Иррациональная сторона Рационального

Отечественные записки. 2013. № 1(52). С. 70-78.

In the first part of the article, the present-day situation in Russia is examined in terms of a number of major criteria of modernization. The conclusion is drawn that the country is, on the whole, a society being modernized. The second part of the article focuses on main forms of anti-modernization reactions in modern society, with emphasis on their specifically Russian features. The main point substantiated in the article is that the modern and modernization do not boil down to rationalization but include a multitude of compensatory reactions to rationality understood in the sense of the classical ideals of the Enlightenment.
