Методологические проблемы определения политических сигнификаций в современном мире
The talk focuses on the problem of identifying political significations and political ideological spectres. Classic criteria of the “Right-Left” opposition as specified in the times of the French revolution can hardly be applied to the contemporary world. A number of positions was formulated within the modern academic community. According to these, the fundamental factors defining a political position as either “Right” or “Left” are the ones of economic, psychological and sociological nature. This talk covers some positions formulated during the last decades. In the end I claim my own version of the key factors which should be used for categorizing a political position as either “Right” or “Left”.
