<< Inner and Outer Determinants of Innovations, Reproduction and Traditions: Synthetic Approach

Inn0vations, Reproductions, Tradions and Youth: Synthetic Approach

Aleksey Melnikov (Orlovskaya region administration, Orel, Russia)



It is shown in the context of metaphysical semiotics and from the positions of synthetic approach that reproduction of generations through symbiosis of innovations and traditions of various social, professional, confessional, ethnic, etc. groups, peoples and nations lies in the development of any civilization society. The research of age societal qualification groups points to the fact that youth as being compared with other layers of population possesses the abilities to the hyper-early education, creation, self-renewal, self-definition and self-realization, which should be developed since the prenatal period, babyhood and early childhood as stages of age qualification development of social creature. It stimulates young people to display spontaneity as the overstep of limits, connection of personal and societal, earthly and cosmic. These features and peculiarities of generic symbolic creature are being considered as inner determinants of innovations that are in conformity with such outer determinant of innovations as a great need in creative people that is inherent in post-industrial civilization.

The inner determinants are in certain contradictions with traditions of peoples and nations. It is underlined that a new generation should strive for accepting a historically formed mentality as a most important factor, which is an inner determinant of working out innovations, and to reproduce actively the latter with taking into account its betterment and development. The foregoing shows the necessity and need in stimulation contacts formation at different levels of society and state between the representatives of first, second and third age in order to establish direct and back ties for constructing deep social mechanisms of elaboration of opportune and effective innovations in all spheres of societal life. It could be asserted that these conditions make youth take an active part in working out and realization of innovations, which are closely tied with the mentality of various groups of population, peoples and nations of this or that country. The objectives of youth movements in Russia are outlined and discussed in the context of the triad “innovations <--> reproductions <--> traditions.
