1. Start.

The journey begins in a residential area of Kyiv – South Borshchagivka. This area was built during the existence of the Soviet Union.

There are many grocery stores and pharmacies here. There are so many pharmacies that in Italy I could not believe my eyes: I couldn’t find a single pharmacy. Here you are: over-the-counter antibiotics.

There are also many old panel houses and beautiful girls. Every third girl is a James Bond girl).

Intellectual Vanity and Movement of Law

Vanity Fair is an English novel by William Makepeace Thackeray

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

Intellectual vanity denies the possibility of comprehending reality, proclaims the limitations of knowledge and creates a scientific fallacy – a phanomen of law, which is doomed to unattainability and otherworldly existence.

Similarly, the starry sky for an inexperienced observer seems frozen, and the stars themselves are motionless, but the observer can not stop the movement of the stars.

Thereby, the рhanomen of law cannot stop the movement of law as a nomen – eternally moving, real and reasonably real.

Shaky phenomenology sometimes leads to a denial of the effectiveness of law itself and gives grounds for proclaiming the thesis of a crisis of legal thought. Hence, there are attempts leveling the Law to an ordinary instrument of economics.

The Lion King and Denis Lyons

The Lion King and Denis Lyons

As a matter of fact, there is no direct connection between the Lion King and Denis Lyons, but more on that below. The thing is that, despite my mature age, I continue to learn English.

A new generation of Ukrainian and foreign students has appeared in Ukraine, who studies economics and law in English.

While lecturing for them, I needed to learn English, and I set to work on this difficult task. But to study you need a teacher and preferably a good one. And to learn English, a good teacher is doubly needed.

Like everyone, I started attending English courses. This is a good pastime, but nothing more. The more I advance in courses, the more steps I have ahead. You can go to these courses for years. I heard that some do. I can’t blame them.

The Law Also Rises: Becoming

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

The scientific knowledge of law aims at two interconnected things: a) obtaining a true knowledge of law and b) an identification of law’ patterns in all its manifestations.

Traditional doctrinal legal understanding is limited by the categorical apparatus and problems of epistemological nature.

On the one hand, there is a long-standing hopeless controversy about the choice between the rule of law or judicial discretion.

On the other hand, there is an endless searching of criteria for the optimal structuring of law by branches of law.

The Searchers of the Lost Law: The Beginning

The Searchers of the Lost Law: The Beginning

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

Primitive physical being absorbed by society and has no self-interest. Realizing different from other such creature becomes a Person, but at first only in the social and psychological sense. In a legal sense, such a person is only an object.

The ability of a person to become the subject of the Law due to the development of the Person and is connected with awareness of the Law within yourself.

Standing out from the herd, a primitive creature realized itself as a person. A person necessarily has his own interests. Realization of the interests is possible only through subjective rights.

The Law as an idea is a self-sufficient and can exist indefinitely without a person but the exercise of the Law without the Person is an impossible.

Hence, the Law as legal regulation can not be the Law for no one.

Штучний інтелект і право

Штучний інтелект і право

Курбонов Азіз Ёрбобо угли, МЕ101з, КНЕУ


Штучний інтелект – це унікальний продукт технічного прогресу, що дає змогу машинам вчитися, використовуючи людський і власний досвід, пристосовуватися до нових умов в рамках свого застосування, виконувати різнопланові завдання, які тривалий час були під силу лише людині, прогнозувати події й оптимізувати ресурси різного характеру.

Дискусії з приводу штучного інтелекту все частіше виникають останнім часом, в світлі активного розвитку інформаційних технологій.
