International scientific-theoretical conference
Philosophical experience of children's literature: Moomins and the others
(Tove Jansson's 100th anniversary)
In terms of total infantilism as psychological characteristics of modern European society formed over the past 50-100 years, because of political, economic and social conditions, the most important is the description of the factors influencing the formation of the image of childhood (Infanta), defining its cultural and ethical content. Among these factors is the particular interest in the phenomenon of children's literature, which remains outside the actual spatial and temporal boundaries. Conference is devoted to the 100th anniversary of the birth of T.Jansson, the writer who created adult books for children with profound philosophical content.

Division between the adult world and the world of children existing in the culture is very conditional, but at the same time, belonging to the one or the other determines the psychological, moral, and social characteristics of the subject, his ethos . Blurring the boundaries between the adult world and the world of children allows an adult to find pleasure in the world of children, and children play in the world of adults, thus blurring the boundaries and the fixed social roles. Some works of literature, now understood as children’s stories, were created for adults (Gulliver's Travel  Robinson Crusoe, etc.), and others - were created  for children , but are very "adult" . This "borderline" group of works has the least clear target audience in terms of age. Authors of these works show a respectful attitude toward the reader and viewer, due to the lack of double standards ("adult", "child"), and therefore they don’t flirt with the reader or the viewer. T.Jansson is one of such authors. The purpose of this conference is to describe the phenomenon of "children's literature" in terms of its maturity (philosophy, culture, morality).
