Ilyasovа R. Language Personality in the Context of Interaction of Language and Culture / annotation

Raisa S. Ilyasovа – Candidate of Philology, associate professor of the Department of General Linguistics of Chechen State University. Grozny, Russian Federation.

This article discusses the linguistic personality - the phenomenon that is undoubtedly social, but it also has an individual aspect. The linguistic personality is a concrete person with his own consciousness, free will, his complex inner world and individual attitude to the environment. Culture identity allows the ethnos to preserve and carry through its centuries its ethnic identity and originality, cultural codes that, through the millennia, rediscover the spiritual secrets and treasures of distant ancestors for the descendants fill them with new meanings and ideas consistent with time. The universality of culture allows people to find a common language of communication and cultural interaction with other nations, primarily neighboring ones, their place in the cultural spectrum of a multinational state. The cultural isolation of a people leads to the degeneration of its culture, the loss of identity - to cultural assimilation. Today, a linguistic person is understood as a specific speaker of a language capable of understanding, creating and reproducing texts, it is a person who is able, based on the analysis of the texts produced by her, to reflect the vision of the surrounding reality.The doctrine of the linguistic personality is developed by means of the scientific paradigm, which is accompanied by the use of various methods, techniques, methods of research of language material. In each case, their choice is determined by goals and objectives.It is established that each such personality is formed on the basis of the acquisition by a particular person of all the linguistic wealth created by predecessors. The language of a particular person still consists of general and individual language features.

Uznarodov D., Uznarodov I. Black Sea Region in the Strategy of the European Union in the XXI Century / annotation

The article considers the policy of the European Union in the Black sea region in the XXI century as a part of the general policy of the EU in the post-Soviet space. The policy in the region is analyzed by the example of its main components – the European neighbor-hood policy, the Eastern partnership, as well as taking into account the policy in the South Caucasus. The article also discusses reasons for the deterioration of relations between Russia and European Union in connection with the policy of the EU in the Black sea region. Attention is drawn to the fact that it happened after the activation of the EU policy in the post-Soviet space, what inevitably came into conflict with foreign policy priorities of Russian Federation. It is concluded that in spite of a fairly active policy in the region, the European Union failed to involve in its orbit all states of the region. It is noted that today the EU continues to struggle for strategic influence in the region. Therefore, there remain serious contradictions between Russia and the European Union, and therefore we should not expect the improving relations between them in the near future.

Key words: European Union, Russia, Black Sea region

Petrova Y., Shevkun Y. The Historical Aspects of the Development of the Black Sea Region / annotation

The Black Sea region had passed a long way of historical development even before the emergence of Greek cities. There are evidences of ancient mythology, ancient historians, toponymy and archaeological sources of these remote times, though they are still unclear in many respects. In this historical period, on the northern shores of the Black Sea, the colonists-Greeks settlements arise, in whose face the local population enters into permanent intercourse with representatives of the ancient slave society for the first time. The centuries-old history of the Greek cities of the Black Sea region, their long relationship with the Scythians and other inhabitants of the region, the complex interrelationship of two cultures different both in origin and in inner content had led to the new historical and cultural situation in our South, in the conditions of which later the East Slavic tribes and the first Russian state had been forming. The first acquaintance of the brave Aegean navigators with inhospitable shores of Pontus was reflected in the myth of the Argonautic expedition. Then the myths of Iphigenia in Taurida, Achille on the island of Levka, the stay of Odysseus in the gloomy land of the Cimmerians followed. The final link is the fantastic geography of the Logographers with legends of the Hyperboreans and the struggle of the Arimaspians with vultures. Let us try to reveal the historical reality veiled by the fantasy of myth. Let`s establish the connection between the North Black Sea Region and the ancient states of the Mediterranean with the help of concrete historical evidence.

Key words: the Black Sea Region, historical development, ancient civilizations

Gurieva L. Conceptual Foundations of Social Responsibility of Corporate Structures: Historical Aspect / annotation

Lira K. Gurieva – Doctor of Economics, professor, Vladikavkaz branch of Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation. Vladikavkaz, Russian Federation.

The article considers the evolution of the social responsibility of business in the historical period up to the XXI century. The study shows that in its development, corporate social responsibility in countries with developed market economies has passed a series of hysterical stages. In the period from the 1900’s to the 1930’s the first stage of emergence and theoretical understanding of social responsibility of business in the countries of the developed capitalism passed. The second stage (from the 1930’s to the 1950’s) was the stage of institutionalization of corporate social responsibility. The third stage (from the 1950’s to the middle of 1970’s) was characterized by the flourishing of traditional philanthropy (or charity). Companies tried to maximize business and social activity, focusing on helping the most vulnerable categories of population (children and people with disabilities) or cultural institutions. At the fourth stage (from the middle of 1970’s to the 1980’s), the strategic philanthropy of business which is characterized by readiness to get optimum profit instead of maximum and also by the focal approach to the solution of social problems (aiming at the solution of the problem, but not on fight against its results) was created. The desire of business to coordinate the solution of social problems with strategic goals of the company is the base of this approach. From the middle of 1980’s to the early 2000’s, the concept of corporate citizenship was created. At the local level, the corporate citizenship is manifested in the form of social investments of business, which means the joint work of the commercial, non-profit and public sectors for the purpose of solving the urgent social and economic problems of local communities.
