Abstract

Volodymyr Shynkaruk (1928-2001) is a symbolic figure in formation of the post-Stalin Ukrainian philosophy. Role of Volodymyr Shynkaruk in the intellectual situation of Ukraine of the last four decades may be compared with the significance of creative work of Ukrainian poets of the sixties. He has made a rather essential contribution to development of the approach to historical-philosophical and gnoseological problems. However the major deserve of B.I. Shynkaruk in the field of philosophy and intellectual situation of the century was the transfer to studies in philosophical-anthropological problems. This challenge not only opened new thematic horizons and allowed analyzing the existence in all its volume, but also favored the assertion of vital optimism of a person who rather strives for knowledge than for possession.
