Ways To Overcome Deviant Behavior Patterns And Dehumanization Of Culture In Literature


Having conducted a comprehensive study of the problems of ideology and the prevention of extremism and terrorism from a conceptual standpoint, the article analyzes the objects of literary heritage carrying the traditions of humanism, opposing hatred and mistrust of each other by various political, social, and national groups as one of the counterarguments to the ideas of deviant behavior patterns. One of the main criteria for the selection of works is the factor of actualizing the ideas of humanism, which deny violence, intolerance, fanaticism, separatism, etc., and contribute to anti-terrorist propaganda. The article analyzes the terrorist attack as a plot-forming event, artistic forms, and ways of its representation and interpretation in an artistic context. The material for analysis was presented by novels of the following genre varieties: pamphlet novel, family novel, commentary novel, chronicle novel, confession novel, and odyssey novel. The article analyzed not only Russian-language works but also works of modern foreign literature. The most striking, in our opinion, artistic examples, in which the problems of extremism and terrorism are investigated, and a line of counter-argumentation is drawn, have undergone close study: the novel by F.M. Dostoevsky's Demons (1872), A. Bely's novel Petersburg (1913), V. Nabokov's novel Pale Flame (1962), F. Begbeder's novels Windows on the world (2003) and Ideal (2007), E.E. Schmitt Ulysses from Baghdad (2008). These works are a dotted cut of the world literature of the 19th and 21st centuries.
