2020 Issue 4. Education of a warrior in Greece and Rome ?(.*pdf)
The theme of the fourth issue is "Education of a warrior in Greece and Rome". In the Greek and Roman cultures, military prowess and military skills were viewed as decisive factors of what it meant to be a citizen and, in general, a Greek or a Roman. Military memorabilia and trophies were everywhere: on monuments and tombs, in the sculptural decoration of temples and even in the dining halls of private houses, where offensive and defensive weapons hung on the walls, and elegant dishes were decorated with military scenes. The military theme was present in the theater and at the popular assembly, in councils and courts, in markets and at funerals. Antique education always went hand in hand not only with physical education, but also with “literary education,” which implied the study of Homer and other poets who praised military prowess. It was the Latin word “virtus” that, along with the ancient Greek word “ἀρετή”, characterized a man and suggested civil and military service to the state. The fourth issue will be devoted to the pedagogical dimension of military conflicts, the themes of war and peace in the tragedies and comedies by mentors-playwrights (Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes, Terence, etc.), as well as the specifics of the military leader and ephebe education, which is reflected in the material culture and a wide range of texts (Plato and Xenophon’s dialogues, Cicero’s speeches and letters, Herodotus and Thucydides’ writings, the texts by Varro, Onesandrus, Josephus, Vegetius, etc.).
The tourth issue is available in libraries receiving a compulsory copy through the Russian book chamber

2018 Issue 2. Teaching through the theater and in the theater: ancient pedagogy of the stage ?(.*pdf)

The theme of the second issue is "Teaching through the theater and in the theater: ancient pedagogy of the stage". Ancient culture was marked by a love for theatrical performances which always found their audience and exerted educational influence on them through their scale, rituality, and the very opportunity to express oneself in public. For the first time in the history of pedagogy, in the works of ancient thinkers living in different periods of ancient history, it is emphasized that the theater was a school for adults and adolescents, where the audience were taught the correct understanding of events through the demonstration of the approved patterns of thinking and behavior. The works of ancient playwrights of different periods are not only a reflection of the poets’ critical views on the contemporary educational system, but they also represent attempts to visualize ideal educational practices. The second issue is available in libraries receiving a compulsory copy through the Russian book chamber, as well as in The Blegen Library of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (54 Souidias Street, GR-106 76, Athens, Greece), The library of the Athens Department of the Deutsches Archäogisches Institut (Fidiou 1, 10678, Athens, Greece)The library of French School at Athens (École française d’Athènes) (6 Didotou Street, 10680 Athens, Greece), The library of the Rome Department of the Deutsches Archäogisches Institut (Via Valadier 37, 00193 Rom), The library at the Head Office of the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (Bibliothek der Zentrale, Berlin Podbielskiallee, 69-71, 14195 Berlin, Deutschland)University Library of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Dorotheenstraße 24, Hegelplatz 10117 Berlin)University Library of Freie Universitat Berlin (Kaiserswerther Str. 16-18, 14195 Berlin), Martin Luter University of Halle-Wittenberg (August-Bebel-Straße 13/50, 06108 Halle (Saale)), University Library of Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (Piazza Università, 1, 39100 Bolzano BZ), The library of Kozma Minin Nizhny Novgorod State Pedagogical University, The library of Lobachevsky University, The library of Moscow Pedagogical State University, the Volgograd Regional Universal Scientific Library named after Maxim Gorky.

2017 Issue 1. Mark Tullius Cicero’s concept of education through culture ?(.*pdf)

The theme of the first issue is Mark Tullius Cicero’s concept of education through culture. Numerous sources reflecting Cicero’s life and career allow us to conclude that the general view of the Roman pedagogy formed in posterity is largely due to Cicero. Cicero’s vision of the educational ideal and the ways to achieve it were associated with the aspiration to “cultivate the soul” (“cultura animi”) and formed the basis for the Western pedagogical tradition of "educating through culture," thus defining the phrase "humane pedagogy" for many centuries ahead. Cicero understood education through culture not only as a kind of educational achievement, but also as a set of thinking and behavioral strategies developed by the mentor in the pupil, which will allow the latter to carry out educational design of himself in the future.

Despite the considerable amount of general and special works devoted to various aspects of Cicero's heritage, the question of whom he wrote them for and what he wanted to achieve by resorting to the form of presentation with a special arrangement of semantic emphasis is still open. Regardless of whom he was directly addressing (a friend, a companion, a representative of a particular philosophical school, the senate, the court or Roman people), Cicero often clothed his arguments in the form of precepts. He outlined ways and means not to lose, but to find oneself through education relevant to human nature, his humanitas. In all subsequent epochs, this kind of pedagogical reflection has been historically specific, but it has not lost its connection with the meaning found in Cicero’s writings. Identifying the heuristic and methodological potential of Cicero's heritage requires an interdisciplinary evaluation of that peculiar kind of dialogue which Cicero initiated with the ancient Greek tradition of intellectual and political education. The authors of this issue invite the reader not only to follow the logic of the formation, development and practical embodiment of Cicero’s educational ideal and its further manifestation in other epochs and cultures, but also to rethink some fundamental educational ideas in the history of pedagogical culture.

The issue presents the results of scientific research activities of researchers and teachers of higher and secondary educational institutions from Volgograd, Kaluga, Kamyshin, Moscow, Rostov-on-Don, Saratov, St. Petersburg, and two universities of USA. The first issue is available in libraries receiving a compulsory copy through the Russian book chamber, Central Scientific Library of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as in the Volgograd Regional Universal Scientific Library named after Maxim Gorky.
