Problem and purpose. The paper deals with different views on the problem of recessionary processes in the Russian higher education. The authors consider the significant impact of the educational doctrine of neoliberalism to be a significant reason for the systemic crisis of the higher education in modern Russia. The purpose of the article is to analyse the main ideological postulates of neoliberalism that address education directly and turn it into an integral part of the global economy.
Materials and methods. The research materials are represented by scientific publications of Russian and foreign authors, including pedagogical and socio-political periodicals, conference materials, monographs, Internet resources. The following methods were used: source study, comparative description, comparative and linguistic analysis.
Research findings. The authors note the large-scale active penetration of neoliberal ideology into the sphere of education. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of attractiveness of “human capital” and “lifelong learning” ideologemes in neoliberal interpretation, which in fact turn out to be the mechanisms for devaluation of spiritual meaning of education and its commodification. The article presents critical arguments in respect of the strengthening neoliberal position present in the activities of Russian universities: involvement in competition, signs of “academic commerce”, commodification of scientific and educational products, bureaucratisation. It is emphasised that, in the context of the structure of university education according to the business process model, students are offered the position of educational services consumer, which is hypocritically decorated as training of “cognitarians” – creative leaders of the “knowledge economy” era, but in fact – narrow specialists with a set of competences that require constant updating.
Conclusion and resume. The study has shown that the problem of higher education crisis is actively discussed by the scientific and pedagogical community in the West and in Russia; the influence of economic and political processes on the traditional foundations of university education is tangibly realised. However, the search for solution to the relevant problems will take place in different directions: the West focuses more on the political leverage of transformation, while the Russian education is aimed at development within its methodological guidelines. The withdrawal from the crisis and overcoming the influence of the educational doctrine of neoliberalism is possible only through the establishment of a new ideology in Russia.

Video games in the context of screen technoculture and media education: new rhetorical strategies and educational potential
Video games have become a prominent part of on-screen technoculture today, breaking the purely entertaining social labelling framework. They contribute to the generation of new social activities, and also become an innovative media space for the explication of artistic and aesthetic values, political meanings and educational practices. The aim of the study is the reconstruction and analysis of the cultural constitution of video games, revealing the features of their screen rhetorical capabilities, as well as revealing the educational potential of gamification practices and Digital Game Based Learning strategies. This is intended to form the competence-thematic framework of video games as a platform for modern media education.
The methodological basis of the work is the cultural-historical and dialectical approaches, as well as the methods of systemic and structural-functional analysis.
The study made it possible to trace the genesis of the cultural formation of video games, which demonstrated many strategies for their integration into the space of mass media culture. The main rhetorical models implemented in video games are analyzed. Particular attention is paid to the comprehensive consideration of procedural rhetoric as an original way of convincing the user through gameplay, interactive involvement in virtual practices. The foundations of the practice of gamification and the strategy of Digital Game Based Learning in education are considered. It identifies the possibilities of gamification as an innovative methodology for organizing incentives and rewards, and also identifies the range of difficulties and risks of total gamification of the educational process.
Based on the results of the study, it was determined that video games use an original complex of rhetorical techniques that combine both traditional audiovisual formats of narrative, characteristic of other on-screen media, and procedural-interactive techniques. They made it possible to directly integrate the user into virtual narratives, turning them from a passive recipient into an actor. The importance of gamification as a tool for building strategies of internal stimulation with elements of entertaining practices in the dynamics of learning is also revealed, which increases the effectiveness of education. It has been revealed the significant educational potential of video games as a promising media platform in the framework of the implementation of the Digital Game Based Learning strategy. They can act both as carriers of knowledge and as a virtual environment for the formation of competencies in the field of history, economics, literature and social management. Procedural and rhetorical tools allow a person to become a part of an interactive scenario, which greatly increases the likelihood of assimilating information and developing professional skills.

An important area which has not received adequate attention within philosophy and educational theory is a close relationship of the human way of being and education.
In the light of this the purpose of the article is Janus-faced, looking both inward at reconstructing a mental image of a man that is central for scholars’ worldview and outward at designing a philosophical model that would be keeping with the current challenges of education.
Drawing attention at the widespread of electronic technologies in our life it is argued that the idea of a man as embodiment has significant educational consequences. The most important one is the possibility to reveal the meaning-making dimension of consciousness which the modern education urgently needs today. The claim that perception and cognition of the world does not take place from the standpoint of “pure” mind detached from the body, but rather on the basis of embodiment is considered to be a convincing one. In this regard, one of the primary missions of education is to reveal and activate the consciousness-body system as a source of man’s meaning-making activity. Furthermore the issue states that the pedagogical vision of the human being as someone who doesn’t have but search for meaning would succeed only if the human being is viewed as an integral whole rather than as separate parts.
In conclusion it is stated that both philosophy and theory of education need to develop a multidisciplinary study of education – anthropology of education. The research field related to inquiry on the subject of education in the integrity of his three dimensions – mind, body and language.

