The influence of cosmism on the development of social hope

Oleh Masiuk


This paper reveals philosophical aspects of the cosmism’s influence on social hope formation. The relevance of the topic of this work is the need to study the impact of space and its interpretations on the future of the geosocial organism of our planet, due to the increase of cataclysms and catastrophes that threaten the further existence of humanity. We used a dialectical approach, a method of intellectual inversion and a comprehensive analysis for the research and reproduction of social hope at the level of micro and macrocosms. It made possible to formulate a holistic vision of the design of the future and its influence on the further development of humanity. It concluded that the social universe center changes in the imagination of creator of a desired future. New projections of the future can create new social spaces that significantly change the microcosm of man and his interaction with the world around him. It proved that study, the usage and practice of the future designing is a progressive phenomenon for the future of human existence. Social hope should be in the interaction of micro and macrocosms in the social space. This harmonizes the view of the common future. The following obstacles to the development of hope such as the fate, fear and hope of man, which arise during rethinking the impact of cosmos on social processes, are described in the article. These obstacles are the means of determination the vectors of social perspectives. Guaranteeing the future result is a stimulation of social activity of improving the future social space. The author emphasizes that hope can affect preservation of the noosphere and extension of human existence. This process includes the creation of a future design ritual, which involves the rejuvenation of the noosphere, based on hope for each participant in the social space.
