Keywords: culture, culturelosofy, methodology, methodological scheme, a cultural imperative, the subject of philosophy, a form of the сulture awareness


In modern culture appeared methodological research approaches and methods that require systematization and generalization. This need stems from the fact that on the basis of knowledge resulting from the use of different methods, it is impossible to come to a common understanding of the culture, and thus to predict its further development. The article offers one of the possible options for such a unifying strategy and is designated as methodological scheme of culture evolution. This methodological scheme takes two key aspects of existence culture, its historical development and its vectors of values. The main structural elements of such a scheme are: meaningful aspect that determines the intrinsic characteristics of each historical stage, activity aspect that reflects the main tendencies of manifestation and active realization of culture, form of awareness that can be expressed through the attitudinal orientation, cultural imperative, that sum up  the value of culture orientations. But the methodological scheme based on initial philosophical reflection, and thus of the methodological situation in philosophy depends on the possibility of developing a research strategy for culture. The plan marked a transformation of philosophy - the philosophy to culturelosophy.
