The development and interaction of current anthropogenic social systems result in new objective laws and trends in the processes of globalization. In most countries of the world there are interrelated socio-technological changes due to the market economy of mankind that cover all spheres of social life. However, the process of globalization is not limited to the spheres of social and economic life. This process includes not only society and people, but both natural and man-made environment within which peoples exist. The development of the society takes place in natural medium (the biosphere) and connected with it through different exchange processes both natural at the beginning and man-made then. Thus artificial environment (technosphere), being a product of society and existing within it and biosphere becomes prevalent in social and socio-natural development. Therefore, emphasizing the techno-sphere as being one of the main components in the processes of modern globalization, alongside with society and nature, makes good sense. The globalizing social medium by means of scientific achievements and due to expansion of a techno-sphere continuously changes in and of itself, also transforms the biosphere together with its major subsystems, with no exception of an individual. The expansion of the artificial objects in the world and the reduction of the natural world space have resulted in interaction of three main spheres of modern life: globalizing technological society technosphere and biosphere, both modified by this society. Such reciprocity produces the appearance of compound socio-techno-natural globalization as a unique process of integrated technology-related socio-natural development. All these and many other reasons determine deeper understanding of modern globalization phenomenon being interdisciplinary in its nature and broadening the insight of either processes or modern progress key problems.
