  • Michail Murashkin Dnipropetrovsk State University of Internal Affairs
Keywords: OTHER, postmodern, religion, mysticism, culture


The aim of the study is to clarify and shed light on the phenomenon of OTHER postmodernism, the importance and significance of its characteristics as another within man himself, which regulates and purifies what is in human nature, which is reflected in religious and mystical culture and art. Also on the materials of psychology, as a parallel with OTHER postmodern, the phenomenon of compensatory enlightenment, the importance and significance of its characteristics as the spontaneous loss of insignificant, unimportant, shallow thoughts and vanity that exists in human nature. The importance and significance of compensatory enlightenment is demonstrated by the example of the connection with the transcendence of philosophical culture, as well as religious-mystical and aesthetic-artistic cultures. When we speak of the transcendence of philosophical culture, we mean the consideration by this culture of those states of man which cannot be reliably conveyed in words, but which are nevertheless presented in documentary as higher states of consciousness. The methodology of obtaining new knowledge is based on a comparative method of research, collecting the characteristics of another postmodern and inductive reasoning in this regard. Documentary texts are compared, generalizations of these texts are found. At the same time, different human states are compared on the examples of religious and mystical culture. The scientific novelty lies in the fact that for the first time such a phenomenon of human nature as the recognition of one’s own other within oneself is considered, which can be recorded in such categories as "compensatory enlightenment", "transcendent", "numinous". , "Sacred". The subject of research is considered in connection with the transcendence of philosophical culture, with such areas of culture as religious-mystical and aesthetic-artistic. Conclusions. It has been found that the other post-modern, as the inner recognition of one’s own other within oneself, can be understood as a compensatory enlightenment, which is a non-negative phenomenon of human nature. Another postmodern is related to the creative process at the stage of "maturation", in which a person destroys his outdated personality. This is highlighted in the demonstration of the transcendence of philosophy, as well as religious and mystical culture.
