Abstract
The object of the article is to present as possible and productive the interpretation of today’s Russia as postmodern rather than «transitive» society. At the first stage of the advancement toward the object, attention is fixed on such phenomena and processes essential for nowaday Russia, which “transitological” concepts either ignore or fail to duly comprehend. The experience of postmodernistic interpretation of postcommunism already accumulated in foreign literature, is analyzed at the second stage. By criticizing, then, the dominant trends of postmodernism, an attempt is made, at the third stage, to outline a “working model” of postmodernism, that can be used for the study of Russian postcommunism.
