Conceptualization of Foresight,
or a New Type of Social Action in Modern Culture

Abstract. The article focuses on prospects of anthropological transformation of man, visions of freedom, possibilities of social engineering, etc.  in the framework of the concept of foresight and transhumanism, as well as Russian philosophers’ points of view concerning  it, with a cultural outlook of the German author and philosopher H. Arendt being opposed to it.   

Keywords. Man, culture, foresight, transformation, social engineering, society, policy, humanism, transhumanism.

[7] The word expert comes from the Greek empiros. The essence of a public expertise should not boil down to congruent knowledge, but should result in a wide range of judgments and opinions of experts, with them (for example, scientists) belonging to the same community but having different viewpoints on a given question.

[17] According to Arendt, features of the free ancient man coincide with the one worked out by me – of “a developing ancient personality” (See: Rozin V. Personality and Its Study. Moscow: Editorial URSS Publishing House, 2004, 2012).

[20] Yu. Davidov is precise in noting the characteristics specified here: “Society (Lat. Societas – “social environment”, “sociality”, “social”) in the broad sense of the word means the whole of ways of interaction and forms of connections between people which reflects their comprehensive interdependence; and in the narrow sense – genetically and/or structurally defined type (kind, sort, subspecies, etc.) of communication being a historically formed integrity or as a relatively separate element of a similar one” (Davidov Yu.
