Eduard S. Kulpin. The Crimea phenomenon in terms of social-natural history  (pp. 3–15).

In March 2014 the Crimea joined the Russian Federation. Many countries treated this as violation of the world balance and renunciation of the established world order. At the same time it raised the questions what the modern world (and its order) is and to what extent it meets the new reality. Interaction of policy, rights and morals was always a knotty problem and could not be settled completely. Very often it involves vast, even “tectonic”, though not always perceived by contemporaries, changes as well as different interest, ideologies, mentalities and nations.

The world is on the threshold of technological shifts which are fundamental to settle the complex of interconnected problems originally induced by population growth in the context of limited natural resources. The growth and scantiness made it impossible to increase life quality and level to ones fitting social expectations. Under conditions of globalization and the information revolution of the late 20th – early 21st century the expectations grew by leaps and bounds in all countries. The old order dissatisfies too many people. “Assemblage points” of a new order, usually invisible for contemporaries, appear. In society, just as in nature, only 2 % of mutation provide further development, 98 % go to a historical spoil tip. What is joining of the Crimea to Russia in March 2014 – our future or an ill-fated experiment?

Keywords: social-natural History, globalization, world order, mentality.

Oleg A. Kazhanov. Evgeni Tarle on the aspects of interaction between academic sociology and sociological publicism (N. K. Mukhaylovskiy works the case) (pp. 16–33).

The article deals with correlation between academic and non-academic forms of sociology development in the pre-revolutionary period Russian sociology formation. It analyzes views of E. Tarle (who studied N. K. Mikhayloivskiy's works concerning social aspects of the theory of imitation in periodical press) on the place and role of the publicistic genre in the scientific cognition of socium. Relevance of some conclusions for a modern view of scientific publicism as “a border zone of cognition”, that presupposes a combination of image-based, emotional and theoretic-logical means of comprehension of social reality, has been demonstrated.

Keywords: history of Russian sociology, academic sociology, sociological publicism, an organic connection of science and publicism, inter-subject cognition of social reality.

Vladimir I. Pantin. Social-demographic and civilizational changes in the modern world: causes and effects (pp. 34–45).

In this article some important causes and effects of social-demographic and cultural-civilizational shifts which take place in the modern world are considered in terms of social-natural history and civilizational approach. Among these shifts there are global migration, rapid ethnic changes in the Western countries and Russia, degradation of family and education, dissemination of radical Islam. It is shown that these processes lead to transformation and fragmentation of the Western and Russian societies, to development of social and political conflicts. At the same time the consequences of the Arab Spring are accompanied with regional and global destabilization connected with strengthening of radical Islam and international terrorism. Resistance to this threat needs joining efforts of leading countries which now is absent due attempts of the Western countries to direct radical Islam against Russia and China.

Keywords: global migration, social and demography shifts, crisis of family and education, radical Islam, social conflicts, political destabilization.

Ibrahim E. Suleymenov, Oleg A. Gabrielyan, Dina B. Shaltykova, Kamilya I. Suleymenova. Area of semantic codes of the modern civilization (pp. 46–68).

It is shown that the current global crisis can be considered as financial one only on the face of it; in fact, its nature is largely determined by the crisis of social ability to generate fundamental projects that would determine the direction of its development. It is established that overcoming the current crisis requires not only improvement of financial instruments and the development of adequate credit and financial policies, but also the development of appropriate humanitarian technologies. A phenomenon known in the literature as the “Greek miracle” may be considered as the prototype of one of them.

Keywords: global crisis, noosphere, neural networks, Greek miracle.
