European integration at the crossroads. Part 3.
The process of European integration is in crisis. This crisis is not the result of social, political and economic tendencies that have emerged only recently. In fact, the inner contradictions of European integration have been apparent since its beginning.
Key words: Europe, Russia, integration, society, analysis.
 
Devyatov R.S.
The problematic field of national cultures in the era of globalization
The article substantiates the possibility and necessity of implementing the state cultural policy taking into account international experience. The existing prerequisites for a decrease in the role of national states and the fact that globalization has created a cultural context for the rapid and effective exchange of cultural content entails inevitable changes in the very attitude of the state and society to culture. It is concluded that the attention to cultural policy on the part of the state and the main political figures will constantly increase as the globalization processes intensify.
Key words: cultural policy, models of cultural policy, national cultures, globalization.

A new phenomenon of the unicorn: the power of myth and its ability to be reborn in old images
Mythology allows one to express such ideas of a person about the world around him and about himself, which not only have amazing accuracy, while maintaining imagery. Mythology is also able to provide a key not to a separate perception of the described phenomena, but to present them holistically and in a certain hierarchy. It is no coincidence that myths were created not only in antiquity, but also in subsequent times. Then the myths took on a political or economic character. Nowadays, economic myths dominate, which use images that have been tested for thousands of years. Among them we find the image of the unicorn, which is now used to designate successful companies.
Key words: history, culture, economics, mythology, organizational culture, mass consciousness, unicorn.
