Abstract

This article is a continuation of a series of publications, in which author had carried out a retrospective analysis and, firstly, systematized of the consolidation-confrontational parameters of nationalhood and statehood of Ukraine, secondly, singled the complex of factors (factors of social polarization, factors of destructive / negative consolidation), which hinder the national unity and reconciliation of the Ukrainian society in the conditions of a new social reality. The aim of the research, the results of which I plan to present in this article, is to structure the consolidation-deconsolidation parameters of the national and state development of Ukraine with recognition to the several dependent coordinate systems. I plan to explain that each others reproduce of the complex (multifactor), contradictory (multi-vector) and dynamic architectonics of the societal crisis in Ukraine, which, in other hand, explains the dialectic of consolidation and confrontation in the Ukrainian nationhood. Its coordinate systems are described, in which the corresponding sections of the social crisis are manifested. The system coordinates reflect the main areas of the social system crisis (political, legal, economic, social, cultural etc.). The structural coordinates reflect such poles as: an institutional’ crisis, an interests’ and goals’ crisis, a values’ crisis, an identity’ crisis. The temporal coordinates reflect the crisis cycles of the national and state development of Ukraine. The socio-psychological coordinates allow us to consider the problem of crisis of a collective consciousness at the level of socio-psychological phenomena (behind the dominant type of social experiences and forms of socio-psychological thinking). Each ones of the crisis levels characterizes a quite specific aspects of the societal crisis, which could be considered both in relative autonomy as well as in tight interdependence with its other parties. In its combination, in each new ways, the components of the societal crisis reproduce its new quality (synergy effect). Actually, these forms manufuctortd a complex (multifactorial), contradictory (multi-vector) and dynamic architectonics of the societal crisis in Ukraine, where each phenomenon (its structural component) can be viewed both as a cause and as a result of the confrontational tendencies of the national and state development of Ukraine. The multi-factor model of the societal crisis in Ukraine is structured as a series of derived models that recreate its crisis sections in the corresponding coordinate systems, such as: contour two-dimensional model of societal crisis (system-structural coordinates); cyclic model of societal crisis (temporal coordinates); Socio-psychological model of societal crisis (socio-psychological coordinates).
