Kyiv has been the philosophizing center over centuries. One can confidently say of certaisucceeding and identification of philosophers on the basis of belonging to the Kyiv Philosophical Circle, or so called Kyiv Philosophical School. The round-table sitting with participation of specialists from the H.S. Skovoroda Institute of Philosophy, T. Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, National University “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy”, and M.P. Dragomanov National Pedagogical University was dedicated to historical-and-philosophical analysis of this phenomenon, its philosophic conceptualization and terminological formatting. The first philosophical school was created in Kyiv Theological Academy, known as the «famous Kyiv school» that explains the world-view origins of the contemporary Ukrainian philosophy and directions of its development in the 20th century. Owing to achievements of precursors the Ukrainian philosophy has demonstrated its ability to adapt to new postsoviet realia. In particular, the Kyiv Philosophical School has recoded the soviet dogmatic Marxism-Leninism and defined specific place of philosophy in the intellectual landscape of Kyiv.
