Sociodynamics of Culture: a Variety of Possibilities

Abstract. The article discusses conceptual approaches which focus on sociodynamics of culture as a large range of possibilities of developing orders of social organization, structures and forms of human communities’ life activities, combining modernism and traditionalism as constant and interbalancing development trends. The author interprets a typological difference between Western and Eastern cultures and a difference in their dominating social tasks.

Key words. Culture, society, sociodynamics of culture, evolutionism, cyclism, social synergrtics, modernization, tradition, social tasks, the West, the East
