ETHICAL PROBEMS OF ASTRONOMY IN THE IAY2009
SCIENCE AND BUSINESS
Such a trifle as a starry night sky of largest observatories
turned out to be a small change coin
in commercial bargains for exclusive communal services in Russia,
and for a few elite flats in penthouses in Ukraine.
SCIENCE AND BUREAUCRATISM
First, the state imposes the power vertical line in scientific institutions, and as
a result, careerism and bureaucratism prospere, and then we face with philosophers
who cannot distinguish science from bureaucratism! (Till in Russian)
SCIENCE AND RELIGION
Clericalization of science and education (Till in Russian).
