Abstract

Background. The content of the category “quality of life” is in the constant de-velopment; therefore as the society and its culture develop the content may be de-fined more precisely. The modern civilization is characterized by existence of a number of dialectical contradictions associated with the quality of life. It is neces-sary to find new ways of solving these contradictions. The aim of the work is to de-scribe the dialectic development of the content of the category of “life quality” and to determine ways to solve problems.
Materials and methods. The methodological basis of the research is the dialec-tical method that allows to consistently formulate the content of the category of “life quality”, to describe the dynamics of its development, and to characterize the exis-ting contradictions and ways to resolve them.
Results. The driving forces for development of the content of the category of “quality of life” are analyzed. It is found that there exists the dialectical contradic-tions which prevent life quality achievement corresponding to the level of develop-ment of the modern culture. The article analyzes the view of the quality of life that is based on the harmonious human development which exists in the national culture.
Conclusions. The logic of dialectical development of the content of the category of “life qualitye” suggests that the modern civilization is on the threshold of a new stage of development. The paradigm of culture of this stage should be the quality of life. To achieve this goal it is necessary to eliminate the existing contradictions between human needs and possibilities of their satisfaction. Formation of the natio-nal idea can play a role in this process.
