The philosophical Prolegomena to a Normative theory of culture

Abstract. The article is a stage of the author's work on the formulation of the provisions of the Normative theory of culture as its systemic functional interpretation as a set of standards of human consciousness and social behavior. Particular attention is paid to the construction of this theory as a system with interrelated and interdependent components, while many of them are in binary opposition to each other.
Keywords. Culture, normative theory, social integration, ordinary and specialized activities, collective and individual activities, good and evil, public and private cultures.
