This article contains an attempt to examine the development of humanistic sociology based on accepting humanism as a concept model of the research, which aims at identifying humanistic parameters of the social macro-level. The article suggests the statement that the intention of the Russian sociology to “transform into the sociology for society” is characterized by deviation from the traditional understanding of humanistic sociology as the micro-level sociology, because the key elements for categorizing the humanistic tendencies in the Russian society are the creative class and creative practices. Based on the statement about humanistic sociology as sociology of social creativity, the substantiation is given for the relationship between humanistic sociology conceptualization and of the sociology subject area expansion by explaining and predicting social and cultural changes at the social macro-level.
