Transformation Stages of Biosphere into Noosphere: from Syncretic Consciousness of Homo to Co-Evolution of Man and Nature

The article examines the process of transformation of the biosphere into the noosphere. This transformation is characterized by three evolutionary stages: anthropogenetic, anthropocentric (industrial and post-industrial) and anthropocosmic. The first stage reflects the biogenic stage of the subordination of nature. These transformations were associated with achievements of Homo sapiens predecessors and with the invention of the first tools of labour. The second stage is a technogenic one. It is quite distant in relation to the first stage. It goes back to the history of the creation of more advanced tools for all types of human activity and enters an active phase during the period of industrial civilisation. The anthropocentric stage occurs when the rapid growth of industrial production in the biosphere become irreversible. The third stage is a post-industrial one. Large-scale global changes in the biosphere happen under the influence of the intelligent activity of world civilisation. The leading role of this period belongs exclusively to the human mind. It is concluded that nowadays all the prerequisites for entry into noosphere are outlined. The main driving force should be the world idea of reasonable sufficiency, justice, and ascending humanism.
