Issaïeff is officially invited to participate at the 24th World Congress of Philosophy „Learning to be Human”, organised by the Fédération Internationale des Sociétés de Philosophie (fisp.org) with the cooperation of the Peking University (official report from the 24th WCP; Beijing, China); she received an invitation to present an official introduction to the third part of her intellectual investigations, which is: Phenomenology of the Undivided.

The presentation was conducted in the English language.


Anna K.J. Issaïeff is representative of the philosophy of dialogue and phenomenology while propounding the significance of “empirical and deliberate participation in continually created epistemological and existential process”.

She claims that the work of art has to embrace an intellectual element which is directed at the audience by the artist (the sender). This accounts for the beginning of a dialogue.

Moreover, Anna is of the opinion that – aside from continuous self-improvement on the part of the artist, which is his responsibility – the audience is equally obliged to do the same. What is of utmost importance is offering a possibility to communicate effectively both ways. All this can be achieved by means of a constructive dialogue which is void of aggression; since any art-related discourse cannot be crude, vacuous and – as a result – meaningless.

Her aim is to “deliberately interfere with conventionally programmed thought patterns, deprive people of the feeling of having false identity and to make an attempt at reaching agreement with them, as well as to understand motivation driving them to broadly understood autonomy”.
