Yuri I. Semenov. Economy and society: Ways of determination (рр. 21–36).

The main provision of the Marxist materialist conception of society and, therefore, of its history is the recognition of the economy as a foundation or basis of society. The system of socio-economic relations, existing outside and independently of people's mind and will, defines their consciousness and will and determines their activity, and thus, affects the society's structure. But this determination occurs in different ways. One way is a direct determinacy by the economy of consciousness and will, and thus of people's behavior, that is an ortodetermination. It is characteristic of the capitalist economy. Another pattern is the definition of consciousness and will, and thus of the people's actions through intermediaries, primarily through some form of social will, that is a transdetermiation. Transdetermination is characteristic of pre-capitalist societies.

Keywords: materialist conception of history, economy, socio-economic relations, ortodetermination, transdetermination capitalist society, market, commodity-money relations pre-capitalist society, social will.

Marina A. Schestakova. The division of the sensual: Jacques Rancière's esthetic phenomenology (рр. 120–130).

Jacques Ranciere's concept of the distribution of the sensible considers aesthetics and politics as equivalent activities which purport to reconfigure the sensual experience. In fact, such an approach is phenomenological. It allows developing the idea of democracy as ‘disagreement’ (la mesentente) but at the same time it reduces aesthetics and politics to a resistance without positive social agenda.
