Abstract

In 1907 – 1923 in Kharkov a non-periodical collection of works of the so-called "Kharkov school" – the followers of A.A. Potebnja and A.N. Veselovskiy – was published. Its title was "Questions of Theory and Psychology of Creativity". This article deals with the works included in this collection and in one way or another connected with the theory of poetic creativity. I show that some ideas of the researchers of the "Kharkov school" are still relevant for the philosophy of poetic creativity and philosophy of education and analyze the relevance of D.N. Ovsyaniko-Kulikovsky’s, A. Gornfeld’s, T. Raynov’s and P. Engelmeier’s works for the contemporary philosophy.

These works are examined from the point of view of their modern character and relevance for the philosophy of poetic creativity, as well as usefulness for the philosophy of education. D.N. Ovsyaniko-Kulikovsky analyzes the lyrical feeling that arises in the reader- interpreter reading a poetic work. We emphasize the importance of lyrical feeling in teaching as well. Gornfeld addresses the ideas of Potebnja recognizing any artistic work as symbolic and allegorical, as well as postulating an infinite number of possible interpretations of each artwork. This fact is also important for the education process. T. Raynov writes a chapter called “Lyrics of Scientific and Philosophical Creativity,” which also studies factors important for the philosophy of education. He analyses the factors influencing the way an individual conceives the problem being solved and solved, which may well be a teaching one. Finally, Engelmeyer intends to establish his science of creativity - Evrology. We also show that a reflection on teaching can be developed in parallel with his arguments about creativity.
