The school of the post-non-classical sociology emerged in Russia in the end of the 1980s. More than 20 doctoral theses were written on its subjects. The genesis of post-non-classical approaches in sociology is concerned with the formation of a new scientific worldview. The main features of post-nonclassical sociology are: development of interdisciplinary and complex approach to the analysis of social reality; synthesis of socio-humanitarian and natural-science knowledge; applying polyparadigmatic approaches; extension of the subject of sociology and elimination of the distinction between sociology and other socio-humanitarian sciences; applying contemporary research areas of system analysis (synergetics, diatropics, fractal approach etc); analysis of the effect of natural and cosmic factors on social dynamics. Post-nonclassical sociology pays attention to qualitative research methods and applies methods of mathematical statistics for quantity data analysis. It overcomes the concept of an individual as an exceptionally rational being, considering an individual in the unity of conscious and unconscious, rational and emotional manifestations. The socio-engineering function of sociology also increases. New original methods of analysis have been developed on the basis of post-non classical sociology. We held a large number of sociological researches of different spheres of social life. The results of our researches proves, that interdisciplinary approach in sociology allows to reveal unknown tendencies in the society development and formulate efficient social forecasts.
