Abstract

The article deals with the historical and theoretical value of social and philosophical heritage of the American sociologist Franklin Henry Giddings (1855–1931), who singled out the physical, life and psychological reasons of a social development, preferring psychological. The scientist considered a very important increase in the proportion of conscious and intelligent efforts of people in the organization of society. An important criterion of a social development is the consciousness of kind – the degree of involvement in the fate of human society, the interest in improving and developing. A social process is governed by the laws of social choice and selection. Sociogenetics – the ability of society to select and transmit to future generations the knowledge gained. An important role is played by the collective consciousness, which can be called social intelligence. For Giddings, man is the main factor in the development of society. Human society develops to the extent to which a person develops society. A society is a means of improving the human person and its function is to develop the moral nature of man.
