T. G. Shchedrina


The article comprehends the importance of photography for historical-philosophical research. The author draws on the cultural and historical experience of working with photographs in the series "Russian Philosophy of the first half of the 20th century" (32 volumes were published). The problem of reality captured in photography comes to the fore in historical and philosophical research. Philosophers of the twentieth century question the reliability of the photographic image; historians of philosophy admit the existence of reality, which is depicted in the photograph, since they are dealing not only with the images presented in the photo but also with the matter of photography. It is shown that photography expands historical-philosophical research scope, introducing an existential component into it.
