Time of occurrence of philosophical school «Social-Ontology in the constructive-hermeneutic perspective» of O.N. Bushmakina in Udmurt State University can lead since first post-graduate students who began work on their thesis in the chosen theme. I.A. Semakina and I.V. Uvina (Solovey) were first post-graduate students who began work under direction of O.N. Bushmakina since 1996. The first defense was held in the dissertation council 053.01.07 at the Moscow State Pedagogical University, June 15, 1998. I.A. Semakina was successfully defended on theme "Being as text: the problem of self-determination of meaning" (specialty 09.00.01 - ontology and epistemology). Dissertation council on Ph.D. in philosophy (specialty 09.00.11 - social philosophy) was opened in 1999, in which one of the first thesis was defended by I.V. Uvina on theme "Ontology historical reality: the hermeneutic aspect." During the next ten years with a framework of the scientific school were reserved another 13 PhD theses and one doctoral thesis (SV Kardinskaya).
Scientists who work in the research field of the school take an active part in conferences at various levels up to international. During the existence of the scientific school were more than five hundred. The ability of school to gather around it researchers from other cities and regions shows its maturity. In 2009, there was a decision to organize its own conference under the auspices of the school. In May was held Russian scientific-practical conference "Social Ontology in structure of theoretical knowledge."
Many scientists who belonging to philosophical school of O.N. Bushmakina, take part in active scientific and organizational work on the Russian conferences within framework of their departments. They always take into account the interests and direction set by the scientific school. For example, PhD E.R. Rogozina organized Russian scientific-practical conference "Profession" Journalist ": Challenges of the XXI Century" at the Faculty of Journalism UdSU in November 2008. The XIV Russian scientific and practical conference with international participation "Modern social and political technologies: meanings and values", organized by the candidate of philosophical sciences NB Polyakova at the Institute of Social Communications UdSU was held in March 2009.
For a long time, a philosophical school regularly conducts scientific-theoretical seminar «Proxima». It can be considered the prototype of the first theoretical seminars for graduate and post-graduate students, organized and conducted by O.N. Bushmakina in 1985.
Since 1987, participants of these scientific meetings have been actively studying the texts of F. J. von Schelling. It is the work of the great German philosopher, the last star of the galaxy of German classics, became a theoretical guide in the process of creating their own ideas about how to philosophizing within philosophy itself, where the "point of view" is the basic principle of unfolding chain of philosophical discourse. Schelling is crucial for features philosophical discourse of self-determination of meaning, focused on the principle of immanence, complemented by subject-object identity. We view philosophy of this thinker as a kind of fastening link between the classical method of philosophizing with the features of the present stage of its development, the focus of which is the problem of meaning of thinking. The importance of Schelling approach for the development of modern philosophy is realized only now, when Hegelian conception of this science lost charm.
Development of scientific-theoretical seminars «Proxima» is on the path of the theoretical expansion, by including in the usage of philosophical school texts of contemporary philosophers, exploring major research areas in the field of philosophical thought. Such movement can significantly expand research horizons and enhances creativity of school participants. However, regular long-term work of the workshop helps the participants to organize and extend their own research intentions. Since most of them are actively teaching in higher education, the impact of seminars is manifested in the use of materials in the classroom with students of different departments. As supervisors of the course and graduate student’s projects, many members of the scientific school of O.N. Bushmakina teach students to apply the developed approach in a variety of angles, given the materials research. Confirmed the effectiveness of the school successfully defended her graduate student projects, as well as numerous defended his PhD theses and doctoral works.
