A narrow (sociological, and also social and economic) approach to definition of globalization phenomenon concentrates the researchers’ attention upon social and economic transformations (e.g. social regularities). In contrast to it, the broad understanding of this phenomenon, being beyond the scope of solely economic relations, allows to have a comprehensive look on this process of emerging of new integrated regularities of the world economy’s development, and also understand the peculiarities of social, ecological and economic interconnections arising nowadays. The technocratic type of development of a modern globalized society, supported by usage of achievements of science and broadening the artificial living environment, leads to continuous transformations in economy and society, biosphere, its most important sub-systems (including human). Among the tendencies of a modern market and technocratic development of society and nature shall be mentioned: modernization of technocratic-oriented activity of nature’s society (its biological processes and creation of transgender organisms) based on machine technology; constant economy growth based on manufacturing of artificial components; making a post-biosphere universal economic system etc. These and many other interrelated changes in the society and economy, technology, nature are reflected in the studies of global socio-technical processes. There is a necessity to execute innovative modernization of economies purely on the basis of scientifically reasonable and socially critical formation of a worldwide technosphere and realization of a sustainable growth concept.
