OPPORTUNITIES AND BOUNDARIES OF A MODERN SELF-JUSTIFICATION STRATEGY IN THE DISCOURSE ON MODERNITY
Author - Levytskyy V.S
Abstract: the article analyzes the evolution of the modernization discourse, in which, as in one of the mainstream for the modern mind, there is not only the constitution of Modernity, but also this mind itself. The discourse begins with classical theories of modernization, which protect an universal understanding of modernization. The civilizational turn of S. Eisenstadt opens up the possibilities of deconstructing universalist theories of modernization and substantiating the plurality of modernities. Such systemic transformations not only point to the correction of modernization theories, but also indicate profound changes in the self-understanding of Modernity, the principles of rationality and forms of identity.
Key words: Modernity, universality, theory of modernization, discourse, the multiplicity of Modernity.
