About Philosophical Sense of Category Reliability

Nikolay I. Petrov, Angel D. Tanev


The article presents an analysis of the philosophical category reliability amid its polysemy and the current trend towards the convergence of technical, economic and socio-biological sciences. It is emphasized that the tasks for the optimization of existing technical problems in the world are intertwined with the problems of economic and social systems. In other words, it makes sense to talk about the reliability of the society and its systems not only in the gnoseological plan, but also in terms of his ontological characteristic and criterion for development. The necessity for theoretical analysis and synthesis of ultra-large and ultra-complex systems for cybernetic management requires reinvention of the old philosophical categories from the time of Greek philosophers: Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato.
