Themed issues in 2017

Changing Societies & Personalities” is an international, peer-reviewed quarterly journal, published in English by the Ural Federal University. CS&P examines how rapid societal-level changes are reshaping individual-level beliefs, motivations and values — and how these individual-level changes in turn are reshaping societies. The interplay of personality traits and sociocultural factors in defining motivation, deliberation, action and reflection of individuals requires a combination of theoretical and empirical knowledge. Since an interdisciplinary approach is needed to understand the causes and consequences of the contemporary world’s changing socio-political institutions, moral values, and religious beliefs, the journal welcomes theoretical and empirical contributions from a wide range of perspectives in the context of value pluralism and social heterogeneity of (post)modern society.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Value implications of interactions between socio-political transformations and personal self-identity,
  • Changes in value orientations, materialist and post-materialist values,
  • Moral reasoning and behavior,
  • Variability and continuity in the election of styles of moral regime and/or religious identity,
  • The moral bases of political preferences and their elimination,
  • Social exclusion and inclusion,
  • Post-secular religious individualism,
  • Tolerance and merely ‘tolerating’: their meanings, varieties and fundamental bases,
  • Ideologies of gender and age as variables in political, moral, religious and social change,
  • Educational strategies as training for specific social competences,
  • Social and existential security.

The journal publishes original research articles, forum discussions, review articles and book reviews.
