Мир человека: неопределенность как вызов
The article substantiates that uncertainties, instabilities, and fluctuations accompanying the development processes in the modern world not only create difficulties for us, but also form a basis for our individual and collective creativity. The future is open and not given to us in advance, and it is in the power of a man to make a deliberate and measured choice of the further path of development from a whole spectrum of possibilities in states of instability or at points of bifurcation. The world is constructed by men and with their active participation taking into account some preferred images of the future. Such scientists and thinkers of the 20th century as Ilya Prigogine and Ivan Frolov combined philosophy and science and taught us to develop integrative, holistic, interdisciplinary strategies for understanding the present and constructing the future, guided by humanitarian values and a culture of reason.
Nobel prize winner I. Prigogine stands for peace, against the arms race, against the use of science for destruction of man and humanity. In his opinion, in the sphere of human capabilities it is essential to change the trajectory of civilization development. At the bifurcation points, unprecedented changes are possible. Instability is not a sign of weakness, but of the vitality of the system. Globalization should not mean unification, but pluralism and diversity of cultures. Science of the future needs to give a systematic explanation ofmegaera and microcosm. A sign of hope is that interest in studying nature and the desire to participate in cultural life has never been greater than today. We do not need any "post-humanity". Man, as he is today, with all his problems, joys and sorrows, is able to understand this and to keep himself in the next generations. The challenge is to find a narrow path between globalization and preservation of cultural pluralism, between violence and political solutions, between the culture of war and the culture of reason.
