Abstract

The task of Philosophy is to overcome «severe supremacy» of «the crowd» (Heidegger), which impede a human-being to fulfill his mission. Ultimately, only Philosophy among the other forms of spiritual experience can teach «the state of thought», ability to find a sense, to bring out the objective reality into the beyond. Philosophical education should promote the development of such  skills. The structure of philosophical education should include both philosophical disciplines and those ones provided skills of adaptation to «cultural pot» of any epoch for effective historical and philosophical survey. As far as Philosophy is a «matter of thought», thus the history of philosophy is falling under the field of its activity. The task of history of philosophy is a text practice with reference to the thought of a certain philosopher, with the possibility of Hermeneutics and freedom of interpretation, with the skill to reconstruct the notions thinking over their inner energy, with the experience to convert «chaos» of the closed text into the «cosmos» of comprehended thing.
