    V.I. Vernadsky noosphere concept as the regulatory paradigm in the context of globalization (based on the materials of V.I.Vernadsky creative heritage)

    The paper considers V.I. Vernadsky noosphere theory from the point of view of its conceptual tendency and regulatory significance in the context of the globalization process. Common features of globalization and noospherogenesis are identified. Currently, issues related to globalization are included in the list of the most relevant philosophical and sociological problems. Alongside with the challenges of globalization, cosmopolitanism, computer communications, ecology, sustainable development, rationalism and culture, the attention of scientists and philosophers in recent decades was attracted by noosphere doctrine of V.I. Vernadsky. Under these conditions, the fundamental provisions of the noosphere teaching can perform regulatory functions, acting primarily as the guiding social programs of environmental activities, ecological education and training and research work.

    Exclusiveness of social mobility channels under conditions of inequality in Russian society

    In this paper an attempt is made to prove that the current channels of social mobility, which previously were available to the majority of Russians are changing their status to exclusive as well as new channels, limited for mass use, appear. Exclusivness of channels is stipulated by both institutional restrictions and the resources possessed by members of the society in the implementation of their life strategies. The decline of the intensity of social mobility allows us to speak not only about the stability and stabilization of the stratification system of Russian society, but also that there is a gradual closing of some social strata. Selection is based on the artificial restrictions due to unequal access to resources and effective channels of mobility.
