Abstract

The paper is dealt with the analysis of the importance of teaching of social sciences (social philosophy, sociology, political science, ethics, etc.), their role in the formation of not only a highly qualified specialist who meets the requirements of modern civilization with its new technologies, but also the reproduction of a personality of moral and spiritual potential. Modern civilization is facing with new challenges on a global scale that were previously unknown - the global environmental crisis, climate change, global social problems-poverty, terrorism, etc. Teaching in higher education should be based on the synergistic approach, focusing on the means of ensuring of students’ self-education, self-reflection, and their desire for continuous self-improvement in order to adequately respond to the challenges of modern civilization. This is possible within the framework of subject-subject relations, in which the teacher provokes interest not only in the knowledge of the surrounding social world, but also in self-reflection. The ethical understanding of knowledge, focused on the knowledge of the external world, is constructed. The synergetic approach includes subject-subject relations which are the process of co-creation of the teacher and the student. And in this case, a large place belongs to the social sciences. The paper reflects the authors' long-term experience in teaching social sciences at the University and the role of these sciences in shaping of the student's personality.

Keywords pedagogical activity, global problems of modern civilization, the synergetic approach, self-realization of personality, educational process as co-creation of the teacher and the student, education and social sciences
