Today’s sociocultural situation can be characterised as an abolition of “the classical” model of culture and the cult of high samples. The necessity for the formation of a new narration for the present is felt. The replacement of a dominating intellectual paradigm meant the transition from one cultural context to another, which is always characterised by a transformation of cultural codes and systems of values. All these dimensions, as well as the polysemanticism of the notion of “postmodernity,” cause both cultural and socio-philosophical analyses of postmodernity and its indicators in societies. Therefore, the need for an integrated approach to the problems of social changes requires an interdisciplinary arrangement of studies. The concept of “interdisciplinarity” is one of the main features of a modern scientific and intellectual activity. Thus, philosophy allows us to contemplate a problem alongside some sciences, being some kind of adequate language for understanding the specificity of the subject of study.
