Abstract

The problem of the correlation of the postmodern and consciousness can be considered in the following measurements: contemporaneity and consciousness, contemporaneity and the postmodern, the postmodern and consciousness, interference of two concepts and consciousness in the postmodern context, and the consciousness of the postmodern. Contemporaneity is a state of consciousness. It derives the strength of truthfulness not from historicity, but from urgency. The postmodern situation in each concrete society is characterised by the historical and cultural parameters, accordingly the sociocultural differences of public consciousness. Hence, a variability of a reflection of the postmodern shows in a public consciousness when approaching the given problems causes the reference to experience the tendencies in a concrete society. Today, speaking about the dynamics of the development of public consciousness, it is possible to notice the renunciation of stereotypes of the past and a movement towards both cultural and political plurality. The given tendency is expressed in the break from the modern and the movement towards the postmodern. The above-mentioned testifies to the variability of answers to the challenges of the present in non-Western countries as a consequence of the sociocultural ground’s individuality and the dynamic and reflective essence of public consciousness expressed in the social phenomena and ethoses , in particular, in the postmodern tendency as an indicator of its modification and development.
