Culturology: Subject and Structure

Abstract. The concept of culturology is based on the idea of its integrative character. Its establishment as a research and educative discipline in Russia is analysed within the system of social sciences and humanities. The examination of its methodological approaches and cognitive strategies reveals a specificity of subject and structure of culturology and existing correspondence between this and other disciplines concerned with culture.

Key words: culture, culturology, integrative research direction, multidisciplinary research, cognition method, applied cultural research, discourse, inter- and trans-disciplinarity
