AbstractThe purpose of the research is study of conflict between the secular humanism and traditions in modern Russia, and the search of ways of solution to the conflict. Secular humanism is the ideological core of the globalization process. And it is the product of the Faustian civilization of the West, which is extremely desacral and spiritless one. This civilization translates its cultural codes through the forced modernization and breaks the traditional structures of non-Faustian cultures. It is the "managed pseudo-morphs." Post-historical West must to translate its cultural codes to extend the life of civilization. Russia wants to preserve its cultural identity, so it has to overcome the challenges of managed pseudo-morph. The best way is come back to the tradition that best preserved in the Church. Today the patristic heritage requires neo-patristic synthesis. It’s not only phenomenon of the existential theology. Neo-patristic synthesis is the way of understanding by the society its traditional values. It is a cultural inoculation against unification, proposed Faustian civilization.
