The Register of Intellectual Elite of the World

 

 

Foreword

         XXI century - the truly special century. It sums up comprehensive development of a mankind for XX centuries and also paves the really new, breakthrough ways to the future, previously unknown and even unimaginable. An open review occurs and a kind of intellectual mobilization of all forces of the world, visibly diverse progressive development of the mankind.

In Saint-Petersburg (Russia) on January 20, 2009 took place an organized and conducted by the Intergovernmental Higher Academic Council (IHAC) at the International University of Fundamental Studies (IUFS) World Scientific Congress. On the initiative and under the direction of the IHAC under the IUFS, now, as a result of the Congress is being created the «Register of the Intellectual Elite of the World» (RIEW), which will include people, who have already made and are making a significant and real contribution in the progressive course of modern history.

 

 

All of diversified activities of the IHAC under the IUFS is based on a fundamentally new «Philosophy of Interaction» (PI) - the philosophy of the XXI century, which really corresponds to reality at all levels and in all forms. This philosophy is vital to the world, orienting it all over on the interaction as a norm of life.

The PI proceeds from the fact, that reality is interaction of various principles, ultimately, material and spiritual, inherent to all the phenomena of living and non-living nature (of course, in varying degrees). Interaction is complementarity, mutual and partial mutual transition into each other of different principles, in the latter end material and spiritual.

Fight is just a special case of extreme and direct contact interaction, but not a universal law of development and a standard of life. Basically, fight as violence is unpromising and fatal to a man and mankind. Violence inevitably causes violence, and this way, at best, is a dead end, but rather, to an even more cruel and deadly to people violence. Choosing the way is up to everyone and all of humanity.

It is the interaction which is a natural rate of being for everyone, living on our planet.

Interaction, in fact, is a goal, object, way and the result of all forms of intellectual activity. The idea of interaction determines its nature, makes a humanistic orientation and simultaneously promotes the fullest possible realization of intentions and capabilities of any intellectual, somehow recognizing the idea of interaction.

The idea of interaction internally organizes all the «Register of the Intellectual Elite of the World»(RIEW).

The «Register» as a census, signature - is interaction of different, contained in the «Register» factful material with a definite and stable structure of its information presentation.

«Elitism» is interaction of self-estimation of an intellectual and real significance of its activities for the material and spiritual development of humanity.

«Intelligence» includes a variety of types of focused, creative, creating something new, spiritual activities (science, scientifically significant work, culture, art, education, politics, etc.). All of them are in real and diverse interaction.

Spirituality is an internal unit (predisposition, readiness), focused on its material and practical implementation. Spirituality, in principle, is common to all the phenomena of the real world and can be very different in its orientation and real terms, can be positive and negative. The most valuable and really important for a person, all and everyone, is spirituality as an internal setting for interaction and its implementation in various kinds of intellectual activities, actively promoting practice.

The measure of true intelligence is determined by the measure of the ability of an expert in some field to interact within himself, his spiritual components, and with the world, within his domain (target, object, etc.) and other fields of activity, which are outside of this expert.

The primary criterion of selection in the «Register» is a real assistance of a person to strengthen and promote the development of the idea of interaction in their activities and in the world. Criterion is both rather wide and sufficiently specific.

Such a criterion would create the «Register of the Intellectual Elite of the World» (RIEW) as a genuine and everlasting value, characterizing our epoch.

 

The «Register» is an open system for all the intellectuals of the world, contributing to the high standards, according to which the «Register of the Intellectual Elite of the World» (RIEW) is created.
