Tatiyana S. Lapina. Law as the Object of Philosophical Reflections  (рр. 28–46).

Philosophy of law represents a new socio-humanitarian discipline which is in the process of establishing. Its subjects are common (objective and subjective) determinants of the law and its role among the factors of the social evolution. The author defines the problem and gives his own opinion on the logic of philosophical reflections on the law. The author supposes that adherence to philosophical logic will allow to represent systematically the philosophy of the law. Based on understanding of metaphysics as a doctrine of principles, the author proposes the bases of the law according to the parts of philosophy. Philosophy allows understanding that the bases of the law involve general connections which should be supported by the subjects in order to survive and develop the society and individuals. The mentioned connections initiate the law genesis as they raise necessity of the law and inevitability of its evolution. The problems of dialectics of the ideal and the real in law are posed. The immutability of philosophy's role in theoretical and humanistic justification of lawmaking and realization of the right is highlighted in the present article.

The evolution of the discourse about the subject of protest movements from Marxist to post-Marxist understanding is observed. Anti-consumerism's tendencies are analyzed within the theory of the late modernity. Principal differences in approaches to anti-consumerism in the Western and non-Western societies are shown in the article. Some contradictions in the process of forming the collective subject of social movement by focusing its power on the consumer side of the social life are discussed.

Alexander A. Biryukov. On the Essence of Dialectical Contradiction and Neo-Proudhonism (рр. 120–134).

Different approaches to interpretation of the contradiction are analyzed in this article. It is shown that specific nature of Marxism in relation to this question consists in recognizing the existence of the contradictions in the very essence of the objects. On the contrary, Proudhonism considers various aspects of the contradiction not paying attention to their mutual dependence. It is stated that nowadays any similar approach is often used by scientists and politicians to justify the current world situation. This allows the author to talk about the appearance of such phenomenon as neo-Proudhonism.

Keywords: contradiction, postmodernism, irrationalism, Marxism, dialectics, Proudhonism, capitalism, neo-Proudhonism.
