    The late Middle Ages in the history of Circassia were marked by strengthening such negative social and historical phenomenon as a slave trade.

    Social forecasting in the research field of the Russian sociology

    The scientific argument of forecasting in dynamics of social development substantially reflects one of the bases of human existence in the context of basic historicity of society. The essence of social forecasting is determined by efficiency expectations, both by the intermediate stages of a scientific observation, and by the end results in achievement of a goal. The statistics of social forecasting allows the choice of the most suitable algorithm. It in turn assumes answers to questions of accuracy of the preferred methods, cost intensity when using, quantity and frequency of measurements.

    Social inequality through a prism of classical sociology

    The paper states that the social inequality acts as the attributive characteristic of society throughout almost the whole history of its existence. There are indisputable facts supporting that there was an inequality in the social systems a millennium ago. Large-scale experiments of creation of socialist and communistic societies, including in our country, do not give the grounds to speak about full (or a little significant) overcoming a social inequality. Human society looks like the multilevel, elaborate system which is almost excluding equality of individuals, groups, layers, classes – as irreversible consequence of different reaction to various incentives of society – political, economic, social and spiritual.

    Concept "the Russian world": principles and possibilities of methodological approaches

    The paper sheds light on the existing approaches and interpretations of a concept "the Russian world". The author allocates the civilization and lingual-semiotic approaches, the religious integrative approach of Russian Orthodox Church, the liberal critical approach which is ideologically related to modern Russian "neo-Westernism" and the sociocultural approach which is going back to P.A. Sorokin's sociology. "The Russian world" as a concept is a complicated and voluminous cognitive, most likely imaginative construct with the value and semantic loading originating in the area of ethnic unconscious mentality, in nostalgia on the idealized historical past. The concept of "the Russian world" is now in a condition of crystallization and a logical shaping as a modern identification and civilization constant.

    The national - state identity and models of social behavior in Russian modern society

    The paper discusses different types of the national - state identity which cause reproduction of standard and modal models of social behavior. In modern Russian society these models act as reaction of the social actor or social group to a social situation and to external social changes in the form of set of the social actions directed to support social existence or adaptation to the social environment. Now the tendency related to overcoming an informative unilaterality, on the one hand, personal and situational and, on the other hand, – dispositional and culturological approaches of scientific research was outlined in studying social behavior. In line with this tendency the social behavior of the person is not considered as a result of pressure of a social situation or individual traits of his character, his social values, attitudes or cultural predisposition any more.

    Culture sociology in cognition of the society’s laws

    In the context of the social organization, the sociology of culture shapes its subject according to institutional complexes of social life.

    Natural and social preconditions for existence of animals and human forms of collective cohabitation

    Language as one of aspects of social cultural reality reflects ideas of a specific cultural community of structure and functioning of environment. In this context paradoxical is the identification of the word "city" at designation of territorial collective forms of existence of public insects and the spaces urbanized by the person. This paper compares structural and functional bases of both types of the collective organization of life, on the basis of which both the general preconditions of formation and intrinsic distinctions are distinguished. The general precondition of formation of collective forms of cohabitation is need of association in order to construct defensive or economic constructions that promote the best adaptation and survival of a species. Thus, collective forms of cohabitation are formed when the individual is not able to solve the arisen problem independently, i.e. there is a request for joint activity response (solidarization) in relation to external incentive. A key distinctive feature of the human cities from animal quasisocial analogs is existence of the social relations between individuals who not only actualize creation of new forms of collective accommodation, but also form a request for satisfaction of certain social requirements. At the same time social-cultural processes are primary and dominant in relation to physical shapes, being the base for formation of the human city.

Tarkovsky ("Nostalgia) and other directors, proposing the version of the response to the question raised by the director.
