Abstract. Social space is structured objectively (by existing social relations) and subjectively (people’s ideas about the world around them). People characterized as agents of the social process produce practices and, through them, influence the change in the social structure. This is the main indicator of their social and individual-personal subjectivity. This article deals with the problems of preservation and development of human vitality, social space at the beginning of the XXI century.  The emergence of the basic categories of sociology of the life path, as well as objectively subjective ideas of people about the world around them, is a natural consequence of the self-development of the science of society and social practice. Methods. Methods of historical analysis, methods of system analysis, methods of semantic and sociological analysis, content analysis were used. Results. The main causes of problems between man and society in the context of  the transformation  of modern civilization  are formulated. Conclusions. Mass privatization led to the fact that values, ideology and politics were returned to the socio-historical time of the era of primitive capitalist accumulation, the “wild market”. Western sociology seeks and creates scientific constructs that defend, preserve, and institutionalize the hegemony of the ideological Western worldview.

Keywords: evolution, sociology of vitality, man, society, social knowledge, social space.
