Abstract

When the term "nationalism" is mentioned, then people with different political and social experiences, respectively, have different connotations that cover a very wide range. For some, nationalism is a positive and practical phenomenon of social consciousness, in which man is self-affirming as a citizen and a member of a nation. For another (which is probably more familiar with the history of nationalism and political speculation on it), nationalism is a manifestation of intolerance and limited thinking. Such a dualistic range of values ​​of nationalism as a term is recognized by almost all authors of research on this topic. The history of this phenomenon makes it possible to look at nationalism as broadly as possible.
