Glob­al and local dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion analy­sis

Abstract. This arti­cle pro­pos­es to dis­tin­guish between glob­al and local scales of analy­sis of the dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tions of the econ­o­my and soci­ety, and pos­tu­lates the inter­re­la­tion between dif­fer­ent scales of research. The author draws atten­tion to the need for har­mo­niza­tion of lan­guages of var­i­ous dis­ci­plines. The increas­ing com­plex­i­ty and unpre­dictabil­i­ty of changes in social space in pub­lic con­scious­ness is per­ceived as a chal­lenge. The philo­soph­i­cal cat­e­go­ry of “uncer­tain­ty” acquires the fea­tures of a com­pos­ite the­o­ret­i­cal con­struct (“onto-epis­teme”). The paper dis­cuss­es the prob­lem of the place and role of instru­men­tal intel­li­gence in social prac­tices and the chal­lenges of dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tions of soci­ety in the con­text of cog­ni­tive evo­lu­tion.

Key­words: dig­i­tal econ­o­my, dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tions, scale of analy­sis, inter­dis­ci­pli­nar­i­ty, risk-ori­ent­ed approach, anthro­po-tech­nos­phere, com­plex­i­ty, uncer­tain­ty, cog­ni­tive evo­lu­tion, instru­men­tal intel­li­gence
