The subject of this research is the analysis of the absurd as a spatial constant of glamorous social from the perspective of philosophical reflection. In modernity, absurd turned into a universe by capturing all of the spheres of social and subjecting human life to its logic. Having claimed itself ontologically, the absurd affected the gnoseological and axiological constants of the being of personality, which significantly transformed both, the subjective and objective. In the social we can observe dual strategies, where the priority belongs to the Nothing. Moreover, the ideology of glamor itself turns out to be absurd because of postulating the endlessness of beauty, youth, and wealth within the limits of human life. The author determines that the absurd has many modi of manifestations in modernity, being born in the gaps of being between the Something and the Nothing. The existence of the absurd has initially been set; however in a positive aspect, illustrating the Nothing, it contributes into development (by contradiction), while in negative aspect – leads to chaos, nonsense, and crisis. Glamorous format of the absurd encourages essences and actions, covering them with an alluring fleur, which results in the failures in the functionality of the consciousness and a routine situation of the eternal. The analysis of the absurd demonstrated its multifacetedness and expanding scale, which allows speaking about a universe of the absurd in the space of the glamorous. The subjective and objective of the absurd are dialectically connected with each other, as well as they justify each other. The paradoxicality of this situation consists in the fact that the Nothing in a form of the absurd acquires a status of the real, beginning to live its own life.

Keywords: echo, intentionality, paradoxicality, simulation, oxymoron, absurd, ideology of the glamor, feedback, glamorous person, manipulation
