Matsyna Andrey, Polyakova Olga,


Affirmative solution of impasses in liberal arts sometimes could be found in natural sciences. Specifically, philosophic perception for such phenomena as human cognition, archaic myth-ritual mentality and ancient sepulchral rites ascertains necessity to use some theoretic positions of modern astronomy. Astronomic scientific reference in its logic-schematic conception enables to decode ancient, symbolic language of astronomic information engraved in archeological monuments, myths, religions and language of many nations. Separate parts of unified astronomic model revealed in ancient and contemporary artifacts allow to make more complete investigation for whole picture of ancient symbolic cosmological knowledge and peculiarity of its culture-historical options.
