Authentic Development: Key Aspects of the Concept

Cover Page

Cite item


The article focuses on the social, political, philosophical and economic aspects of the concept of authentic development. Besides being based on Russia’s historical experience and socio-cultural values, the project relies on certain socio-humanitarian scientific studies conducted by domestic scholars of previous generations. By applying interdisciplinary and systematic approaches, the author is able to map out not only the socio-political and humanitarian components of the concept, but also a whole complex of problems the project is aimed to solve.
