Conceptual foundations of the social organisation theory of the future: an integral approach. Sotsiologicheskie issledovaniya [Sociological Studies]. 2017. No 10. P. 97-103


The article is devoted to the specifics of the “Sociology of organizations” in its synthesis with society as a world–system, giving the opportunity to raise the status of this branch from the middle range theories to the subject of a general sociological theory, pointing to its organic relationship with society as the object of this theory. The solution to this problem is based on understanding the specifics of the organization today associated with the presence of many theories, the subject of which meet the material and ideal needs of the people and in the process of forming business and cultural ties between many specific forms of these entities. They initiate network logic changes in the social system, however, causing chaos in public life. The situation needs not only rethink the process of formation of the theory of social organizations in Russia on the basis of a synthesis of the accumulated knowledge with the application of the principles of dialectical logic, but also gives rise to ideas about social organization as a world–system. This approach allowed to discern the simplest “pure” form of social organization, caused by the movement of the global community as a single, integral organism, seeing if this is the main factor in this respect due to social order – the state that is organically linked to the semantic characteristic of the social world–system, which lies at the basis of its regulatory organization.
