Book chapter

К понятию "цивилизационный проект" в контексте поздней глобализацции

С. 28-40.

Contemporary discussion on the concept of "civilization" raises
a number of questions for researchers: what is civilization? Does it make sense
to talk about "civilizations" in the plural? What is the relationship between
"civilization" and contemporaneity? The relevance of the issues can be
confirmed by indicating the appeal to them not only by scientists, but also by
politicians and common people. The cultural complexity of the contemporary
world leads to the fact that the concepts are used more often, but the clarity of
their meanings is largely lost. The article proposes to return to the
methodological issue of definition of concepts in order to clarify how
contemporaneity functions. To achieve this goal, it is proposed to consider the
concept of "civilization" and "civilizations", first, in the historical context, and,
secondly, to relate them to one of the most important features of
contemporaneity – "late globalization". The author assumes that the undertaken
consideration is able not only to clarify the use of concepts, but also to deepen
our understanding of contemporaneity, as well as to get closer to the productive meaning of the discussion on "civilizational projects" which is relevant in the
Russian context.
