Stanzhevskii Fedor Alekseevich Saint Petersburg State Institute of Technology (Technical University)
Abstract. The article proposes an approach to consciousness, according to which cultural artifacts are constitutive for consciousness along with social environment. The author provides examples of artifactsТ constitutive meaning for the formation of human consciousness and self-consciousness. The researcher proposes a hypothesis that individual consciousness in some cases can be explained in terms of the system that is broader than an individual, for example, the system "brain - body - tool - environment (both social and material)".
Key words and phrases: предметы культуры, сознание, когнитивный процесс, индивид, орудие, artifacts, consciousness, cognitive process, individual, tool.
