Abstract.

The subject of the research is reflection as a form of mind's agency. Being an expanded concept of control, mind's agency fundamentally means complete and directed interaction between internal worlds ('mind levels') of individuals. Thus, agency is an ability of an individual to modify (change) the internal world of the cognizable. This is one's ability to create the ones that are alike, i.e. create one's own model of the world and other agency that is no less than one's own. In her research Tsvetikova demonstrates that our mind has agency as an ability of reflective influence of a mind of one individual on the mind of another individual. In fact, the main feature of the reflective mechanism is to make a controlled actor be aware of his or her personal choice through creating an image of a situation where an actor consciously makes a decision in favor of a controlling actor. Such interaction of actors is viewed by the author as the control over the inner world of the other actor and means agency. For the first time in the academic literature the author demonstrates a transformative function of the mind's reflection as revealing the mind's agency which may display itself as the extension of the mind's agency through restructuring of reflection of other individuals and, consequently, restructuring of the goal-setting process performed by the secondary actors interaction. Analysis of reflective aspects of the mind's agency allows to expand a scientific definition of the mind phenomenon and enable the society to make a scientifically well-grounded choice of systemic actors that have the agency for personal development as their feature.
