  1. There are objective figures that show that philosophy has the strictest publication standards among all disciplines in general.

    Slightly less than 10% of the proposed articles are published in the world's leading peer-reviewed journals. Neither the education nor the availability of degrees guarantees that the work will simply be published.

    In Russia, everything is a little different – Sofya Tikhonova once recalled how a dissertation candidate managed to defend himself on the KOBE-because his opponents thought that this was a rather original and rational concept. It was the novelty that became the decisive factor in the defense. Now it is remembered as a curiosity.

  2. There are two positions regarding philosophy. One assumes that there is nothing new in philosophy and that all philosophies are really about the same thing, but in different words. The words are different, because at different times people have different stupidity and, as a result, different ways to describe overcoming it.

    Another suggests that, after all, and Hegel – not Descartes, so you can come up with something new and if it was possible before, then in the future this opportunity will not disappear.

    The truth is probably somewhere between, that is, in philosophy there is something eternal and there is something new. At least a way to overcome stupidity.

    With literature, everything is easier, Harry Potter is definitely not Pierre Bezukhov, even if both are wearing glasses and are ready to sacrifice themselves in the fight against evil.

  3. The famous physicist Roentgen (the same one), after graduating from the university, came to an old professor and asked him to puzzle him with a new scientific problem. “No,” said the professor, ” science is over, all the atoms are open, it remains only to correct some coefficients. That's what you want to do. If you want to do business, run away from science.” And then came the twentieth century. Moreover, as far as I know, many great philosophers considered the philosophical systems they created to be the pinnacle that cannot be surpassed: for example, Hegel, Marx. As one joke goes, a young scientist asks a 90-year-old helminthologist professor: “Professor, have you ever been bored with worms all your life? “Life is so short, and the worm is so long.”

    Conclusion: the world (and people, including) can not be fully understood. There is always room for a new one. Therefore, new developments in literature and philosophy are inevitable, not just possible.

  4. If someone knows why it is necessary to create something new in philosophy, then together we (he and I) will certainly do something, if only we had the intelligence and patience…
