V. P. Sedov
Keywords: human existence, independence, consciousness, subjective-personal problem
Pages: 192-196


The purpose of the article is to show that education in present condition must change the former concentration of the main efforts of the young specialist on the professional activity only. The author notes that the purpose of life is often substituted by the purpose of professional activity. Realization of the purposes of life, which exceed professional aspiration, is a main way of shaping independence. This or that orientation of the person on the purpose of human existence is reflected in consciousness in minimum or complete spiritual independence. The author introduces the notion of "subjective-personal problem", within the framework of which he studies the sources of self-movement of consciousness.
