businesses can only be involved in certain
stages of waste management that do not require expensive investments.
Keywords: waste management, separate waste collection, solid waste, containers, mobile collection points
for raw materials.
