The article is dedicated to the analysis of radical changes that occurred in culture (in its broadest sense) in the second part of the 20th century and the early 21st century. Key radical innovations in nature-transforming (technical-and-technological), information, socio-organizing and spiritual subsystems of culture are discussed. The two fundamental effects are singled out. The fi rst one is that in people’s life culture dominates as an “artifi cial” habitat, which puts nature (both external and internal) on the back-burner and turns it, in many respects, into a subservience to culture. The second effect is that ta new, underlying macro-paradigm of culture awareness has emerged, a culture-centered one representing specifi c reality, existential leadership and universal role of culture; and increasingly competing with the basic macro-paradigm of cultural awareness over the millennia is a naturecentered one. The establishment of the new paradigm in philosophy, social sciences and the humanities is shown.
