About an academic degree of a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy»

 

According to the Oxford educational network, which was founded in 1640, and the centuries-old European scientific tradition at the IHAC under the IUFS, which is a part of the Oxford educational network, there are degrees of a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» and a «Doctor of Philosophy» in certain areas of scientific knowledge and in scientifically significant sphere of activity (international security, business administration, etc.).

In the 17th century philosophy was considered to be a "science of sciences", genetically and functionally including all other sciences. A "Grand Doctor of Philosophy" meant a higher academic degree, which itself implied the existence of a "philosophy" of other various sciences. A «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» - a truly universal. This stable tradition still exists, and the «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» got and still gets specifications: in what science and scientifically significant field of activity the «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» is meant. It had long been, and now there is a degree of a «Doctor of Philosophy», which in the scientific hierarchy was and still is lower than a degree of a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy».

The Oxford Educational Network had and has its own scientific subdivisions in England, Central and South America, Canada, Italy, etc. Everywhere they recognize the degree of a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» and a «Doctor of Philosophy», and directly in philosophy as a special science, and with a specification of a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» and a «Doctor of Philosophy» in a definite science and in a scientifically significant field of activity.

According to the «Regulations of the Higher Certification Commission (the HCC) of the USSR (the RF)» the highest academic degree is a degree of a «doctor of sciences» in certain areas of scientific knowledge, which significantly exceeds in a scientific relation a scientific degree of «candidate of sciences». In fact, such a scale was acting many years in all countries of former socialist countries. They believed, and still believe, as in other world countries, that the degree of a «Doctor of Sciences», adopted in the USSR (the RF), in principle is much higher in its scientific level than the degree of a «candidate of science», which, according to a definite tradition, is often called and considered a degree of a «Doctor of Science». So, the degree of a «Doctor of Sciences», as the highest academic degree, is actually equivalent in the number of countries to the degree of a «candidate of sciences», which does not suit the true state of the world science, its past and present.

It is principally important, that a real «Doctor of Sciences», significantly exceeding a formal «doctor», in its essence a «candidate of sciences», is called a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» in the world.

A «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» in a definite science and scientifically significant field of activity actually means in an international aspect a higher academic degree, which is adequate to an academic degree of a «Doctor of Sciences» in the RF, and other countries and, in fact, is the highest academic degree in the world, which is theoretically and practically recognized by the international community.

Gradation of a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» (a «Doctor of Sciences») and a «Doctor of Philosophy» (a «candidate of sciences») is adopted in the Commission of Nostrification of  Foreign Diplomas (the CNFD), which exists in the IHAC under the IUFS and which has an appropriate accreditation from the International Parliament for Safety and Peace (Italy, Palermo). This accreditation is legally valid in more than 150 countries.
The name a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» means that the job of an applicant and the owner of this degree is not simply empirical, but has a deep theoretical (essentially - philosophical) sense, especially significant for the «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy». In principle, this should have a sense of work of a «Doctor of Philosophy».  This is the "high science", and its expressionist is a «Grand-Doctor of Philosophy» in a particular area of ​​scientific knowledge and scientifically significant sphere of activity.
