|Abstract||Radical changes in socio-political, economic, and cultural landscape destroying the stability and sustainability of human existence stir the need for seeking fundamentals of this stability which lies in the bowels of the collective unconscious and reside in the archetypical matrices. One of the basic archetypes is the archetype of the home, and it underpins the formation of basic security and human identity. The identification of functional characteristics and levels of this archetypal construct may be of interest to the problems of security and ethnic identity. The exploration of these issues requires a reference to particular concepts of sociopsychological, cultural-and-historic, socio-cultural, axiological, and socio-philosophical approaches to studying the psychological and cultural phenomenon. The treatment of security and ethnic identity’ issues is linked to studying the substance of a defensive and identifying function of the home archetype which symbolically realizes itself as a mythological, and a social, and an architectural, as a geographical, and as ethnic space. The home archetype actualization manifests itself in the unconscious aspiration to successful searches of a secure living space which becomes a reference point for the subject’s awareness of his place in the world. If the influence of archetypal home reduces, people no longer feel their belonging to any place or community, and their sense of social responsibility weakens, too.|
