русская версия

Опубликовано на портале: 25-05-2007
This article offers an analysis of information notion current in recent sociological uses exemplified mostly by Russian-language publications. Apart from reviewing origins of the notion, more modern literature is thoroughly discussed, and a number of authors are criticized for being unscientific - especially those defining information as an essential property of entire material world thus tending to divorce information from human society. Processes of human reflection and interaction are for the author key aspects of a scientific approach to the concept's contents. Original definition of the concept is duly offered emphasizing above aspects of its duality. Social information, its forms, functions and sources are discussed in conclusion.
