Markov, Boris Vasilievich – Doctor of Science (Philosophy), Professor, Chairman of Philosophical Anthropology Department, Faculty of Philosophy, St. Petersburg State University.
The popularity of the assertion of the "Death of Man" can be largely explained by the decline of the traditional forms of life. Though the society of the future does not have much credibility even today, one cannot deny that modern technologies, including socio-anthropological techniques give an opportunity of making a society more humane. The task of the present-day philosophical analysis is to identify the set of anthropological constants and traditional practices of socializing people which are to be reproduced at any level of development of civilization.
Key words: man, philosophical anthropology, religious anthropology, human biology, anthropogenesis, cultural genesis, soul, body.
