This paper begins by outlining the two-sided ‘ethical challenge’ that international sociology faces in the 21st century. First, formulating the ethical stance of a sociologist towards the subject of disciplinary inquiry and the potentially involved social groups. Second, elaborating the adequate research tools for studying the ethical dimension of globalizing social reality. We conduct a critical analysis of the current literature on these issues from the Global Sociology perspective. We show that the ‘value-involved’ Global Sociology is the only possible mode of successful and appealing international disciplinary practice. However, existing ‘value-involved’ approaches are Eurocentric by nature and lack sensitivity to the ethically diverse global social reality. We propose the conceptual framing of ‘Ethically Responsible Global Sociology’ as a new vision of our discipline in the global world.
This paper is devoted to the issue of so–called ‘trophy films’ in the context of Soviet foreign policy. The aim of this research is to reveal how the cultural competition between the USSR and the USA during the early Cold War caused the emergence of the famous credit title «This film was captured as a trophy after the Soviet Army defeated Nazi troops near Berlin in 1945», and, as a consequence, resulted in the establishing of ‘Trophy Film’ concept in public discourse.
The article is devoted to the analysis of the problems that arise in the system of social networks in connection with the intensification of the struggle of law enforcement bodies of the Russian Federation with phenomena that are referred to in the legal field as “extremism”, “incitement to hatred” and “insulting the feelings of believers”. The goal of the project is to analyze the problems of regulating social networks and author’s content in the context of world and domestic experience in the struggle for “network neutrality”. An interdisciplinary analysis was used in the work. In the modern Russian media space, the role of an expert and expertise on which the assessment of the content of social networks depends. The analysis performed in the article indicates that the traditional methods of examining web texts need substantial updating. The question was also raised about the need to clearly describe the qualifications of an expert and to regulate the selection of experts and the boundaries of their functional activities. Keyword: Network Сontent; Net Neutrality; Psycholinguistic Expertise.
The article proposes a concept according to which an anthropological understanding of the text is possible. This concept is based on the ideas of the authors of ancient texts, German romantics, Russian philosophers. In the framework of the proposed concept, the text is considered as a medium between the external and internal worlds of man. The external world is understood as an impersonal reality, used as a resource for human development. It is emphasized that this world is external only for a specific individual. For humanity as a whole, this world is a product of human activity; it has only the appearance of objectivity, quasi-objectivity, imaginary empirical factuality and objectivity. The internal world of a person consists of images and ideas that are grouped into identity, incentive sphere, regulatory and semantic sphere, executive sphere. Acting as a medium between the external and internal worlds, a specific text is a fragment of the information and communication universum, the main feature of which is duality. On the one hand, it exists in conscious and unconscious forms of activity of living beings, including humans. On the other hand, it does not depend on anyone, and even determines the communicative behavior of all creatures known to us (viruses, bacteria, plants, animals, humans). In other words, a man is a resource of his reproduction and self-development in relation to the information and communication universum. In a situation of rapid development of information resources and communication technologies, the question of whether modern science can comprehend the information and communication universum in all its multidimensionality and complexity, and take control of its ability to influence people, becomes an urgent issue. Moreover, this issue is becoming important not only for the humanities, but also for the future of humanity.
Systems Thinking in Museums explores systems thinking and the practical implication of it using real-life museum examples to illuminate various entry points and stages of implementation and their challenges and opportunities. Its premise is that museums can be better off when they operate as open, dynamic, and learning systems as a whole as opposed to closed, stagnant, and status quo systems that are compartmentalized and hierarchical. This book also suggests ways to incorporate systems thinking based on reflective questions and steps with hopes to encourage museum professionals to employ systems thinking in their own museum. Few books explore theory in practice in meaningful and applicable ways; this book offers to unravel complex theories as applied in everyday practice through examples from national and international museums.
