In this paper the author tries to explore (or at least to indicate) the problem of the so-cial function of philosophy in the contemporary world. This world is characterized by universal modernization and in the last decades by globalization and unification, but at the same time also by controversies and contradictions which reveal tendencies of hu-man regression and degeneration. Philosophy must remain a study of general and fun-damental nature of a human-produced world. As such philosophy produces potentiali-ties of critical thinking, provides social investigations, and—at least in principle—gives people the power of an adequate understanding of our world, its fundamental character-istics and main tendencies. Thus philosophy is a ground for a reasonable social practice and adequate policies.
