Abstract
The article studies potential application of an information ecology approach for the analysis of a contemporary stage in the development of an information society. It is illustrated using the example of this approach utilized to study a social element – sociocultural space. The article analyses distinctive features of information ecology as a modern philosophical approach based on holistic and systematic principles which provides new opportunities for the consideration of a human, subject as a center of sociocultural space compared to traditional postmodernism philosophy. By using holistic methodology, the authors develop the question of information essence and its place in society and culture today through subject-object relations; apply the notion of subject's navigation in sociocultural space considered as its inclusion and an ability to navigate in the system of connections between a person and modern information space.
