We face a highly semiotic mechanisms
create a certain idealization of reality.
With his model of cultural-historical types of acts Nicholas
Yakovlevich Danilevsky (1822-1885) in the book "Russia and Europe"
(Danilevsky N. I. Russia and Europe. M., 1991). Work as if
starts from two ideas. First-is the desire to objectify
the process of cultural-historical development, to explore with the help of analogue
the methodology of the natural Sciences the objects of the Humanities. And it has
this review morphology. "Morphological principle is perfect in
nature" (p. 158). The second idea-it is the protection of the Slavs as a special
cultural-historical type.
Civilization it was considered as the most General concept, all other
the parties are contained in it, including religion. "Civilization is the concept
more extensive than science, art, religion, political, civil,
economic and community development, taken in isolation, for the civilization
all it encloses" (P. 129).
N. Danilevsky protests against the recognition of European development
as a universal. Civilization destroys the special form
dependencies and replaces them with known forms of freedom, but this does not mean that
the latter are universal, while the forms of dependence --
national. He believes that both forms of dependence, and forms of freedom "is equal to
national and determine each other" (P. 119).
