O. Yanitsky offers his observations on the papers of the 19th ISA Congress in Toronto, Canada as published in the form of abstracts. “The North”, so author, is dominant as yet in the world sociology. However the issue of a generation & sociology’s leaders change is on the agenda, as well as essential transformation of the mainstream sociology contents. A most probable point of breakthrough is interdisciplinary research practically not represented yet in the works of global sociological forums. Elements of globalism in related publications will fuse with national and regional specifics of interdisciplinary research.
