Democracy presupposes people’s mutual recognition as equally valuable and individually different. People’s individual specific features are largely determined by peculiarities of their cultures. What, then, about cultures whose values are hardly compatible with the democratic principle of mutual recognition? with democracy in its West-Atlantic historical variant? Is their modernization compatible with democratization? Thorough wording and substantial interpretation of such questions, search for ways and means of answering them make the contents of this article.
