Languages of publication



In the modern society, we witness crucial changes correlated with transformations in the communication and information spheres. How do they influence development and functioning of all social system? Can they become the reason of transformation of the most social system? To what extent the laws of information and communication do influence the laws of social institutes functioning? And can they cause transformation of such traditional systems as mass-media, the man itself, and social space as a whole? The changes which occur to the information and communications in a modern society have both positive and negative consequences. But they do not bear the threat to social system. Rather they heighlight some moments of the process of its transformation toward a qualitatively new level of functioning and take part in formation of new (network) design of social space. This problem has not been yet sufficiently elucidated within sociological studies. So the theme requires careful elaboration.
