Research on Cultural Values — a Common Goal of Humanitarian Sciences

2008. Vol. 5. No. 2. P. 25–36 [issue contents]
The goal of this paper is to explore the role of culture in the process of civilization and development of various countries. It is argued that scientific research on the effect of social institutions, culture, value systems on the development of innovative economics may improve founding principles of the state politics and environment that facilitates creativity of Russian people. Culture is argued to be accepted by an individual at three levels, specifically: 1) public opinions and moods, 2) concepts and aptitudes, and 3) values; furthermore, a schematic model of a culture is suggested. Following the work of G. Hofstede, R. Inglehart and S. Schwartz four possible scales of measuring cultures are suggested: individualism — collectivism, freedom (equality) — hierarchy (order), openness to changes — conservatism (traditions), self-actualization (self-accomplishment) — harmony (equilibrium).
