Summary/Abstract: Having attempted to understand the concept of revolution, which is one of the most controversial concepts in science and philosophy, the author explores the meaning of the concept in different theoretical and practical areas. In order to reassert his thesis (it is unjustified to restrict the concept of revolution to political and social area), the author reminds us about the frequent discussions about industrial, technological, scientific, cultural, sexual and spiritual revolutions. After a detailed reflection on different meanings of the concept of revolution in these areas, the author concludes not only that the philosophical concept of revolution theoretically excels the sociological concept of revolution, but also that the spiritual concept of revolution is superior to the philosophical concept of revolution. Warning us about the moral and spiritual crisis of today’s world, about the ever-increasing evil, the author reaffirms the significance of the spiritual revolution. He believes that the flame of many small, individual, spiritual revolutions could save the world from the threatening disaster.
