ETHICAL PROBEMS OF ASTRONOMY

SCIENCE AND BUSINESS

Such a trifle as a starry night sky of largest observatories turned out to be a small change coin in commercial bargains for exclusive communal services in Russia, and for a few elite flats in penthouses in Ukraine.

SCIENCE AND BUREAUCRATISM

First, the state imposes the power vertical line in scientific institutions, and as a result, careerism and bureaucratism prospere, and then we face with philosophers who cannot distinguish science from bureaucratism! (Till in Russian)

SCIENCE AND RELIGION

Clericalization of science and education.
Propaganda of medieval theological conceptions in Russian schools instead of astronomy teaching (till in Russian).
