The methodological program of social and cultural study of sociality

Abstract. The article discusses the crisis situation in sociology and, in this regard, proposes a number of ideas aimed at building a methodological concept of sociality. It is noted that the crisis in sociology is caused by the transition of sociological research to interdisciplinary research. The principles (methodological, cultural-historical, phenomenological) that characterize the author's approach are formulated. This approach is compared with the sociological one. In the latter, four characteristics are distinguished: 1) an evaluation characteristic of sociality and an indication of the type of social action aimed at changing sociality, 2) a description of the mass behavior of people and the social order that determines this behavior, 3) a focus on the study of sociality and a description of the "social nature", 4) consideration of sociality only as a phenomenon of modern culture (the author contrasts this approach with the cultural and historical interpretation of sociality). In conclusion, the author outlines the stages of research and construction of the methodological concept of sociality.

Keywords. Crisis, sociology, principles, sociality, phenomenon, interdisciplinary approach, concept, methodology, social order.
