  • Viktor Ye. Yelenskyy

Abstract

At the end of the twentieth century. the realization that the inexhaustibility of the conflict-related nature of religion affects not only the less affected by the modernization of the civilizational habitats of the planet, but also the main regional actors of this process, is gaining more and more strength. After the advent of S. Huntington's work, even the most consistent critiques of the theory of collision of civilizations as the main conflict axis of contemporary global development are still forced to recognize the seriousness of the religious factor and release him some part of the space in their own theoretical constructions and in their understanding of the present.
