The editorial board of “Filosofska dumka” has initiated the performance of round-table sittings dedicated to the problems of “memory places”. The round-table sittings were performed in the context of the momentous event — the 100th anniversary of legendary House of Maximilian Voloshin in Koktebel. The first round-table sitting was held in Koktebel at the 17th Voloshin’s readings and in the framework of exposition of M. Voloshin’s Memorial House in the National Arts Museum of Ukraine. The theme of memory is one of the major ones in the socio-philosophical discourse. One cannot imagine the self-organization of cultural reality without this phenomenon. The researchers’ consideration for mechanisms, role, contradictions and other aspects of memory in the culture and sociality is minimal. The arrangements were aimed at the activation of philosophical interest in the theme of memory and at realization of the attempt of its theoretical structuring. The round-table work materials have a purpose to clear the sense and place of “memory places” in the system of culture.
