Organic concept of truth as the basis of cultural identity

Philosophical and cultural studies

The core of cultural identity consists in national consciousness which is built in the course of familiarizing with domestic philosophical culture as a certain system of values and ideals. The truth in the system of universal values and ideals plays a key role in the process of self-identity. The article reveals for the first time the national concept of truth, produced by an informal community of russian organicists and cosmists. This concept corresponds to the calls of the modern era with its vital need to reorient the world outlook from contemplative (mechanistic) one to actively dialectical (organic) one.
