This paper offers a critical analysis of current conceptualizations of masculinity crisis. Particular attention is being paid to the inconsistencies in academic field, suggesting a classification of the major theoretical approaches to crisis of masculinity. They are: (1) historical approach, according to which crisis of masculinity is a product of social changes during the 19–20th centuries; (2) essentialist approach, which stresses that crisis of masculinity existed at all times as an integral part of hegemonic masculinity; and (3) critical approach, which claims that crisis of masculinity is a result of moral panic and is a discoursive product that has nothing to do with reality. In the paper, is also is suggested a differentiation between the terms “crisis of masculinity” and “men in crisis”. Hence, the author analyzes the relation of mentioned above approaches to these concepts.
