The article considers the issues related to the restoration of the importance of mental factors as grounds for social development. In this case, the focus is on the restoration, because at the previous stage of social development these factors were largely overshadowed by industrial processes, which were the main grounds of social development for the formation of new nations. Restoration of mental traditions in modern social development became possible with the transition of society to the information stage of its development, to mass informatization, which created opportunities to involve almost all members of society, all its social structures in the cultural heritage of the past. Mental values are central to this heritage. The current demand for mental values is caused by the fact that in their main tendencies they reflect the ways to solve global problems of life on Earth, associated with the evolution of the human form of its reflection. Formed over millennia, the mentality retains its influence over a long historical period and determines the choice of certain values and orientations of the subject, which are manifested in mental immunity. It accumulates the most important features of social experience. The growing need for national development with the intensification of mental processes is becoming an important feature of modernity. Over the past decades, such opportunities have diminished significantly with the loss or unsystematic use of family ties between generations, the lack of access to historical traditions in most members of society, the national holiday and ritual sphere, with active migration processes. At the same time, nowadays modern informatization, information exchanges based on electronic information technologies enable representatives of all nations, people whose mental qualities are already deeply hidden in everyday life, to restore mental connections, mental features and continue to develop their spirituality. This process contributes to the growing opportunities for self-expression of each individual in modern social development, the enrichment of the creative potential of society.
