The study explored one of the most exciting topics for society in recent decades — education, which is viewed through the prism of historical, cultural, philosophical manifestation. The study of the “phenomenon” of the current state of Russian education as a special topic in philosophy is poorly studied and problematic in the analytical sense. The article examines the processes of commercialization of Russian education, a departure from the humanitarian orientation. The significance of the processes of commodification and consumerization for the education system in Russia is shown. Attention is drawn to the understanding of the term “human capital” introduced by the American economist T. Schultz. In the conclusion, it is said about the need to reproduce the traditional education system in Russia, aimed at educating the individual and preserving cultural traditions.

Key words: education, commercialization, Bologna Agreement, human capital, commodification, consumerization.
