        Keywords: Reviews ; Imagination and Creativity as Cultural Values: Dynamics of Societal
               Attitudes in Lithuania

        • Authors: Aida Savicka
          Pages: 7 - 29
          Abstract: Imagination and creativity are emerging as human qualities that are seen as essential to finding new solutions to the challenges of the contemporary world. Recognizing that creativity is not only an individual, but also a communal trait, there is an increasing focus on creating a cultural and social environment that is conducive to creativity, where playfulness and imagination are valued, where freedom of expression is encouraged, and where openness to diversity and a tolerance for risk-taking and failure prevail. One of the fundamental elements of such an environment is the common societal perception that imagination is an important part of human activity. Using the data of the European Values Study, this article analyzes the attitude of Lithuanian society towards the importance of fostering of imagination, its socio-demographic differences and the dynamics of this attitude in 1990–2017.
          Keywords: Articles ; Social Justice in the 21st Century: Is the Welfare State Still a
                 Meaningful Theoretical Construct for Modern Democracy'

          • Authors: Vaidotas Valantiejus
            Pages: 30 - 42
            Abstract: The article examines the ideologem of the decline of the welfare state. The main question is whether the welfare state is still possible in contemporary society. It is argued that the thesis of the impossibility of the welfare state is an ideological statement, and the supposedly objective demise of the welfare state is what M. Foucault called ‘the regime of truth’. The article contrasts the procedural and substantive features of the concept of the welfare state. According to J. Habermas’ theory of legitimation crisis, the welfare state and the social rights it provides are not treated as paternalistic and freedom-restricting measures but rather as the foundation of legitimation.
            Keywords: Articles ; Change of the Lithuanian Art (History) Canon: The Late Soviet Period and
                   the Period of Independence

            • Authors: Kęstutis Šapoka
              Pages: 7 - 54
              Abstract: The purpose of this article is to explicate socioideological mechanisms of the Lithuanian art (history) canon of the late Soviet period and the period of independence. It theoretically defines the concept of art (history) canon, an important aspect of which is socioideological predispositions. By drawing on representative publications and albums from the late Soviet period and the period of independence the article analyses how and to what extent the Lithuanian art (history) canon has changed or remained stable. The analysis uses the term ‘Quiet modernism’, which at the end of the first decade of the independence period was used to rebrand the image of Soviet-era artists and re-format the canon. The research showed that, during the time period under investigation, the Lithuanian art (history) canon has been shaped in line with both artistic principles and socioideological factors. The canon has been partly changing, but its core is still inert and static.

          • Argumentum Ornithologicum: How Avian Metaphors Help Understand Artistic
                   Research Better

            • Authors: Aldis Gedutis, Vytautas Michelkevičius
              Pages: 55 - 72
              Abstract: The article aims to examine the phenomenon of artistic research in the broader context of sciences and arts. For that purpose, Pierre Bourdieu’s methodological principle ‘exoticize the domestic’ is used. This principle enables to change and alter the epistemic perspective suggesting that ordinary and everyday things should be investigated as if they were alien and strange. In place of theoretical arguments for and against artistic research, an avian metaphor is invoked, which enables to exoticize the domestic sufficiently. By continuing and expanding the existing avian metaphors, the article aims to highlight those aspects of artistic research that are not easy to grasp and distinguish with the help of the usual arguments pro and con artistic research. The main question to be answered: how does the perception of artistic research change when looking at it as a phenomenon of the ornithological world'

          • Reproductive Decisions of the 1970–1984 Cohort Born in Lithuania

            • Authors: Ernesta Platūkytė
              Pages: 44 - 65
              Abstract: Even though childbirth in developed societies is increasingly associated with compromises in pursuit of a professional career, education, or other important goals, parenthood has remained an important significant life stage in the process of family formation. Change of structural and contextual circumstances influences the decision of individuals on whether to have children or not, and this increasingly depends on the desire to fulfil personal wishes and satisfy personal needs. Using qualitative research, this paper analyzes the reproductive decisions of a cohort born in Lithuania during the period of 1970–1984. The research informants are often referred to as a generation of a “natural social experiment”; a generation that experienced an active stage of family life in the conditions of drastic societal change. An analysis of personal accounts displays that for this generation, marriage had been the most favourable form of family formation, and procreative decisions were greatly influenced by the prevailing contextual circumstances in society. Maintaining the sequence of normativity of the life course created favourable conditions for those born in Lithuania in 1970–1984 to have children, and procreative expectations were associated with the institutionalization of family relations.

          • Beyond Administrative Criteria: The Patterns of the Recognition of Quality
                   in the Humanities

            • Authors: Kęstas Kirtiklis, Aldis Gedutis
              Pages: 66 - 79
              Abstract: The present article seeks to discern the criteria or the quality of research, formulated and accepted within the scholarly community of the humanities. We argue that the scholars implicitly use these criteria opposing administrative evaluation. The analysis of these criteria revealed that they might be summarized in three broad categories – the novelty (originality, innovativeness) of the research; the excellence of the researcher (ability to conduct and describe the research); and the impact (academic as well as social-political). We argue that relevant criteria for the administrative evaluation of research in the humanities should draw on these perspectives.

          • Transitions from Cohabitation to Marriage or Separation among the Birth
                   Cohort of 1970–1984 in Lithuania

            • Authors: Irma Dirsytė
              Pages: 48 - 68
              Abstract: This paper aims to analyse the impact of demographic and social factors on first partnership in Lithuania – the duration of premarital cohabitation, the sustainability of such relationships, and the transition into marriage. The research is based on the 2019 Family and Inequality Survey of 1970–1984 birth cohorts. Data analysis shows that most young people began their first partnership as a cohabitation rather than marriage, and the average premarital time spent in a cohabitation increases within this cohort. Cohabitation eventually transitions into marriage, and five years after the start of cohabitation, almost all cohabitants marry, and only a small percentage of cohabitating unions dissolve. Based on Cox regression analysis, the level of education and finished studies, as well as pregnancy, are significant predictors of the transition from cohabitation to marriage. The results of the research show that three decades after the beginning of the spread of cohabitation in Lithuania, cohabitation competes with marriage, but it does not challenge the importance of marriage as an institution of childbearing and upbringing.
              Keywords: Articles ; The Crisis of the Political. An Individual and the Cosmopolis

              • Authors: Raimondas Kazlauskas
                Pages: 70 - 146
                Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to identify the most important problems of the crisis of the political in the first stage of Western civilization – the Greek world in the IV–II centuries BC. The crisis of the political is treated as a unique constellation of political, supra-political, and apolitical factors. The paper explores a hypothesis of how the power elite eliminates the core features of the political – tensions of consciousness and natural human hostilities – and substitutes them with management techniques that cause public apathy towards previously established democratic institutions. A theatrical model of life with an intensified function of individualizing social roles is an unavoidable result of such processes.
