Легитимность власти в России в условиях социетальной инволюции

In this paper I put a question about a legitimate base of the Russian authority's stability. The research is based on two theoretical conceptions: 1. the conception of societal involution, which was offered by M. Burawoy within the scope of a new school of social theory – public sociology; 2. a thesis that in the absence of a public validation mechanisms of authority's decisions authorities function in conditions of latent legitimacy crisis. The thesis has been taken from Habermasian's criticism on Weberian's concept of a legitimacy. By the argumentation given in the present work I make a conclusion that under conditions of societal involution Russian authorities stability is based not on legitimate foundations, but on informal practices.
