Culture and modernity

This section presents discussions of the general question of culture in the modern world placing the specific issues of Caucasus in the broad context of the worldwide culture of today.
Various approaches to these issues and different points of view are represented by articles and abstracts from the works of artists, philosophers and scientists. However, they are united by one main theme: along with the rapid development of scientific and technical progress one can see an active process of spiritual and intellectual regression of a human being.
The conflict between material and spiritual, between mind and conscience, between technologies and person has become particularly sharp today. This sharpness is perceived as a direct consequence of the aggressive advance of global unification and the resistance of the traditional national cultures.
The audience is offered both classical and modern texts.
