Introducing the concept of “festivity”, the attention is focused on the life-purpose ideals suggested by intelligentsia as a culture-forming grounds for the development of Russia. Methodologically determinative for this research are the works of D. V. Pivovarov, S. S. Horuzhy, as well as the works of religious philosophers of the silver age. The scientific novelty lies in the presented experience of culturological analysis of historical situation of the silver age, and the religious search of intelligentsia through the methodological prism of the concept of synergy and theory of “festivity”. The category of “festivity” allows accenting attention of the forms of the Absolute and approaches towards it, proposed by intelligentsia as a goal of cultural development.

Abstract: The subject of this research is the Korean “genuine” landscapes (chingyong sansuhwa) by the painter Kyomjae Jeong Seon (1676-1759). The object of this research is the proposed by the South Korean art historians theories of what became a source of formation of this trend of landscape painting. The author reviews the works dedicated to the establishment of chingyong sansuhwa, and analyzes the processes that could affect the desire of the painter Kyomjae Jeong Seon to depict the Korean nature. This article is first in the national and foreign science to examine the existing in the South Korean art history discussion on the causes of emergence of chingyong sansuhwa by Jeong Seon. For classification of the suggested by the art historians versions, the author applied the comparative method and the method of critical analysis. The conclusion was made that the South Korean experts express versatile opinions what has become the cause of establishment of landscape chingyong sansuhwa; while the representatives of the “theory of internal causes” anchored by Choe Eun-sun insist that chingyong sansuhwa is the phenomenon of local origin, formed as a result of development of the Korean Neo-Confucianism that contributes to formation of the “national” mentality among the elites and gain of confidence in the distinctness of their native culture. The supporters of the “theory of external causes” are willing to believe that the “genuine” landscapes have emerged in the process of reconsideration of the new philosophical and landscaping practices of the Chinese Dynasties Ming and Qing. South Korean researchers differently assess the level of correlation between the Chinese and Korean landscape; however, the representatives of the “theory of internal causes” see the belittling of the Chinese influence.

Abstract: The subject of this research is the consideration of peculiarities of acculturation of Muslims as a process unfolded in the European non-Muslim societies, associated with impossibility of achieving a full mutual social recognition even upon the condition of gaining citizenship of a certain country, in other words, naturalization. The constraining factor towards that is the methodological nationalism, separation and marginalization, which are an inevitable result of the pursuance of multiculturalism and proclivity for leaving the ghetto, as well as understanding of acculturation as a unilateral process. The scientific novelty lies in reconsideration of the traditional forms and strategies of acculturation in the context of situation of social recognition of the Muslims in the accepting societies of European states. The main methods are the examination and analysis of academic publications related to this problematic, as well as their systemic comparison for revealing the peculiarities inherent to the aforementioned process. A conclusion is made on the importance of civic equality for the mutual social recognition, as well as the need for bilateral changes of identity for solution of the problems emerging in the process of acculturation.
