Социология и общество в XXI веке: кризисы и образы будущего (круглый стол)

Abstract. On November 28–30, 2019 the International Scientific Conference “The Future of
Sociological Knowledge and Challenges of Social Transformation (to the 90th Anniversary of V.A. Yadov)”
took place, and within the framework of the conference the round table discussion of Community of
Professional Sociologists was held, the general content of which we offered to the readers. The main
issue of the discussion was the state and role of sociology in Russia and the world. The participants
expressed different positions, outlined the main problems of sociological knowledge and profession,
diagnosed both crisis phenomena and grounds for development of the modern sociology. Specialists
stated that the crisis in the theoretical understanding of society in sociology is reflected to a certain
extent in society’s distrust to sociology. Practically each of the participants discussed the public role
of sociologist in the modern world, which faces the need to interact with commercial and power
organizations. Discussing the fate of sociology in the 21st century, the participants proposed ways
out of the crisis – rethinking the subject of sociology, new ways of assembling the palette of modern
sociological research, the need to return to the theory of a holistic image of society and construction
of ideas about the ways of future development of society.
