Annotation Modern era is the era of human resources, intellectual capital as the main driving forces for the development of society, the goal of which was to achieve a decent quality of life, which in modern conditions is becoming a priority goal, the ideal of society development. The emergence of a new stage in the development of society (the era of post-industrialism, the Third Wave, the information society) became a prerequisite for the emergence of a new model of quality of life – “knowledge”, which determines the purpose of the study – to identify the subjects of the “knowledge model of quality of life” in the concepts of representatives of post-industrialism, who put forward the idea that a specifi c model of the quality of life, its formation and evolution are determined by the existing era. The article analyzes the concepts of the creators of post-industrialism. We revealed that each stage of the development of society has its own specifi c model of the quality of life. The bearer of the knowledge model of the quality of life is a social cluster that carries out its activities in professional and everyday life on the basis of knowledge, intellectual resources, inventions, new forms of organization, relationships with each other and the environment. The concepts of the quality of life by the representatives of post-industrialism J. Galbraith, D. Bell, E. Toffl er and M. Castells are the theoretical and methodological basis of the study. The authors used a comparative analysis of subjects, functionality, the need for the concepts of quality of life by the representatives of post-industrialism, which made it possible to identify different approaches to determining the subjects of the “knowledge model of quality of life”. The research materials can be used in assessing the trends in the development of a knowledge model of the quality of life, studying the prospects for the development of society and making forecasts for the future development of mankind.
Key words quality of life, knowledge model, development prospects, society, post-industrialism
