Abstract

The categories of social success­unsuccess are examined, the critical going is offered near this binary opposition as to the out­of­date form of social discourse and systems of self­presentations and self­definition. In exchange nomothetic principle, principle of ideographic allowing more exactly to describe a subject in the systems of social cooperation is offered. General aim hired – to show, whatever the usual, standard, generally accepted, popular formulas of success have and can not have no universal value on the essence. In this connection it is necessary to subject to criticism so widespread conception of binarism, that in an obvious or hidden kind is in grounds to the traditional, conservative culture and philosophy. This position can come forward as founding for new social epistemology, in that binarism not abolished, but becomes one of possible variants, that is suitable for description of a limit number of social cooperations. General aim hired – to show, whatever the usual, standard, generally accepted, popular formulas of success have and can not have no universal value on the essence. In this connection it is necessary to subject to criticism so widespread conception of binarism, that in an obvious or hidden kind is in grounds to the traditional, conservative culture and philosophy. This position can come forward as founding for new social epistemology, in that binarism not abolished, but becomes one of possible variants, that is suitable for description of a limit number of social cooperations. The modern theories of alternative sociality do not suppose the presence of single criteria of estimation of different, extraordinarily various vital scenarios. What be more, all possible vital scenarios can be described out of scopes of paradigm approach and considered as a single multivalent structure is the semantic field, where any certain choice depends only on individuality of everybody. By the result of consideration of binary opposition «success­failure» the radical rethinking must become, if pleasingly, destruction and de­construction of principle of binarism and orientations on initially set, and in fact, constructed public ideals, understanding of that circumstance, that these values are not that another, as a result of fully certain historical type of public device. It is thus impossible not to notice that society in the motion constantly products the new forms of social practices and sociocultural discourse, that even if does not change him fully, then in any event, substantially influence on his development. The account of this circumstance must be related to abandonment from traditional research receptions and creation by new social epistema, as only in this case social knowledge is able to save the heuristic potential.
