Publisher's Summary

Humanity is accustomed to feeling mature; despite the fact that compared to geomorphological age it is far from it, to put it mildly. Based on this comparison, we can conclude that we are still in childhood state. Maybe to some extent it is due to this that the current level of sensible activity of a human is not free from many natural laws, which often get ignored by theories of knowledge.

Through understanding of what a "symbol" is, of its history, cultural application - it is possible to conclude that the influence of psychophysiological specifics of an individual on the style of decision-making mainly depends on the interaction of his individual archetypal complex with the environment. And, this requires efforts of philosophical, culturological, psychological, and other scientific directions in a single, synergistic approach to the problem of individuality.

German physicist Hermann Haken proposed the term "synergy" to describe the aggregate, collective effect of interaction of a large number of subsystems, which lead to formation of stable structures and self-organization in complex systems. Originating from non-equilibrium thermodynamics, synthesis of knowledge of natural sciences, synergy orients on the disclosure of mechanisms of self-organization of complex systems-natural and social, as well as those created by human hands. Together with synergy came the understanding of unity of inorganic and organic world, understanding that alternation of chaos and order is a universal principle of world order. According to academician N. Moiseyev: "Everything we observe, all that we are involved in today are only fragments of a single synergistic process."

The perspective that society is a social machine that operates according to "objective laws" is a pre-synergistic perspective. Modern natural sciences, science in general, and social life force to learn new synergistic tools of thought.
