Abstract

This article analyzes the theoretical and methodological bases of researching  problems of cultural identity crisis in Ukraine and the degree of scientific elaboration of the problem in modern Ukrainian philosophy. Proceedings of modern Ukrainian scientists that was devoted to the problem of identity, especially aimed at highlighting of national­ethnic aspects of the problem. Much less attention is paid to the researchers of own cultural identity dimension in Ukraine. We can say that the problem of cultural identity crisis in modern Ukraine in the field of philosophical thought proper und  erstanding has not yet received. Although exacerbation of this crisis in modern Ukrainian being observed from the time of its attainment status of an independent country and acquires its peak against the backdrop of recent political events. Almost every Ukrainian researcher today calls to consider the phenomenon of identity in a particular coordinate system which established by processes of globalization. However, it is understood that the phenomenon of identity enrolling in specific historical framework, so the researchers limited its understanding by specific socio­cultural events. Therefore, we believed that’s necessary to determine the degree of awareness of the crisis of cultural identity at the contemporary Ukrainian scientists researching. The problem of cultural identity today, as ever, predetermines the need for Ukraine to become a space of intercultural dialogue. That is why, while investigating this problem, scientists pay a lot of attention to such concepts as: "multiculturalism", "megapontility", "globalization", "cultural relativism," etc. For contemporary Ukrainian researchers it is characteristic to consider the existential conditionality of identity, as well as its plural character. One can not but agree with V. Voropaeva's idea that: "Identity should be studied in the context of interactive, perceptual and communicative, existential, functional, mental speech processes of the person's mental development. ... the structuring of identity means a certain integrity and orderliness of the deployment of identity as a phenomenon of functional and existential existence. " Therefore, the concept of "identity" in modern philosophical discourse, in the broadest sense, is defined as the integrity of the human person in the psychophysical, socio-cultural and national-ethnic dimensions of his being.
