Patriotism as a Value: Components of Sociological Analysis (Comparative Characteristics of Russia and Serbia)

Cover Page


The article presents basic conceptual and empirical interpretations of the notion “patriotism”, used in sociological research on various subjects. On the one hand, the authors point out the complexity of this notion used by various disciplines, which becomes even more complex due to its obvious ideological connotation. The latter shifted its content and functional accents in the post-soviet period, but never lost its weight, which actually stands in the way of reaching a compromise by researchers in their theoretical interpretations of patriotism. On the other hand, the article demonstrates the “diagnostic” significance of empirical “readings” of the patriotic moods among the youth: it presents empirical indicators of assessing patriotism as a social goal, basic research approaches to the study of patriotism are systematized, and a comparative analysis of patriotic moods among students in Russia and Serbia is carried out.
