Dmytro Sepetyis Personal Page

I am working as a lecturer on philosophy at Zaporizhzhya State Medical University (Ukraine).

My philosophical views were greatly influenced by Karl Poppers philosophy of politics and science. A have written and published (with the help of Smoloskyp patronage foundation) a book on liberal political philosophy and philosophy of science of XX century mostly considering the views of K.Popper, F. von Hayek, L. von Mises, I.Berlin, G.Soros Open Society: Ethics and Rationality (in Ukrainian language).

Now I am interested mostly in the problems of

            theory of critical rationalism;

            the mind-body problem (dualism-interactionism);

Here are my works in English:
