Abstract: In the context of the transformation of social institutions and the ideological reconstruction of Russian society, the social and philosophical interpretation of censorship is regarded as the basis for the development of a new information policy. The term of censorship is considered ambiguous in the modern world. Censorship as a form of state control of mass media content does not correspond to the declared values of a democratic society. However, censorship also acts as the most important condition for the functioning of the state. Censorship has, furthermore, the property of adapting to a changing social reality, to the peculiarities of social being, and, due to this circumstance, a study of the existence and functioning of censorship in the societies at different stages of state development has both theoretical and practical significance.
