#35-edu Conceptual analysis of philosophical concepts of time awareness
Human life and activity cannot run without contact with the reality of time. Both time and its awareness, as well as its rational use, are dynamic phenomena, which argues for the high interest in them from the viewpoint of psychology, philosophy, and other sciences. All this determines the need for a deeper scientific study and philosophical understanding [...] Load More of time and the problem of its perception. The statement of the problem of studying time awareness in the context of probability and vectors of determining the behavior of a modern person becomes even more actual. The purpose of this paper is a conceptual analysis of the essence and characteristics of time awareness in philosophical theories and problems of objectivity of time. The diachronic method and content analysis helped analyze the essential characteristics of the definition of “time” and the meaningfulness of the concept of time awareness from the standpoint of an interdisciplinary approach in the study of this category in physics, psychology, and philosophy. The psychological approach to the study of time was excluded as, depending on the context of the philosophical concept, the understanding of time awareness becomes significantly modified. The methods of deconstruction and deductive analysis within the framework of the philosophical concepts of time allowed revealing that the category of the duration of processes in most cases correlates with the philosophical concept of space (properties of an object) and are considered by scientists as structural objects of the material world and forms of being. The axiomatic method, based on the results of the analysis of the philosophical concepts of the consciousness of time, made it possible to substantiate the main contradictions in the study of time from the point of view of an interdisciplinary approach, which consists of the approaches of the associative application of the modes “past,” “present”, and “future” to the time in relation to the collective and individual unconscious. This determines the search for an unambiguous understanding of the reality of being. The parameters of understanding the objectivity and subjectivity of time are grounded by logical inference. The obtained results within the framework of the research have a conceptual character and can serve as a basis for: 1) improving the theoretical foundations of the study of general and specific properties of time awareness; 2) development of a synthetic approach for comprehending and conceptualizing the concept of time, proceeding from the idea of the unity and integrity of the world.
