Neo-behaviourism As a Social and Philosophical Model of Education, «Technology of Behaviour» and Public Management
The neo-behavioural ideas of philosophy of education and upbringing are analyzed in the paper. Neo-behaviourism is considered as an outlook and theoretical and practical pattern of social management. Neo-behaviourism forms the technocratic approach to education and upbringing, methods of modification of behaviour for realization of personality’s adaptation to the social system. A technocratic thought identifies a personality’s responsibility with conformity and submission. According to neo-behaviourism, education and upbringing carry the function of transmission the main values by means of which a personality adjusts to the ideology and standards of societal institutes. The author underlines that sometimes the technocratic conception of education and upbringing replaces the orientation on the valued approach to the acts and phenomena by the requirements of personality’s
adaptation to the existing political, ideological, and moral norms.
