Culture of Thought and Knowledge-Power

The article is divided into a theoretical part explaining the conceptual apparatus of the author's conception of historical psychology, and an etude on the history of knowledge in European culture. The concepts of anthropoculture, a sapient diapason of evolution, and a sapient a priori are proposed. The culture of thought is defined as one of the anthropocultures. Demystification of a mediation category is planned for its transformation into a working concept of historical humanitarian research. In line with the new historical psychology, the concept of anthropology is supplemented by a sociopolitical dimension. Starting from the poststructuralist link "power-knowledge" and involving the model of the paradigm, the author offers concepts of cogitocracy and a cogidigma. A list of cogitocratic couples is given: ritual-community, philosophy-empire, religion-church, modern state-science, postmodern government-mass media. In the sketch of the European thinking culture, the cogitocracy of Antiquity and Modernity are examined. The origin of science and the psychological praxis of modern times (psy-complex) are treated in the aspect of historical relations of power and knowledge.
