Ursul A.D., Ursul T.A. - Goals of sustainable development and security issues


Abstract: This article explores the process of transition from the Millennium Development Goals to the Goals of Sustainable Development due to the introduction of the new Agenda in the area of sustainable development for the period until 2030 (later Agenda-2030). The new global Goals of Sustainable Development, following the Millennium Development Goals, contain 17 goals in the area of sustainable development and associated with them tasks. The authors demonstrate that from the very beginning the Sustainable Development as a new form of development of civilization had “targeted orientation” and suggested realization and formulation of the targeted hierarchy necessary for the establishment of the effective global management. In the long view, sustainable development in its “anthropogenic” component should implement the goals and principles of the Sustainable Development, which will be determined with each new stage of development of such type of socio-natural evolution. The author substantiates the position that the concept of Sustainable Development must drastically transform in “global dimension” and cannot limit itself by a “triad” of interconnection between the economics, ecology and social sphere, at least in its modern perspective. It is noted that preservation of planet’s biosphere is one of the major goals of the transition towards sustainable development, as well as its natural foundation, on which the sustainable development should be based upon, representing a new, gradually evolving and acquiring a global scale socio-natural process. The authors discuss the concept of planetary boundaries that establishes the corridor of global environmental security, within the limits of which the biosphere is being destroyed by the anthropogenic activity to the minimal degree.

Ursul A.D., Ursul T.A. - Noospherogenesis as a Global Evolutionary Process pp. 9-92


Abstract: The article notes that the doctrine of the noosphere in the works of Vladimir Vernadsky developed on the conceptual and ideological basis in which globalism and the idea of the formation of noosphere were connected to form a coherent vision of the future. A characteristic feature of the future will noospherogenesis its worldwide character is determined not only by global processes and the biosphere-environmental considerations, and in fact all the major components of the system and the megatrends of human activity as a civilizational and cultural evolution. Noospherogenesis considered in this work as the basic means of survival of mankind and the shape and the main goal of all present and future development of civilization, including the transition to global sustainability, the creation of an information civilization, globalization and other positive processes of global development. It is also about a new stage - is non-classical, and not just in the doctrine of the noosphere, but wider - in noosphere studies and thereby turning the "exercises" in science or scientific field. Discloses a process for the global transition to sustainable development of mankind, info essence of the phenomenon of the noosphere and the formation of its main core - noosphere collective intelligence.We use an evolutionary (especially universal evolutionary) approach and methods of global research and information approach and criteria development. It is also shown that the study of the future futurological approach can radically change the traditional approaches and methods of research, focusing scientific research in the past and the present in the direction of understanding and predicting the future.The authors makes a single evolutionary concept formation and information of the noosphere, not only as a planetary phenomenon, but as a necessary step in the universal process of self-organization of matter. Scope of the mind seems like does not exist yet, and the hypothetical future state of society and its interaction with nature, in which priority will occupy the global common human intelligence, orienting the evolution of society and nature in a safe direction for civilization. Noospherogenesis considered in this work as the basic means of survival of mankind and the shape and the main goal of all present and future development of civilization, including the transition to global sustainability, the creation of an information civilization, globalization and other positive processes of global development.It is shown that mankind has transformed into a single, coherent civilization noosphere, accompanied by the formation of a fundamentally new way to secure socio-natural coevolutionary interactions. Hypotheses about the possibility of transformation of cultural and civilizational processes in the noosphere stage of their evolution beyond the planet. It has been argued the need to enhance conceptual understanding of the phenomenon of the noosphere to evolution-cosmic scale. We are talking about the fact that social evolution creates chances of becoming the sphere of reason, not only in the biosphere on a global scale, but also that the formation of the noosphere due to continuing global evolution of the Universe and is a necessary stage of its deployment, which will be implemented in the social and natural form first in the world, and then beyond.

Ursul A.D., . - Global Direction of Science pp. 58-120


Abstract: It has been stated that the beginning of the global direction in science should be referred to the first half of last century.The authors of the article view related processes of globalization of knowledge and formation of global knowledge. The authors believe it is necessary to define the place of global direction in modern science, form the general concept and assess opportunities for further development of global studies. It is assumed that global studies, whether the subject of global studies is narrow or broad, is just part of a broader science - global research and general process of globalization of science. Changes in the subject of global studies and global researches making this subject even broader require not only historical, but also evolutionary approach to current and future global processes. The authors also describe the evolutionary approach (that is different from historical approach) to global researches and especially to global studies of different global processes and systems including global natural processes, globalization and global issues. Evolutionary globalization is focused on studying the development and co-evolution of global processes and their synergetic phenomenon - global development. Formation of global knowledge and global transformations in science are also viewed from the point of view of the transfer to sustainable development and formation of the sphere of reason - noosphere.

