  1. “The Great Idleness Crisis”: robotization and the associated radical contraction of the labor market. This is first and foremost.

    Virtualization, the formation of a mature information society with all the consequences-like the crisis of education. Space expansion: the world becomes “open” again, dissatisfied with where to run again.

    Something like this.

  2. We should hope that in the future the sciences and philosophy will unite in one scientific system. Philosophy will acquire all the attributes of science. And then many problems must be solved. For example, understanding mainly the essence of man and the world will allow us to solve all pressing problems in the future: ecology and health, including (and) many social ones. But in all this, perhaps the most important thing will be the discovery of those principles and laws on the basis of which, in philosophical terms, it will be possible to harmonize the relationship along the lines of man — man, man-nature and the world.

  3. It seems to me that this will be a problem of artificial intelligence and life extension. Artificial intelligence is inevitable. It already exists at the level of a 4-6-year-old child. Soon it will develop and be able to solve the tasks assigned to it independently. This raises the question: is it considered reasonable? And if so, is he still alive? A synthetic life form. And if, again, yes, are we gods-after all, we created life. There is a whole series of questions that philosophy will pay attention to. With the problem of longevity and eternal life, the same parsley. Where to use it, with whom to while away eternity, how not to go crazy from the daily monotony? All this, I think, awaits us quite soon.

  4. None at all. In much the same way that religion is now involved in solving the most important problems. We too absolutize scientific and technological progress. Of course, they will remain, but their role will be marginal.

    And the problems will not be the ones that we draw now. Science will not be able to handle them, just as religion will not be able to handle the current problems of capitalist society. And I think they will be connected with the sphere of culture and society.

    In my opinion, we are slowly but surely moving towards a world where the main application of people's strength and activity will be the conscious construction of culture and social relations, through the prism of which all other worlds (technology, nature, space, life, psyche, etc.) will be perceived.

  5. As soon as physics reaches the understanding of the structure of matter (including living matter) so that this new knowledge can be used in biology (including genetics), a lot can happen. And, such that we have not yet dreamed of. It is very good if natural reasonable restrictions are also opened at the same time. But, of course, society will have to introduce at least some of the restrictions “independently”. Moreover, based on the fact that humanity is not ready for any additional restrictions right now. Including, taking into account the lack of faith in philosophy. In the absence of one. Just think about it – do we need it?


    On the other hand, viruses are running out of time. So it is quite likely that you will have to accept the new knowledge as it is. And then everything is simple.

  6. As for philosophy, I think that with the advent of AI and so on. Humanity will face the question of understanding the robot as a living being, as part of society, in fact as a person, that is, the question of transhumanism.

  7. The main themes of the XXI century, as they are seen at its beginning:

    • post-industrial society (unconditional income, mass idleness, loss of meaning in education and profession…);
    • genetics (changing the properties of living organisms, creating new organisms, editing humans…);
    • further transformation of the institution of family and personality (epidemic of loneliness, single-parent families…);
    • information technologies (penetration into all areas of personal life, the influence of information flow on behavior, including direct manipulation, progress in the field of real AI…);
    • virtual reality (the development of IT can lead to the creation of a simulation indistinguishable from reality, in which everyone can retire as in their own paradise, which is a direct link to the Matrix);
    • blurring borders and cross-cultural interaction.
