Abstract

The author comprehends the prospects for the formation and development of sociology of the future as an independent direction of sociological thought. The logic of modern sociological thought, the request for new theoretical and methodological approaches, the scale and complexity of the problems of the social development of Russian society, actualize the conceptualization of the sociology of the future, the formation of a categorical apparatus and the development of models for the empirical verification of processes that are oriented toward creating the future. The monograph consistently develops the views of the author, proceeding from the absence of alternative for the Russian society of social creativity and social solidarity as the main resources of development on social micro- and macrolevels. For managers, researchers, teachers, students, graduate students, doctoral students specializing in the field of Sociology.
