The article is based on the report «Postmodernity as Postcoloniality: Metamorphosis of Civilizational Transit» at the 10th South-Russian Politological Convent in South Federal University 27-31.10.2020. Civilization is seen as a dynamic structure, and history as an evolutionary process, defined and manifested in the transformation of social mentality. The complexity of the current social environment and organisms living in it is a natural result of development. The transit experienced by the modern civilization to the postmodern order of multiple, loosely formalized sovereigns. Postcoloniality as a rapidly growing universal problem is regarded as a specific aspect of postmodernity.
