Levit G. I. 50th Birthday of Iunatskevich Peter Ivanovich

Contemporary reality analysis showed that its key problem is global inequality in society which leads to scarcity of justice. This problem is global and occurred due to the development of materialist thought or the academic and historic thought, which lead society to the commerce and consumption paradigm as an approach to organize itself. Its depth is reduced to the question of the value of human life, which is expressed in the volume of gained materialistic wealth – the value itself. This value was determined as a result of individual groups and social subjects concentrating such capital in a short-term, which was earlier formed with great labor of many generations. They also gained mechanisms of distributing this capital among the population. As a consequence of scarcity, any human relationships have a parasitic nature, as the value bearer is the means to achieve it in any system. Greed for profit has become the main motivation that provides sustainable development of the commerce and consumption paradigm in the society.

The pointed out problem is aggravated by the trust crisis regarding traditional ethical regulators and institutes. They have lost their efficiency due to scientific progress, i.e. they no longer answer the infinite contemporary questions. Along with the silence, the moral and ethical complex called “morality” has run its course.

However, a person who experienced injustice of the existing paradigm, who was exploited by society, is now standing against it with a formed order to change the generation idea of a golden calf.

So what is the way to limit parasitism of one over others, how to make others not do harm to an individual?

While studying the problem of modern society crisis, injustice problems and solutions of improving the situation, an authoritative scientist, Doctor of Military Science, Professor Chigirev Viktor Anatolevich assumed that to change the attitudinal paradigm, which is the catalyzer to the main injustice problem and others, society requires a change of values, goals and means. Understanding the inefficiency problematics of former moral regulators, but considering their key advantages, the ideology and technology of morality was suggested as the main means to reach the goal of a moral person, assuming that value is an individual. It is in itself an idea of morality, where no harm is done to others, and a technology, which implies constant morality assessment of others and one’s self. The idea of morality is based on its definition: it is a certain state of mind and behavior that allows not doing harm to one’s self, others and the environment. It is simpler put by Chigirev V. A. in his Global Ecological Behavioral Imperative or Three Cs – “do no harm to yourself (C1), neighbors (C2), environment (C3), not in thought, not in word, not in deed”. Whereas, the scientific practical core of the ideology and technology morality’s technical part composes the developed Discursive-Judgmental Method (DJM) of Professor Chigirev. The method’s objective is to hold a channeled discussion, a group and mass moral assessment and visualization of harm (threat) coming from a certain individual. This method allows promptly and selectively limiting and preventing harmful and parasitic influence from the social subjects’ point of view. Overall, DJM secures justice equilibrium in the society.


Chigirev V. A.


In response to the morality scarcity in governments and society altogether, Iunatskevich Peter Ivanovich – a psychologist, Doctor of Education and the disciple of Professor Chigirev – founded a project called “Institute of Morality” in 2004. The fundamental ideas of this project are the formation of socially active citizens, the achievement of social harmony and the key objective – creation of an open civil society.

Under the leadership of Iunatskevich P. I. as a cofounder and the research and practice supervisor, the Institute has overcome one of the most important obstacles. It carried out a key ideological transition within a year of operation: from “morality” as an outdated concept of morality to “morality” as the main dialogue agenda of leading politicians and country leaders, as the key concept and goal of a nation’s society. Accommodating the social request to reverse individuals that make socially significant decisions to honest behavior, to a behavior that does no harm to others. The Institute suggests the first practical solution to those objectives – the Expert-Group Assessment of Decisions Method (EGADM).


Iunatskevich P. I.


State-Public Scientific Advisory Board (SPSAB), consisting of hundreds of experts, legislative and executive power representatives of Saint Petersburg, was the organizational provider of the method. All members of SPSAB discussed and assessed socially significant projects decisions, where, if the assessment is negative, the decision was corrected or canceled.

The outcome of this stage of operation was the vivid demonstration of the Discursive-Judgmental Method, employed on a realistic objectives and projects. This lead to the Russian Federation President’s decision to compulsory create community boards in all state authorities in 2005-2006 and, to a norm of today, regular posting of all statutory acts projects of state authorities on official sites for feedback and correction after discussion and assessment by the expert community.

After five years of operation, during which the project theories of Social assessment networks were formulated, the research and practice examples of employing the ideology and technology of morality and the Discursive-Judgmental Approach were designed, the Institute’s practice gains international recognition. This results in the foundation of the International Academy of Social Technologies (IAST) in 2009. In the following couple of years, the IAST’s branches were presented in France, Israel, Slovakia, Thailand and others – the Institutes practice has gained global nature.


It is worth mentioning that Iunatskevich Peter Ivanovich’s main merit of his scientific practice is his initiative and participation in organizing new institutes that employ the Discursive-Judgmental Practice in specific subject areas, e.g. integrative medicine, adult education, socialism, military human and ecosocial technologies. Organization supervision of those areas has made it possible to implement DJM in more distinctive areas of human activities. It also allowed demonstrating the method as a universal and effective instrument of behavior regulation. This practice has shown that the simple idea of moral principal abidance is approved by the absolute majority of the population and swiftly becomes a behavioral norm for citizens.

