ABSTRACT

Information and communication technologies (ICT) play an important role in the development of modern Russian society. Their fast development together with the convergence of computer systems with different types of communications resulted in the need to reevaluate the perception of these technologies in the spiritual sphere of a human being. This paper analyses the implementation of information and communication technologies into the spiritual sphere of the Russian society. Based on the analysis of statistical and factual data, the authors distinguish five stages of increase of the role of ICT in such domains as education, religion and culture. The first stage is connected to the time when significant social objects get their own websites and other communicative platforms on the Internet, the second one to the appearance of online order of different services, the third one to the direct realisation of social functions by the means of ICT for a limited audience, the fourth stage aims to remove the time and space limitations of the audience and can be represented, for instance, by the appearance of massive open online courses. The fifth stage has been discovered by extrapolation and points at the possible transition of the main fields of human life, including the spiritual one, to the Internet. ICT bring a significant change into the pace of the spiritual life of the society and influence in a certain way the cultural sphere of a person. The information stream is changing and will keep changing radically. At the same time we witness a qualitative transformation in thinking, perception, activity, interpersonal and group relations forming in the conditions of an information-intensive environment. The process suggested for study by the authors deals not only with the technical changes in the modern society, but also with the transformation of the fundamental spiritual and cultural structures, concepts and ideas.

Keywords: Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), the Internet, spiritual sphere, education, religion, culture
