The Problem of Personal Development in the Context of Social Anomie
Keywords:social anomie, personal development, social norm, integration, environment, adaptation, professional activity
The article is devoted to some prospects for personal development. In contemporary societies, personal development often occurs in parallel with significant larger-scale changes of a social, socio-psychological and cultural nature. These include wars, socio-economic crises or unfavourable changes in epidemiological situations that lead to the distortion and modification of social norms and values. In such conditions, a person succumbs to uncertainty and is alienated from their environment. These phenomena are characterized by the term “social anomie”. Hence, out of all the factors contributing to personal development, professional activity significantly contributes to a person’s ability to overcome anomie and reintegrate into society.
