The relevance of the presented research is conditioned by the need to comprehend the semantic and value bases of the coexistence of human civilization in the vector of a solidary community, striving to accept each other in all its singularity and uniqueness of the sociocultural life in the context of aggravation of social problems caused by various aspects of social inequality strengthening. The comprehension of this issue is very urgent today, since it allows us to build a system of counterbalances to the rapidly growing social antagonisms allowing not only to overcome many of them, but also to anticipate them. At the forefront in this context comes the reflection of the Insider vs Outsider opposition in the situation of increasing need for a solidarity community.
The purpose of the research is to understand the mechanisms of overcoming the alienation of the opposition Insider vs Outsider in the face of growing need, on the one hand, in solidarity, tolerant being, and on the other hand, in preserving the unique traditional cultural patterns of everyone, in which in the foreground is the search for a balance allowing not only to find the common strengthening cohesion, but also to manifest a difference without exacerbating tension in the relationship. These orientations are vital in the current situation, due to the increased intensity of social interaction in all its manifestations, both local and civilizational, exacerbating conflicts at all levels.
The basic method of research for determining all aspects of this problem is the socio-cultural analysis expanded by the possibilities of philosophical reflection.
The presented concept allows us to focus attention on the sociocultural aspects of the diversity of unique cultural patterns as the basis of social cohesion in the conditions of increasing multiculturalism both in Russia and in the whole world. Increasing mobility is the basic characteristic of our time, further exacerbating the manifestation of multiculturalism on a personal and social levels, thus showing that it increases the need for comprehension of the mechanisms for maintaining a balance between personal and social, general and unique, in that it allows not only to distinguish and compare Insider vs Outsider, but to extinguish the tension within this opposition.
Comprehension of this problem is of great importance, both on personal and social levels, since each person has a need for social incarnation, where the individual's possibility for not only feeling himself as a part of the whole but also for showing his unique nature to the world becomes paramount. Thus, the findings and conclusions of the study indicate that the manifestation of the common and unique is the essence of human nature, and maintaining a balance in preserving the common and unique is the basis for preserving the human species, in which Insider vs Outsider opposition is the basic model of human civilization identifying the truly human nature.