Thus, from unofficial discussions on morality restoration, the ideology and technology has become an International dialogue on the possibility of Discursive-Judgmental Method implementation globally.

Reminiscing, it is worth remembering that Peter Ivanovich Iunatskevich has been productively working and studying under the supervision of Chigirev Viktor Anatolevich since the end of the 80s. Their synergy, to this date, has played the key role in the achievement of the Institute of Morality’s main goal. Thus, they developed, tested and launched working models of influence in local and virtual environments conducting research and assimilating the theory in the rhizomorphous environment management. In addition, they designed examples of new generation social networks (networks of influence – VI technological wave).

Such network finds solutions to immediate problems of justice disequilibrium, allowing its users to actually influence social processes, in consequence, on the mechanisms of material values distribution. This happens online, where the influence is expressed in the form of assessing (and its visualization) one or another social deed. Every individual gets an instrument of influence on the daily life processes.


It was possible to employ the principal of negative civil consent, which allowed preventing social parasitism and corrupt practices in specific social conflicts under the supervision of Chigirev V. A. and Iunatskevich P. I. when testing the new networks of influence.

One of the main characteristics of this technology is its humanity, nonlethality. In other words, reeducation of the individual doing harm is carried out by visualization of that harm, where execution is substituted by social death. As a result, the subject is not able to negatively influence others as he is seen as harmful.

Another important achievement of Iunatskevich and Chigirev collaborative work  is the development of a new research area, a scientific practice – subjectology. The topic of its research is a social subject, which is under study in isolation, starting with its chem-bio basis, as well as in the context of its engagement with other objects. Science describes the subject’s activity or attributes within the scope of the Discursive-Judgmental Method.

The actualization of this research area is a logical extension of the Discursive-Judgmental Approach. Subjectology has the purpose of in-depth study of a specific subject’s every component, which leads to gaining insight and assessment of the subject itself and its factors.

Having acquired positive implementation results of the Discursive-Judgmental Approach in governmental and social environment, having achieved success in employing new formulas and modules of social justice equilibrium in a private environment for specific customers in 2019, Peter Ivanovich Iunatskevich and Viktor Anatolevich Chigirev made a transition to a new development stage of their research and practice activity. Based on IAST reformed into the Academy of Social Technologies, having experience of employing the DJM as a solution for group discussion and assessment, the AST begins developing an adaptable model of a global assessment network. This network is supposed to accelerate the implementation process and the employment of the morality ideology and technology as well as the DJM as an instrument of masses.

AST is renamed to AEST on 19 March 2020.


The academy reorganization history: IAST – AST – AEST as the main subject of the Discursive-Judgmental Method employment.

The Global Discursive-Judgmental Environment or GloDJE – can be presented simultaneously as in a virtual or a hyper-real form as well as in a physical form. It is a so-called SuperApp – an ecosystem that includes an indefinite variety of other employment forms of the Discursive-Judgmental Method. It is used here and now in any field of a social subject’s activity. Its concept involves compilation, accumulation and illustration of the DJM employment results by social groups in various fields.

Carrying on the principals of DJM, GloDJE also implies principals:

- The environment is not for certain individuals, but for all.

- In the case of a virtual form, the software has an open source code, any correction of which undergoes discursion and assessment among users and the expert community. The environment is open for integration with other applications employing DJM, which do not violate the Declaration of an open civil society; its participants and the expert community in the case of a physical form freely correct forms and rules of the environment organization.

- The establishment of The Global Discursive-Judgmental Environment is directed on forming an open civil society based on the morality ideology and technology. It is also directed on security and employment of all social subjects’ interests as well as finding solutions to the ecological problems of the world community.

Various forms of the Discursive-Judgmental Method and the morality ideology and technology as a social basis, integrated into any preinstalled social mechanisms, innovative influence methods and new generation social networks, are successfully implemented under the supervision of Peter Ivanovich Iunatskevich. Today no one else can provide mentioned above forms. By employing the idea of morality restoration of social subjects, Iunatskevich Peter Ivanovich has promptly enlisted leading scientists and social technologists into the process of creating an open civil society. He carried out initiatives of implementing DJM in various fields of social subjects’ activities and participated in the development of new adaptive models of justice equilibrium in the society with their successful further employment in governmental as well as private processes. In addition, he actively worked on the organization of an international dialogue with the agenda of the Discursive-Judgmental mechanisms employment.


On behalf of the members of the Academy of Ecosocial Technologies (AEST), colleagues and students congratulate Iunatskevich Peter Ivanovich with his 50th anniversary!

We thank you for the accomplished work on building an open civil society and for the invaluable research and practice contribution into the development of Discursive-Judgmental practices and education in the humanities.

Throughout the long years of labor, Peter Ivanovich has proved to be a talented organizer, under whose supervision the Institute of Morality has gained international recognition, whereas, the employment of the Discursive-Judgmental Method has become possible in many fields of activities of our society.

By finding an unconventional solution to difficult situations, you successfully guarantee the principals of morality and protect those who fall victim to the inequality of society.

Speaking from personal experience of collaborating with Iunatskevich Peter Ivanovich, it is impossible not to mention how wisely and patiently he transferred his knowledge to us.
