 The paper reveals the human creative potential of philosophy, which is seen in the fact that philosophy, as “the technique of knowledge in freedom through creation of ideas”, can help the personality to master the technique of thinking and technique to be, and brings him/her into the broad contemporary context, which holds and opens the universal values and sense of humanity, comprehended in their past, present and future forms, and thus acts as a “advocate” and “therapist” of humanity. This potential of philosophy is extremely pertinent and should be actualized in the humanistic strategies of higher education in modern conditions, especially in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. But for that philosophy (and philosophers) has to prove the praxeology effectiveness of its core functions – humanistic, worldview, cultural, therapeutic and maximize its human creative potential and mission in general. That implies an update of the philosophical education.
