Abstract: 

The authors aim to consider the problem of motivation of “trading zones’” actors. They pay special attention to understanding the way in which the interactions of different approaches and cultures take place. It’s claimed that “trading zones” relationships overcome the boundaries of habitual relationships. The authors analyze the emerging interest to transdisciplinary research In Russian philosophy. They discuss worldview dynamics within “trading zones” which is aimed to make the multidirectional interactions possible. It is noted that this sort of interactions requires both the acceptance of existing views and the need to go beyond them. It is argued that a combination of cultural and transcultural worldview elements is needed for a successful “trading zones” mediation. The authors point out to the problem of modernization of philosophical education that’s required to provide future specialists with universal ways of knowledge, communication and comprehension.
