The article notes that V.I. Vernadsky paid great attention in his writings to the formation of a scientific worldview in which globalism and evolutionism occupied a significant place. The scientist laid the scientific foundations of the research of global processes and can rightfully be considered the founder of the science of the global world.
The article analyzes the problem of interconnection of security and development and the establishment of the new security concept of values. The concept of sustainable development, introduced in the last decades, combines a unified system of conservation (security) and change (progressive development) of civilization with environmental conservation. Sustainable development in the broadest sense is seen as the safest type of evolution, which reduces to an acceptable level any negative impact on the civilization and the biosphere for the purpose of their conservation and coevolution. It is expected that in the future global world with sustainable development, most types of security, including national and global security, will be mainly provided not through the defense but through this type of the most secure development.
