  • Member of the councils for the defense of doctoral theses at the Institute of philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Lomonosov Moscow State University.

Main scientific results

  • A non-classical theory of ABT-computability has been created, which allowed us to conduct a logical analysis of the phenomenon of time flow;

  • the epistemological status of computer theorems is established by logical means;

  • the semantics of non-constructive ways of reasoning in conditions of uncertainty is constructed and axiomatized;

  • an object-free ontology is constructed and the theorem on the elementary equivalence of object and object-free ontology is proved;

  • the concepts of "direction of time", "reversibility of time" and "reversibility of the flow of time" are explicated.

  • 8 basic properties of time are highlighted;

  • the fundamental difference between time scales in physics and time scales in history has been established;

  • the question of the relation of indefinite and definite concepts in classical logic is investigated;

  • a variant of the intensional theory of reality is constructed on the basis of the set theory with atoms;

  • the foundations of a new logical theory of truth as the coincidence of knowledge and objective reality are laid.
