In the article, on the basis of critical and comparative analysis, the methodological range of the Enlightenment project conceptual transformation in the context of the modern social philosophy leading approaches is researched. It is found out that the enlightening confidence in the Mind as a normative factor of social development is transformed, on the one hand, into the concept of communicative rationality developed in the conceptual framework of the communicative theory of J. Habermas, and on the other hand, in the concept of system rationality in the conceptual framework of the system analysis theory of N.Luhmann . These universalist strategies of salvation (Habermas) and improvement (Luhmann) of the enlightenment project are denied by representatives of the radical contextualism J.-F.Lyotard and R.Rorty, opposing them, accordingly, the concepts of "Paralogy" and "redescription of dictionaries". However, the conceptual-categorical structure of the communicative strategy makes it possible to take into account the complementary potential of both systems theory and radical contextualism. In particular, the methodological advantages of system analysis are taken into account in the communicative model of the two-stage modern complex societies structure. As for radical contextualism, it is interpreted as "transcendental communitarianism".
