Ethical experiences are a traditional subject of Russian psychology, which has been repeatedly noted by researchers of the history of Russian psychological and philosophical thought [2,3,19,23]. In this sense, the study of the early stages of the development and presentation of ideas about higher mental functions in the academic environment of the first half of the 19th century, in particular, in the activities of the professors of the Kiev Theological Academy and the Kiev University of St. Vladimir, is of great scientific interest. The very names of the professors of these higher educational institutions of the largest university center of southern Russia inspire respect, because they constitute the true treasury of Russian theological, philosophical and psychological thought of the first half of the 19th century: Innokentiy Borisov (1800-1855), Peter Avsenev (1810-1852), Vasily Karpov (1798-1867), Ivan Skvortsov (1795-1863), Orest Novitsky (1806-1884), Joseph Mikhnevich (1809-1885), Dmitry Pospekhov (1821-1899), Sylvester Gogotsky (1813-1889), Pamphil Yurkevich (1827-1874).
