Introduction. The philosophy of I.A. Ilyin proposes a program for the renewal of society while returning to the spiritual tradition, which seems to be relevant for modern humanitarian education.
The aim of this research is to reconstruct the concept of creative doing in the I.A. Ilyins philosophy and to demonstrate of its application in the organization of design and research work of universities students in the framework of humanitarian education.
Materials and methods. Based on the analysis of modern research literature and works of I.A. Ilyin, theoretical and hermeneutical methods were used in this work, as well as the design and research method of organizing educational work with students.
Research results. Creative doing is the creative implementation of each person’s life project in real conditions. The concept of creative doing consists of four points: 1) creation of oneself; 2) building your own business; 3) building a family and raising children; 4) social and cultural creation. In the philosophical works of I.A. Ilyin, you can find this concept. By discovering spiritual reality, a person comprehends God’s plan for himself, his “calling”, freely accepts it and responsibly implements it in his life. The family, created on the basis of the spiritual community of the spouses, transmits the spiritual tradition and creates a new, more creative generation. Patriotism is brought up in the family, the transition to the concepts of the Motherland, the state, domestic and world culture is carried out. The topics are named and the stages of organizing the design and research work of students are presented.
Discussion and conclusions. The novelty of this research lies in the combination of theoretical (philosophical ideas of I.A. Ilyin) and practical (long-term practice of organizing students’ design and research work) approaches, which allows solving educational problems within the framework of humanitarian education. The concept of creative doing allows you to combine a personal approach with domestic traditions and public good.
