Lubov Ivankina, Ekaterina Anikina

Abstract


The paper presents the relationship between social welfare and sustainable development of society. The purpose of this paper is to show that the social development is becoming more and more dependent upon valuable parameters that form the locus of the civil society movement. It is stated that mankind is able to influence the future through the choice of the optimum route of development. In this regard, the understanding of personal aspects of sociogenesis and its functioning mechanism is required as well as the understanding of differences between the social and natural dynamics. That is why, the philosophical understanding of sustainable development by means of social welfare as a regulatory mechanism, is one of the approaches to a study of regularities of the social life and development. The model of the social and practical existence oriented, in the first place, towards the satisfaction of needs, is the basis for the analysis of relationships between social welfare and sustainable development. A call for this aspect is especially significant for the modern society, since the consumption of goods develops from a simple use to a design instrument of the social identity and sociocultural integration of persons in society. Welfare is considered herein as a multifactor construct represented by the synthesis of cause and effect. The explication technique, hermeneutical approach and comparative analysis are used in this research.
