[Post] Modern Sociality: [Pre] Historical Analogues

Shipilov A.V.


The progress of telecommunication technologies at this stage of development leads to the merger of previously isolated spheres and segments of the socio-cultural continuum. The institutions of an industrial society are softening and eroding, an example of which can be the school: distance education, the share and importance of which has grown sharply due to the measures taken in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, leads to its diffusion into everyday household everyday life, which turns the didactics of modernity into an anachronism that does not meet the available conditions. It's not just about education: the processes of deinstitutionalization in society as a whole are becoming more and more intense, which makes processuality, variability, and fluidity the defining property of postmodern sociality. To understand what is happening, the social sciences use the concepts and concepts through which the social is represented as dynamic and temporal. This allows us to identify an analogy between post-industrial and pre-agricultural society, which also had a network, streaming and flexible character, which can presumably be interpreted within the framework of the theory of spiral development.
