Abstract

The article analyzes the results of a questionnaire of students of philosophical specialties at leading Ukrainian universities about the prospects of philosophical education in Ukraine. Students answered five questions: «What should be changed in the content of philosophical education in Ukraine?», «What should be changed in the format of philosophical education in Ukraine?», «What do you consider an attribute of academic philosophical education?», «What projects of public philosophy in Ukraine do you know or perhaps participated in them?» and «What can students do on their own in the near future to make changes for the better in philosophy education tangible?» The study of the answers showed that the desired changes in the content of philosophical education are the actualization of literature and topics, inclusion in the curriculum of works, ideas of recent decades, as well as balancing courses, establishing a productive sequence and interconnection of different disciplines. In the format of philosophical education, students would like to change the number and quality of interactions between all participants in the learning process through the introduction of new ways of interaction. Another proposal is to give preference to creative practices over the practices of passive assimilation and reproduction of information. In addition, respondents drew attention to the need to increase the responsibility of the professor in terms of student assessment. Respondents also stressed the need for students to adhere to academic integrity, as well as the need to increase the organizational and administrative activity of students. In general, these and other answers presented in the paper can be considered as examples of student reflection on current issues of philosophical education in Ukraine.
