Reconsideration of a world view - a sign marker of modern era. Even traditional cultures, as a rule, the most resistant to changes, are forced to change their views due to globalization processes. Space and Time lose their sacredness, and “the strange” is identified with “the Other”, becoming just “a different cultural experience”. However not all cultural practics can peacefully coexist in one territory in uniform society. The difference in valuable representations creates the intensity centers. The essence of the events consists in the necessity “to change the way of thinking in global aspect that presupposes to recognize this“stranger” as other, but equal». There is a need of search wider forms of self-identification. But on this way there are large difficulties owing to steady patterns of traditional world view. Transformation of the world view is a mutual process that also involves native population of the host societies. The phenomenon of «neostranger» escapes understanding, so the Western society proposes to separate it, bring it out of the framework of liberal values and leave it to its own devices, cultivating its traditional practices. Hence, despite specific transformation of the worldview, traditional societies remain primordial approach to culture which nullifies social integration. The theoretical analysis of the existing contradictions in worldviews of different cultures brings to the level of understanding of the deep reasons of cultural confrontation and defines necessary measures for its overcoming.
