Images of the Ideal. Evald Ilyenkov at 100.
International conference, May 16–17, 2024, Leibniz-Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung Berlin (ZfL)
Organisation: Zaal Andronikashvili (ZfL Berlin), Isabel Jacobs (Queen Mary U of London), Martin Küpper (Kiel University), and Matthias Schwartz (ZfL Berlin)
Evald Ilyenkov (1924–1979) was one of the most important philosophers of the Soviet era. His philosophical interests included, among others, dialectics and logic, political economy, psychology, cosmology, cybernetics, aesthetics, pedagogy, subjectivity, and personhood. He is particularly known as the philosophical representative of cultural-historical activity theory in Soviet psychology. As a teacher, Ilyenkov aimed to teach his students how (and not what) to think, arguing for a holistic approach that resisted automatization and unquestioned tenets. Long after the demise of the Soviet Union, his radical approach keeps on shaping educational and psychological orientations worldwide.