Ursul A.D., . - Globalization in the perspective of sustainable future. pp. 1-63


Abstract: Sustainable development is a future global process and the future of entire mankind and its fate in the new Millennium depend on it.  It is a new form (model) of global community development, which guarantees resolution of the key social and natural contradiction between the growing needs of global development and limitations, or even impossibility for  the biological sphere to meet these demands.  Unfolding in its future political, economic, environmental and social aspects through sustainable development, globalization  should provide its input into the resolution of the key social and natural and other contradictions of the global development, and thanks to this input it may be possible to meet the current and future demands.  The transfer to implementation of policies and strategies of sustainable development brings the humanity to a new mainly social and natural globalization stage, which is aimed towards unity of civilization, its preservation and co-evolution with the biological sphere.  The article concerns political aspects of globalization through sustainable development, and attention is paid to the fact that political dimension of emergent globalization falls behind economic and other elements of this global process.  The sustainable development strategy which is developed by the UN and its Member States,  seems to contain mostly political recommendations and declarations. Therefore, it is important to include into the starting process of managing "sustainable" globalization all of the key elements of this global strategy.  Sustainable development in the broadest sense is non-regressive, and secure development for the main humane goal of survival of humankind and preservation of nature.  The authors evaluate the role of state in implementation of globalization processes through sustainable development and study of the further evolution of the statehood phenomenon.  The authors pay special attention to the problems of environmental globalization, sustainable policy and its specific characteristics.

Ursul A.D., . - V.I. Vernadsky and Global- Noosphere Studies pp. 318-365


Abstract: In our country, V.I. Vernadsky proposed the idea of the formation of the noosphere as the main areas for further development of mankind, which will have to streamline its operations, ensuring the survival of the multi-billion population. Followers of the Soviet Union, and particularly in recent years in Russia, substantially developed his ideas and showed that the epoch of formation of the noosphere - the future of humanity, which starts on its way to the transition to sustainable development. The brilliant Russian scientist was at the forefront of global research and many of his ideas were oriented in planetary direction. One can speak of a kind of anticipation of his special - a global stage and trends in science in general, the age of globalization, the history of mankind. The idea of V.I. Vernadsky on "planetary" nature of scientific thought has acquired its concrete shape in the global processes now taking place in the world and their understanding, and in anticipation of future social and socio-natural evolutionary processes leading up to the sphere of reason.The article discusses the new field of global studies – futureglobalistiks and nooglobalistiks, whose main purpose - understanding and predicting the future of global processes and systems in an evolutionary perspective, and orientation of the noosphere. The authors analyze the mostly two-standard projection scenarios of global development - the transition to sustainable development and the following formation of the noosphere. Sustainable development is a global process manages system-balanced socio-natural development without damaging the environment and ensuring the survival and security indefinite existence of civilization. Formation of the noosphere is seen as a future socio-natural process of becoming a planetary sphere of human existence, in which the intellectual and information activities will be the determining factor in the evolution and which is formed as a result of the most complete embodiment of rational, humanistic principles and ideals through the transition to sustainable development. Special attention is paid to the formation of the noosphere as a future form of intelligence "social consciousness" in the noosphere, combining the intellectual resources of humanity and Informatics, which resulted in there being a property of an advancing consciousness and the ability of global governance.

Ursul A.D., . - The Future of Humanity: Death or Immortality? pp. 138-199


Abstract: The authors study the possible death of mankind, which had previously been questioned and discussed by many scholars. At the same time, the authors analyze the idea of K.E. Tsiolkovsky about the possibility of an infinite progress of the society that originated and developed on our planet as a result of the wide space exploration. The authors also investigated numerous global and cosmic threats and dangers that may be encountered by the humankind on the way to their further development and assessed probability of the hypothesis of social immortality. It is noted that the global and cosmic cataclysms and the possible danger of external nature, in comparison with the reality of anthropogenic global environmental catastrophe, go to the periphery of the strategic vision of the continued existence of civilization. In order to survive, the humankind must move towards sustainable development and subsequent noosferogenesis involving the preservation of civilization and the biosphere, and their co-evolution as a permanent co-development not only in the next century, but for future indefinitely.In connection with the wide space exploration, the authors discuss the so-called Big Socia Bang, i.e. fast (on cosmological time scales) spatio-temporal extension of socio-natural areas, which is about the same regularity as the globalization proccess in the earth coordinate system. The authors also analyze  the fundamental assumption of the possible appearance of a higher stage of evolution of matter, provisionally called postsocial stage.

Ursul A.D., ., . - Global and political processes: the relationship and the establishment of an evolutionary approach pp. 95-154


Abstract: The authors examine the relationship and the difference between the historical and evolutionary approaches and come to the conclusion that the emergence of evolutionary branches in the global and political studies. Research shows relationship political and global processes and political globalism and global political science as mature forms of research and the world of global politics. The article on the theoretical and methodological level, we study the evolutionary approach to global research and discusses the evolution of the political process under the influence of global factors. The authors believe that globalism in its broad sense is studying global processes and systems, and explores their evolutionary globalism is a global development process. Global development and the evolution of co-evolution of global processes and systems is the main focus of evolutionary globalism.Also considered are the basic shape and the direction of evolution of political processes associated with globalization and other global processes. The problem of the formation of political and globalization as part of globalistics, the object of which is to identify the political patterns and trends in global processes and systems. The problem of the formation of global politics, and the formation of global development centered on the survival of civilization and the preservation of the environment.

