SECURITY STUDIES IN SOCIAL-PHILOSOPHIC CONTEXT

  • Oleksiy Poltorakov
Keywords: security, national security, society, social studies, scientific discipline

Abstract

Actuality of the study is caused by the fact that security provision as a problem of social-political character is of more supplemented with its social-cultural one. It is connected both with processes of “post-modern” society (“risk society” by U. Beck) development and complication of social being as a whole. In the circles of social studies there are discussions on the nature of security and on the subject of security studies. Basic “security” category as well as “national security” term are trans-disciplinary and synthetic ones of political and social sciences, military and economic ones. It makes to interpret the category quite widely. The stable social studies definition of “security” still does not exist. “National security” as a specific category is a part of “security” concept, but the “security” category is being integrated from adjacent fields of social sciences: from the political sciences (where the “security” category together with the “national interests” one is the key one) on the one hand, and from the military sciences – from the other. “(National) security” studies as a scientificpractical discipline are quite new. However, “securitology” as a scientific-theoretical discipline – of inter-disciplinary character – still has not been fully formed and has not achieved serious theoretical-methodological basis and slim structure.
