The paper examines an integrated approach to the genre interpretation of culture, communication, and human existence as a whole, which is based on the genre concept of Bakhtin. Genre is understood as the statement which is cultural inherent in any historical period and has its own historical and transhistorical essence determined by the openness and activeness of the epistemological imperative. In the context of research of bases and principles of Bakhtin's concept of having an existential, ontological and epistemological significance the author makes an attempt of regarding genre as a fundamental social and humanitarian category.
