Abstract
The conception of the information society, in which information is given the status of this society essence, testifies the modern crisis of rationalism as a philosophical paradigm. The dialectics of such categories as the abstract and the concrete allows us to understand that the essence of the information society as a social reality is not information but abstraction as a separation of all spheres of society and all social institutions from senses and actual content. But it is important to realize that thus the information society itself becomes a poor abstraction and exists exactly as long as we see our own essence and the only guarantee of the progress in information.
