Hanna Pokotylo. This is culture that will strengthen new Ukraine (from the sphere of culturological views). In 80th anniversary of Mykhailo Hrushevsky’s death. P. 827-831
Mykhailo Hrushevsky had obviously been great figure of Ukrainian culture. Universality of his personality, productivity of his research-works, activity in the state matters have proven Hrushevsky’s efforts as historian, culturologist, literature expert, art scholar, ethnologist, fictionist, critic, organizer of science and statesman. Truly, he had belonged to a type of Renaissance persons. Forwarding national idea as a dominant one in his work, Hrushevsky had convincingly claimed that pro-Ukrainian attitudes still contained ancient sources of people’s history, language, traditions, millennia of unbroken existence. He had trusted in the fact, that history of the people and folk culture belonged to inseparable entities. History – in Hrushevsky’s view – is the process of people’s self-realization with unique psycho-physical and spiritual characteristics. He had emphasized that world culture realized itself only through national cultures, as in the case of universal values expressed by means of national ones. Concentrated expression for this unity of national and universal matters he had seen in L. Ukrainka’s and O. Oles’ creations. National cultural development had been determined by him as a natural integration of artistic and human values into universal cultural evolution. Mastering of the native language has played quite important role in the implementation of those ideas. This approach might lead not to the «culture of beauty» only but also to a «culture of life».
