Annotation The opposition “nature-culture” is built as one of the most ancient forms of conscious construction of universal laws and multilevel interpretation of unconscious structures of the person. The social space of modernity in a distorted form reflects the reality of the past historical and cultural life in an environment where almost all the nature of the planet has been transformed by human activity. The article considers the most convincing examples of the boundaries of the evolution of culture, shows the fundamental foundations of scientific and philosophical knowledge of the results of the interaction of culture and nature, proves the thesis that the former reliance on the so-called compensatory function of culture whicj allowed us to correct the “mistakes of nature” in man for thousands of years is no longer decisive. In the twentieth century, mass unawareness of the circumstances that nature has become universally “secondary” and substantiate is clearly observable. The opposition of artificial (cultural) and natural (natural) is accepted as an initial datum in the cultural picture of human reality, the belief is postulated that man acts as an internal “observer” and the operator of nature, due to his specific, evolutionarily developing over the millennia system of perception, understanding and representation. In this structural and functional context, the procedural nature of culture can be expressed by the systematic receipt of meaningful information about the world, about the person and society, personally interpreted and recorded in multiple formats of phenomena, processes, artifacts and archetypes united within the framework of the diversity of human cultures.
