The native theory of worldview self-identification of mankind we associate with the nature of philosophy detected through the search for “grounds” of philosophy, science and religion. Science is moving in contradiction, contradiction of truth, lies and delusion, religion (and “simulacris”) – a contradiction of knowing thinking and its simulation, “imitation”. Located “between” with them, philosophy is introduced into the essence of their antagonism, “opposites of opposites”, synthesizing ontology and gnoseology, detecting and combining the types of world-weather, diving on materialism and idealism.

For native philosophy, it is logical to start with the philosophy of Russian cosmism, which begins with the criticism of the contemplative peace (man’s submission to the world, his substance) and underlining activism (justifying the human domination over the world) with a support for religion and idealism, later on science and technique. In the twentieth century, Marxism spread in the country. All reality, he generally denotes moving matter or material motion. With the ability to build a new and develop from a simple to complex, the world generates a person, through whose activity is being prolonged, their subsequent joint development (coevolution) is increasing. Overcoming one-sidedness of contemplative and activist paradigms. Three basic types of worldview self-identification of mankind (contemplation, activism and coevolution) are revealed, their synthesis in a generalizing model. The relationship between nature and man is revealed. Being inside the nature, he “learns” to regulate its processes, freeing the story from uncontrollable forces. This turns materialism into a “practical theory” of conversion of matter.

From the side of the simulation trend, there is a resistance to such a transformation, the opposite of positive and negative dialectics, climbing and descent, progress and regression, truth and imitation is sharpened: the context of the second becomes the basis for the forms of alienation of a mankind from being (mechanism and its analogues). They need overcoming to solve the cardinal problems of modernity. The opposite trend in philosophy is developing idealism. For a replacement of humanistic ally “positive utopias” of the comprehensive development of a mankind, dubious projects of the transition from a man to super- and post-depletive creatures came. Their danger is to “implement” in conditions of capitalism. Their connection with the refusal to the concept of truth, which included in history with the arrival of “axial time” (K. Yaspers) was proved. The study methodology is the ideas of materialism and dialectics, the principle of systemic and development, historical and logical, ascent from the abstract, theory of theory and practice.
