Bakanova E.A. - Technoscience and civil society pp. 52-62


Abstract: The relevance of this work is substantiated by the current significant transformations taking place in epistemological core of the modern science. It leads to the emergence of the new form of organization of scientific activity – technoscience, which is referred to as the “face of modern science” by Bruno Latour. Technoscience manifests as one of the key drivers of the development of civil society and its self-consciousness, contributing to the constructive civic engagement, as well as expansion of the context of human activity. Thus, the goal of this research becomes the examination of the phenomenon of technoscience and its impact upon the development of civil society. Having analyzed the works of the Russian and foreign scholars dedicated to the concept of technoscience, the author determines that it is a complicated interdisciplinary phenomenon nuanced with pragmatism, constructivism, externalism, political bias, pragmatic and social orientation. It is substantiated that the achievements of technoscience are included into the sociopolitical context; as well as demonstrated that the integration of such achievements, particularly the IT technologies, into the “fabrics of vital world” of the society actively influences the formation of civic initiatives, mindedness and principles. Therefore, the crowd technologies acquire new content, encouraging the development of civic engagement and strengthening of civic self-consciousness.
