Аннотация: Background: A lot of spheres of modern society are determined by ‘knowledge’ resources, and this fact makes it more actual a problem of interaction between cognitive technologies and social technologies. So, we have to examine the abilities of all social subjects to generate knowledge, which is used for the changes and construction of social reality according to the personal needs of individuals and the needs of social groups. Results: Even the most valuable ideas and technologies can be realized in non-adequate way if they are put into the context of entirely different knowledge without necessary modifications. When different strata of society are involved in various social projects, cognitive technologies intensify their influence, which leads to high competitiveness between businesses and states in the global world. The technocratic approach in social life understanding should be countervailed by humanitarian reflection and practice. Research implications: ‘A society of knowledge’ being formed and global development tendencies being increased, the importance of cognitive aspects in such spheres of social activity as information search and processing, activity planning, knowledge regulating and creative thinking will be emphasized. Conclusions: Cognitive technologies becomes an integral part of high tech together with nano-, bio-, info- and social technologies. When used without special cognitive investigations any social technology can make the situation worse in a paradox way despite the fact that it is directed at positive goals and all the rules of technological innovations are kept strictly.