Introduction. The content of educational programs of higher education significantly affects the quality of training of future specialists. With the beginning of the transition to new educational standards in the group of specialities and areas of study «Political Science and Regional Studies», it is important to evaluate the modern one and try to predict the future stages of the institutionalization of political science in Russian higher education.
Materials and methods. As the main research method, a comparative analysis of the curricula of twelve leading Russian and twelve western universities, as well as methods of synthesis and analogy, with the help of which the components of the educational model are outlined, which are more consistent with modern requirements for professional political scientists, were selected.
The results of the study. Political science in the Russian higher school is unjustifiably positioned among the disciplines of the humanitarian cycle, which attracts applicants who do not want to study quantitative methods and receive a wide range of social and scientific knowledge to study the specialities. Domestic programs in this group of specialities lack numerous components that could increase the chances of graduates of political science specialities in the labor market.
Discussion and conclusion. The curriculum of political science specialities must include disciplines that can form competencies that meet the new requirements of information civilization to the level and content of the competencies of a modern political scientist, including “Big Data”, a deep understanding of the relationship of the Internet with the political and other social spheres.

The relevance of assessing the innovative potential of Russian schools is related to the new challenges facing school education today. Increasing trends in digitalization, the transition to distance learning, as well as the continuing need to identify and support talented young people have led to the need to study the limitations and resources of innovative development of school education.
Method of research. Moscow school teachers (N=325) and the parent community (N=790) took part in the questionnaire survey, which allowed us to present a comprehensive assessment of the innovative potential of the capital’s schools. In order to verify the data obtained, the results of the study are supported by materials from focus groups.
As a result of the research, it was found that the lack of scientific study of the implemented innovations (47.2%), which determined the need to create «scientific networks» (78.3%). For 57.2% of teachers, participation in the implementation of innovations is considered as a mechanism for their personal and professional development, which is accompanied by increased accountability (53.8%), a significant increase in workload (54.6%). 49.2% of teachers see a direct relationship between the development of market relations in the field of education and the development of innovative potential of Moscow schools, which is viewed by teachers in a positive way. In turn, parents of Moscow school children have an ambiguous assessment of the innovative potential of school education: 64.2% – Express a wary attitude to innovation, 41.1% – believe that the introduction of innovations increases the workload of students. According to 60.1% of parents, school innovations do not form the desire for creativity and knowledge. The solution to these dysfunctions, according to parents, can be the expansion of forms of public participation in determining strategic growth points within the innovative potential of educational institutions (52.7%), the use of a social partnership mechanism (46.6%).

The author focuses on the matter of reason of teaching humanities in higher education establishments. The goal of teaching the human sciences is often being esteemed simply to expand the students’ worldview. But in fact, it also plays an important role in the process of forming professional qualities. The research pursued based on dialectical and systemic approaches.
The main results of the study appear to the idea that humanitarian subjects in higher education establishments fulfill three extremely important functions: first, they provide the basis for a holistic perception of knowledge and their deep understanding; secondly, they develop the student’s creative abilities; thirdly, they develop his personal qualities.
The newness and significance of the results lies in the conclusion that, without creative and personal characteristics, not a single person, even despite preparedness in the professional field can be a full-featured specialist. They form the basis of the professional qualities of any specialist, and only in terms of them, a person becomes a professional. Otherwise, he becomes one-sided and one-dimensional, because of which his purely professional skills become flawed. Moreover, in this regard, the value of humanitarian subjects is more significant than even professional training. This shows their proximate practical usefulness.

«The mind (talent, ability, etc.) is a natural status of a person, a norm, not an exception» (E. V. Ilienkov) – namely this kind of reflection of Russian philosophers, but with a question mark only, can be represented as some background and/or hypothesis of the present study of the results of education in a modern post-industrial society. Is the model of education proposed in the modern Russian pedagogy based on the competence approach a relevant, sufficient and viable basis for a “normative” type of the personality necessary for the society? The analysis of the ratio of universal and professional knowledge, universalism and professionalism in education was carried out using the philosophical paradigms of universality and discreteness, the Renaissance ideal of a many-sided person, as well as the ideas of a universal and distracted person. To solve this problem, we used the descriptive method, methods of analysis and synthesis in the formation of judgments; a sociological range of the methodology of the activity approach and concepts of social types of the personality. As a result, the need to bring the inner world of a person, the system of his knowledge and competencies in line with the increased consistency and complexity of the modern world is shown. It is proved that such an opportunity is provided by the system of anthropological foundations, traditions of fundamental nature and universality of the national pedagogy, and allows organically mastering the best achievements of the Western competence model of education.
