This article attempts to deal with the last phase of the life and work of Auguste Conte, the founder of the philosophy of positivism. The appearance and development of this type of philosophy were conditioned by the new waves of thought which dominated European philosophy during the nineteenth century. It was believed that faith in a scientific method would guarantee the success of any kind of scientific endeavor. Conte developed his idea of a three level intellectual evolution from notions which had already been posited by Saint-Simon. According to this ideology, man begins to mature when he begins to abandon his childish and immature notions about the world, or in other words, his religious-mystical preoccupations. Eventually he becomes an adult and begins to discover a type of God in himself. But in this way, positivism itself begins to develop its own religious and mystical traits while at the same time conducting a fierce battle with a religious conception of the world. These ideas come especially to the fore in the later works of Conte. In these works, the philosopher stipulates that although sociology is at the absolute pinnacle of the sciences, there is yet another level, still higher than all these - and that is the domain of the so-called religion of mankind.

This article deals with one of the key events in the history of relations between the state and religious denominations in Russia, i.e. preparing the decree on the separation of the church from the state and the school from the church. This decree determined the main principles and directions of activities of the state as to the church. The article shows the role of M.A. Reusner, the prominent scholar and lawyer, in the preparation of the decree, identifi es his actual role in the process of designing the document. Using documentary materials and academic works of Prof. M.A. Reusner himself, the article analyses his contribution to the development of the decree. The article also assesses the historical role of the scholar in the committee which prepared the decree as well as the influence of his expert and personal opinions on the formulation of specifi c provisions of the decree. The main conclusion of the study is that Prof. Reusner, who was a renowned scholar and lawyer involved in the work of the decree was not its actual ideologist.

In the article «The Religion and philosophical bases of the content the spiritual and moral education of the pupils today» is given the pedagogical substantiation of the expediency of education to the religious and philosophical thought of Russia as to bases for staffing of the content of the spiritual and moral education of contemporary pupils. The relevance of this content consists in the need for comprehension by the schoolboys of anthropological ideal and sense of life of man in the period of pluralism in the choice of values and behavioral stereotypes. Age-related education to the values, which are stored in the traditions of orthodox culture and by those being been the object of religious and philosophical thought, being been the object of religious and philosophical thought, through the study of the works of Russian literature and art, makes possible for pupils to master the ideal of humanity of Jesus Christ and to see moral guidances in life of the saints at four levels: literal (lowest, simplest), semiotic, moral and highest anagogical. Appealing to the religious and philosophical thought in orthodox culture is caused by the presence in orthodoxy of the appeared anthropological ideal – God-man Jesus Christ. For the effectiveness of this mastering one should integrate verbal and painterly or icon-painterly images in the didactic unit. Special position in the article is given to the idea of the transfiguration of man, which at the literal and semiotic levels they be present in the fairy tales, and finds expression on the moral and anagogical levels in the works of literature, and to the theme of the beauty, in developed in detail in the religious and philosophical heritage. The disclosure of the theme of beauty occurs on the basis of reflection above the means of Jesus Christ in the works by F. M. Dostoyevsky and K. D. Ushinsky, and also based on the example of picture A. A. Ivanov « The Appearance of Christ Before the People». So that the acquaintance of pupils with the religious and philosophical thought would be organic and valuable necessary to acquaint them with the traditions of orthodox culture by the means of literature and art and from the early years to bring up the aesthetical perception of peace and value relation to its manifestations.
