Globalization and problems of developing ethnic culture (based on information of the Kabardino-Balkarian republic of the Russian Federation)
AbstractThis article looks at the key aspects of the evolution of today’s global culture based on incorporation of the ethnic culture of Kabardino-Balkaria into the general context of integration relations. According to the author, the practical, moral, and aesthetic experience of the people expressed in ethnic culture manifests itself as the primary foundation of multivector interaction with other components of the new format of world culture currently evolving. This is prompted by the social-historical nature of ethnic cultures, their “accumulative” nature, and the ability to preserve and consolidate the socially important achievements of the nation’s activity. At the same time, globalization processes are stimulating the appearance of new forms and ways for culture to function, which is leading not only to content-value changes within it, but also to its more active influence on the social processes.
