This is the text of an interview given by professor of department of logic of the philosophical faculty St. Petersburg State University Yaroslav A. Slinin to Natalia Artemenko and Andrei Patkul. Prof. Slinin talks about the genesis of his philosophical views, in particular, about his way into phenomenology. His recollections of the phenomenological community in the former Leningrad is of very interest in the context of Soviet philosophy's historiography. It ought to remarked that the course under the titled «Phenomenology and Logic» delivered by Prof. Slinin since 1970 brought to bear overwhelming influence on the shaping of today's philosophical community in St. Petersburg. Hence, the problems of correlation between phenomenology and logic are discussed in this interview. Prof. Slinin points that the problematic of logic is the confluence point of phenomenology and analytical philosophy, which deal with the same problems but by different methods and in different attitudes. The main distinction points between these two philosophical trends are, on the one hand, that phenomenology has a metaphysical background, which is denied by representatives of classical analytical philosophy, and on the other hand, that phenomenologists as distinguished from analytical philosophers accept the intellectual intuition of essences. Prof. Slinin states with regard to correlation between phenomenology and contemporary cognitive sciences that the Husserl's distinction of transcendental and natural attitudes is very important up to now. He gives his own interpretation of Husserl's doctrine of reduction in this context. Prof. Slinin tries to show also that Heidegger describes by ontological terms the same phenomena which are described by Husserl in transcendental terms. As conclusion, Prof. Slinin talk about his other non-phenomenological interests in philosophy, namely, about ancient philosophy (particularly, patristic, early modern and Russian philosophy.
