On Transition to Personality Oriented Civil Society from the Positions of General Theory of Developing Systems
Veniamin Epshtein (Wuppertal, Deutschland)
According to meta-semiotics and meta-cybernetics generic human and human gender implicatively prescribe the development of social institutes. Consequently, they are a starting point and criteria of activities estimation of the latter. From this it follows that civil society could potentially transit into personality oriented formation. In this regard the effort is being undertaken to apply general theory of developing system to personality oriented civil society research.
The interpretation of progress as a search of optimal strategies in four-dimensional space lies in the foundation of this conception. Coordinates of the space are: reliability, stability, complexity, and time. By transition progress is made of two stages:
- Development at the starting level of complexity, where reliability is increased, but stability is decreased due to differentiation and specialization of subsystems (economy, civil society and state, etc.).
- Transition to a new level of complexity, which opens up new perspectives and promotes to increase stability of the system and to decrease its reliability.
The system naturally comes through the crisis stage. Then the quant transition to a new stage is carried out. The former is the first stage of its development at the new level of system complexity.
It is shown that working out the problem of immigration and integration of immigrants will stimulate the transition to personality oriented civil society on the basis of knowledge not only about potential of generic human, but also about peculiarities of confessional, professional, ethnic groups, peoples, and nations as kinds of human gender.
