CYBERSPACE AS AN ENVIRONMENT FOR THE FORMATION OF A COSMOPOLITAN IDEOLOGICAL SYSTEM
Background. The processes of globalization accelerate the emergence of a new way of organizing social life and lead to the formation of a new world-view construct. As a result of the development of communication networks and information flows, the "compression" of the space of modern society and the formation of cyberspace is taking place.
The aim of this work is the establishment of the role of cyberspace in the formation of a cosmopolitan ideological system.
Materials and methods. System-structured, cybernetic, synergistic, structural-functional, comparative-historical, hermeneutical, transcendental, dialectical methods. Method analogy, structural-logical modeling, interpretation. System and polysystem approaches.
Results. Modern humanity has entered the process of forming a single planetary civilization. Creating such an "open all-planetary society" is undeniable fact. The basis for the possibility of its existence is the global cyber space – an environment created by an organized set of information processes. With the rise of globalization and the formation of cyberspace, a new type of worldview – cosmopolitanism, which becomes the ideological and ideological platform for the development of society – is gaining momentum. The leading tendency is the formation of the ontological unity of the planetary community due to the change in the properties of the structure, which from the "status of the center" (created by the aggregate of individual national states) goes to the level of the world information society.
In recent decades, the boundaries between states have been gradually eroded, the concept of "citizenship" and "state" are redefined. The connection of citizens to national states is becoming weaker, and the European community is slowly but surely turning into a cosmopolitan society with a common European citizenship. Modern information technologies make the borders a political convention, creating new modes of interconnectivity between spaces throughout the globe, transforming scalar relations between local, national and global, introducing unprecedented speeds of interaction and communication.
Conclusion. The formation of cyberspace, which unfolds in the logic of awareness of globalization, creates the basis for the formation of new ideological horizons. Today it became apparent that the existing lifestyles have exhausted themselves and require substantial transformations at all levels of self-realization of the social system. Cosmopolitan worldview allows you to cover the shifts in socio-political rules, as well as the processes of integration of states.
