modern philosophy, philosophy of education, socio-cultural phenomenon, XXI century education, philosophy of culture


The article analyzes the existential, gnoseological, and axiological dimensions of philosophy and education in the socio-cultural space. Cultural phenomena are positioned in several key manifestations: cognitive (as a result of sense experience), value (as a unique phenomenon), and being (as an element of civilization existence). The tasks of the article are to highlight the key philosophical and educational constants in modern humanitarian-scientific discourse. To achieve the objectives of scientific exploration was used general scientific (analysis, induction, deduction, systematization) and philosophical (synergetics, dialectics, phenomenology) methodologies, through which the essence of the phenomenon of philosophy and education in the system of culture are revealed, and the development of these areas of social activity is analyzed. The study was conducted based on an analysis of modern philosophical, educational and cultural ideas and theories. The scientific novelty of the study lies in the attempt to reconcile philosophical and educational theoretical-methodological and practically oriented precepts in a unified socio-cultural space. Consequently, the most effective format of coexistence of philosophy and education in the system of culture is considered to be a synergetic model, which provides interaction of these fundamental spheres of social activity.
