for the biosphere and the noosphere

 Abstract

 

It is amazing that almost a century since the birth of the main ideas of V. I. Vernadsky for the biosphere and the noosphere, their validity is so strong today. So there is reason appropriate to say that with his research and his brilliant mind astute V. Vernadsky can be assessed as „planetary phenomenon”. His ideas and his teachings about the biosphere allow to assess the state of our planet.

It should be emphasized on the ingenious foresight V.I. Vernadsky on the role of man as a geological factor whose influence increasingly stands out with its negative consequences. What we can offer an alternative to today's challenges? The answer is knowledge!