Ursul A.D., . - Science and Education From Global and Noospheric Perspective pp. 161-222


Abstract: The authors emphasize the importance of not only the spatial but also the temporal characteristics of scientific knowledge, especially more attention to the future of science. The main emphasis in the knowledge of the future should be given to the scenario of the global transition to sustainable development (SD) as adopted by the United Nations and its Member States of the international organization normative forecast from a major strategy for the survival of civilization, escape from looming global crises and disasters. Therefore, before science set new goals - goals of survival and exit anthropoecologic crisis, aims to address global challenges and to remove the negatives of globalization and other global processes through the transition to SD and the formation of the noosphere. Real turn to the future of science and the study can begin only when it is formed by a different mode (model) science as an integrated single system in its socio-natural and "leading" aspects. The basic features of the future of science, especially the noosphere - the process futurization. Discusses the globalization of educational space, finding the planetary integrity and unity, which is associated with substantial and qualitative changes that map the evolution of the global nature of modern man and the awareness of his place in the Universe. For the formation of a sustainable civilization need to create not just a new model of education, and a number of evolutionary models, which could satisfy the corresponding (non-vanishing) the needs of present and future generations of humans and humanity that is reflected in the name of the new types of global education (education for SD, noospheric education, etc.). Education is not just for learning, development and education in special educational institutions, and is seen as a wider process of information interaction between man and the world. In this sense, education - is not just a form of human activity, and the entire set of human activities, the full scope of information interaction of the individual with the social and natural being (i.e, not only one of the socialization process), the information displayed in the evolution of the individual. This wide - socio-natural vision of education is one of its many global processes in the global evolution of the flow and can be used as the basis of the most general concept of education as an open information space of global evolutionary process.

Ursul A.D., . - Education as Information Process and Prospects of its Futurization pp. 1-57


Abstract: The authors view education as an information process and therefore uses information criteria to evaluate future development of education. Education can be studied by using information approaches and methods because it is the process of accumulation, transfer, processing and other forms of movement of educational information. The authors of the article analyze semiotic features of educational information circulating in processes and systems of education, development and up-bringing. Special attention is paid to the need in futurization of education and formation of advanced education in addition to modernization of education. Today's survival of the mankind in many ways depend on education and transformation of modern but at the same time unprogressive education into education of sustainable development and other forms of evolutionary education capable of bringing the mankind out of the global anthropogenic crisis. The authors of the article also focus on the ontological approach that views education not only as a part of the human-and-society system but also as a general form of development when human gets involved not only in the global-natural but also universal-cosmic evolution.

Ursul A.D., . - Global World View and Global Studies pp. 137-173
Abstract: The authors consider globalism as a way of seeing the world in which humanity lives as a global world in which all planetary features, including spatial-temporal precedence. It has been suggested that it is important to determine the status of globalistics,  the place of the scientific exploration of global processes in modern science, and to build a common vision and assess the prospects for global studies. It is assumed that globalistics, regardless of the narrow or broad definition of its subject, is only part of a broader scientific field - Global Studies and the overall process of globalization of science. Shown that the change of subject fields and globalization continue to expand the field of global studies required not only historical, but also the evolution of vision as we learn about global processes and new applicants to the same "role", including global natural processes.

Ursul A.D., . - Evolutionary Paradigm and Models of Education in the XXI Century pp. 1-67
Abstract: We propose an evolutionary approach to the study of emerging models and paradigms of education in the perspective of globalization and the transition to sustainable development. Therefore assumed fundamental evolutionary transformation of educational processes, the vector is directed from its present form to education for sustainable development and the formation of global education oriented at noosphere.

Ursul A.D., . - The problem of security: global and universal evolutionary aspects pp. 81-159
Abstract: The paper analyzes the security problem from the standpoint of global and interdisciplinary research and is considered formation of a unified methodology of research problems and the concept of security in connection with their expansive interpretation, and on the basis of a global (universal) evolutionism. It is noted that the formation of the global world fraught with new risks and dangers planetary scales, which may cause anthropogenic global catastrophe. Arises the need for exposure to globalization and other global processes of a sustainable development-oriented full providing security and the survival of civilization. In the future, global world with sustainable development, national and global security will be ensured by not primarily a defense, but mainly through this type of development, which will promote the positive and overcome the negative trends in global development.

Ursul A.D., . - Universal (Global) Evolutionism and Global Studies pp. 46-101
Abstract: In this paper we propose a general scientific concept of a global (universal) evolution, in which self-organization of the material systems acts as a common ground and a permanent process of progressive development in the visible Universe. The main problem of research of this type of evolution is seen as a superhighway trajectory of evolutionary processes in the Universe, in which there is a continuous self-organization of the material systems, ranging from the Big Bang and to the social level of evolution, which has an indefinite continuation of society and nature. The authors consider it necessary to determine the status of globalistics, to determine the place of the scientific exploration of global processes in modern science, and to build a common vision and assess the prospects for global studies. It is assumed that globalistics, regardless of the narrow or broad definition of its subject, is only part of a broader scientific field – Global Studies (which includes a global evolutionism) and the overall process of globalization of science.
