Title REVISION OF THE THEORY OF MASS SOCIETY AS PRECONDITION OF RATIONAL APPROACHES OF SOCIAL MOVEMENTS
Author(-s) Khlebnikov I.V.
Abstract Contemporary state of the former significant mass movement theory was explored. Theory of mass movements was reconsidered by the champions of rational approach with its own methodology and scientific means. Their assertions evolved as an opposed scientific approaches. The link between views, succession of movements in time and aspiration toward the theoretical synthesis were analyzed. Slow process of theoretical development of cultural and emotional dimension of social movements is renewed. Since contention is real a network of cultural contacts and personal preferences change links between events and affect to mass activity. A start point to critic of mass movement theory was a wide equation of characteristics of social problems with social movements. There was a necessity to harmonize renewed theoretical positions to historical reality. Unfortunately it was hardly impossible so there were a lot of preconditions to theoretical synthesis of approaches.
