Abstract

'The transformation process of informational society into a scientific one is not guided by philosophy, or more precisely, is not guided by any kind of the explicated ontology which can be a good enough foundation of the social and individual life sense, the sense of the scientific progress, ethics, aesthetics and values in general. But, starting from Einstein's controversial belief that "physics is an ontological science", or the science which deals with being, we would very quickly realize what we really need to comprehend, the essence of our technology based civilization and to establish its conscious development control. That what we need is the universal thought or unified comprehension of humanities and exact sciences at the ontological level, i.e. their synthesis in a "New Ontology".
