The post-industrial revolution and its political consequences

Jakub Potulski


At the turn of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, residents of highly developed countries (Europe, the USA, Japan) faced rapidly occurring civilizational changes. The deep transformation of social life is connected with the development of information technologies, as well as with the second industrial revolution (computerisation, automation, robotization) and globalisation processes driven by information and communication technologies. Researchers more and more often point out that the changes are so fundamental that we can talk about the birth of a new type of society – information society. The transformation of social reality is a challenge for political sciences, which face the necessity to recognise the effects of civilisation changes connected with the information revolution and the formation of global information society. The way of organising social life is changing, and thus new lines of social divisions and new fields of political conflicts are emerging. The complex and intricate nature of the occurring changes hampers an adequate explanation of the processes currently taking place in the sphere of politics. Trying to introduce a certain order in the analyses of political reality, one can make an attempt to find a research scheme whose heuristic capabilities would enable a better understanding of current processes.
