Started with classical social evolutionism, sociocultural evolution is both an active ideology and positive knowledge. In my opinion, a mix of the above two sides has become a ground that the wide range of theoretical and practical problems have been arising from. That “points at” such events as the collapse of the British Empire and Iraqi affairs. I view the mix as the rationalism’s dogmatism which automatically produces clashes of historical memories, cultural identities. Generally it creates a communications gap between the North and South, the West and East which is a dangerous alienation process too. So we should carefully distinguish among the sides. These historical, ideological and political issues are clearly reflected in a tendency of the literary process of the 19th-21st centuries which also might be considered as the major tendency of the one. In the paper, which is based by its method on comparative literature and interdisciplinarity, I would like to shed more light on the matter from the perspective of bridging the communications gap.
