Humanities Educational Practices as the Instrument for Socio-Economic Identity Formation

Keywords: humanities educational practices, socio-economic identity, human capital, social capital, public choice theory, national economic strategy


Ukraine is trying to develop an effective interaction strategy with the world on the socioeconomic and political levels for a long time. There is no tradition of internalized productive economic strategies in Ukrainian society, that is why strategic international interactions has been significantly complicated to our elites for the last three decades. During the period of our independence, we had to learn how to rebuild the state and through trials and errors we were finding those socio-economic strategies that will allow us to achieve the goals. However, the long searching process has not yet allowed us to create a productive socio-economic identity of Ukrainian society, which, in our opinion, is one of the functions of humanitarian education, that it does not perform sufficiently today. The article emphasizes that this phenomenon is fundamental for national determination of economic worldview guidelines in accordance with its contemporary socio-practical needs. During the research was found that socio-economic identity is a dominant ideological economic paradigm in social consciousness and, at the same time, it appears as a foundation of productive socially significant synergistic activities. Actualization of the relevant discourse is an urgent need of Ukrainian society in the dimension of more well-defined awareness for pragmatic national interest value in economic sphere. Therefore, educational practices in the field of humanities should provide an axiological component, focused on training of a comprehensively well-informed and creative personality, capable for critical thinking about prospects and opportunities for socioeconomic development in accordance to actual national economic strategies improvement needs and its necessary formal and informal social institutions.
