POSTMODERN CIVILIZATION: SYMPTOMS OF SPIRITUAL CRISIS.
SOME RESULTS OF THE XIX INTERNATIONAL LIKHACHEV READINGS

Abstract: The article describes the global problems of the European world, which testify to the exhaustion of the project of modernity and the inevitability of the radical transition of the West to a new type of civilizational development. The symptom of the decline of the “classical” European humanism is the exhaustion and devaluation of the semantic core of the basic concepts underlying the image of man and the world. The transformation of European culture into the neoliberal phase of the postmodern, actively rejecting the spiritual and moral values of the previous stages of development, is accompanied by the expansion of the space of “moral anomie”, deformation of the functions of social institutions and the change of world-view constants that ensured spiritual integrity and great achievements European culture. In a crisis of European humanism, the spiritual “weakness” of the West can be compensated by Russian civilization, which has vast experience in confronting anti-system projects of the West and the East and has preserved the desire for “eternal” truths and values.

Keywords: culture and civilization, Christian anthropology, moral anomie, postmodern epoch, entropy of humanism, civilization matrices, future scenarios.
