Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the epistemological views of Petro Semenovych Avsenev (1810-1852), a representative of Kyiv academic philosophy, in the light of his psychological experiments. The attention is payed to the fact that in the basis of the scientist’s anthropological and cognitive-theoretic studies lies a complex set of ideas of German idealism, Christianized Platonism and Orthodox-dogmatic teachings about the soul.
