Formation of the human in man - an imperative of national education



The article analyzes the possibility of a dialogue between modern scientific psychology and spiritual Orthodox tradition. The necessity of harmonization of such systems of knowledge about man as Christian, psychological and pedagogical anthropologies is posited. It is noted that only in the light of coordinated and integral knowledge of the higher destination of man, of laws and ways of formation of the human in man, is it possible to develop the space of modern national education. But the prospects of its modernization which are drawn today make the very probability of a fruitful polilogue between Orthodoxy, psychology and pedagogics negligibly small.
