Criticism as the dynamics of humanistic thought

The text is dedicated to the reconstruction of the idea of the philosophical critique of culture. The emphasis is being put on the origins of such criticism in the Greek distinction between doxa and episteme and its developement through the philosophical criticism of the myth. Next comes the problem of the extension of philosophical critique to the very conditions of the possibility of knowl­edge, achieved by Immanuel Kant, and the effects of this extension for the status of reason. This leads to the concept of the instrumentalization of reason and opens a possibility of consideration of the contemporary status of philosophical criticism.
