“Anthropological Turn” in Social Theory

Authors : Guzel K. Saykina and Anton S. Krasnov

Abstract: The purpose of the study is to show the role of philosophical principle of anthropologism, constituted in the situation of “anthropological turn” during the first half of the 20th century, in cognitive and institutional organization of modern social-humanitarian knowledge. It was proved that, despite the fact that substantively and methodologically anthropologism is positioned today only in a negative way. It discovers certain points of growth and reveals its positive resource, especially outside the philosophical spiritual and practical space. The importance of anthropologism principle as the factor of differentiation and integration of social and humanitarian knowledge is shown. It is proved that modern anthropologism is capable of a theoretical situation production, on the other side of social and human opposition. Anthropologism is an important principle in view of the fact that modern social nature reveals its anthropic character. All this allows us to put forward the idea that an “anthropological turn” was noted in social theory during the last two or three decades which may be able to overcome an extreme old anthropologism.
