Toward a sociological understanding of the sustainable development
Novi Sad
Sustainable development is one of the most popular and attractive field of research in contemporary science, both in natural and social sciences. It is a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In this paper, the sustainable development is examined on five analytical levels - macro level, sociocultural, political, economic-technological and ecologic demographical level. However, the main accent is not on exhaustive consideration each of mentioned levels than on sociological approach which shows us that the concept of sustainable development, as a global development theory, has serious consequences for human society and its development. Exactly in this sense, in this paper is emphasized that we need newly reanalyzing the actual developmental politics in all of his relevant segments. This is necessary because the sustainability as development process have a sense only if the crucial factors of social development are in balance and also because no one development strategy or development process cannot bring to desirable effects if it man doesn't understand and support on active way.
