Study them from this point of view provides a platform for deepening our understanding of values and life-meaningful orientations of the modern ordinary consciousness.

They carry the personality traits of postmodernism, which is characterized by a return from the abstract forms of understanding the world visually to the neck; the weakening of the volitional beginnings in human activities, and the critical attitude.
