The subject of research is the large-scale alienation as a social phenomenon. The aim of this work is the consideration of individual symptoms and areas of alienation in the history of mankind and in the modern information society, and the disclosure of its logic and patterns. Methodologically, the study is based on the historical, information and cybernetic approaches. The paper points to a positive feedback between the amount of knowledge in alienated form and figures of society, the development of its comprehensive intelligence. The number of stages and directions of alienation are indicated. Interaction between the material and direct forms of alienated knowledge with the formation of a positive feedback between them is marked. A number of forms of alienated knowledge that appeared in the last two centuries are listed. New forms of exclusion, which exist in the form of artificial intelligence, robotics, and global computer networks, are analysed. The question of the limits of alienation as a process in the context of the paradigm of the limits of destruction is discussed.
