Anthropology as a metaparadigm in modern scientific knowledge
Russian State Social University, Moscow, Russia
* Corresponding author: email@example.com
The “anthropological turn” of the twentieth century, as well as the crisis of European science, the transition to a non-classical language - both in philosophy and in other areas of thought, the entry of culture into the postmodern stage - all this entailed a rethinking of the “ theme of human” itself. In the spectrum of new anthropological approaches, the question of man in the East Christian tradition has gained particular importance. Proclaimed in 1936 by Georgy Florovsky, "Neopatristic synthesis" opened the prospect of renewing the dialogue between Christianity and modernity. The paper analyzes the transformations of ideas about man and society that took place in the postmodern era. The ways of forming a new language for describing a person and society, correlating with the language of non-classical scientific discourse, are proposed. Based on an analysis of the latest research, the author considers the possibility of using the language of the spiritual tradition of Christianity to describe forms of social and anthropological reality, which in our time can no longer be described in the language of classical discourse. The work also substantiates the paradigmatic status of the anthropology of East Christian discourse.
