Abstract

The monograph analyzes social imitation as a social fact of Russian life, which allows making certain generalizations regarding not only the prospects of overcoming the imitation syndrome that has taken hold of the society in the post-transformation period, but also to reveal the real tendencies of creativity as the near future. The author shows that social simulation constructs simulative political and social realities in which norms of social creativity and creative identity are assessed as undesirable, deviant, and for the purposes of creative modernization one should form a consensus in the society about the new creative humanism as the ideology of national revival and development. The monograph is addressed to teachers, students, graduate students, as well as to all those who study this important and very interesting problem.
