Elaborated is actual theme of unity of the world through the prism of unity nof culture. Presented is the author’s conception, the essence of which is the notion, that while classical Western metaphysic tradition instructed to treat any variant solely as variant of kind of invariant, in modern epoch variety of variants is being interpreted as absence of evident invariants. That’s why, the author states, nowadays suggested is not unity of culture to be interpreted through unity of the world as it’s fundament, but otherwise, unity of the world ought to be comprehended through unity of culture, because culture is in ability to include plurality by various ways. For solution of the problem of unity of the world through unity of culture, the author presents basic principles of approach to it’s analytical research, i.e. supplement, fragmentary and mosaic of culture, and also reciprocal representation of dominions of culture.

Key words: world, culture, unity of the world, unity of culture, philosophy.
