Cognitive Foundations of Political Culture:
an Essay of Methodological Reflection.
In his article, the author analyzes epistemological problems of modern studies of political culture. The source of the “conflict of interpretations” of political culture, in the author’s opinion, dwells in subjectivistic or objectivistic reduction of political and cultural reality. Promising vectors of the study of political culture, as is demonstrated in the article, are outlined in the works by proponents of “post-structuralist synthesis” of social knowledge, by those who affirm communicative nature of public power. The conclusion made is to the effect that the kernel of society’s political culture is constituted by a symbolic code of political legitimation — code that presents interconnected integrity of cognitive-evaluative schemes of purpose-seeking.
