The authors of the article note that the problem of identification is especially important at the present stage of civilization, characterized by active processes of globalization and integration and strengthening of communicative-discursive exchange. Identity is a complex and ambiguous phenomenon, complicated by several factors. They distinguish different types of identity, formed and dominant in a particular historical era. They include ethnic identity, linguistic identity, religious identity, national identity, cultural identity, transcendental identity. Also the authors present communication as a condition for the self-identification of the individual.
