Presented is critical analysis of methods of support for the course of “Philosophy”. In this polemical text special attention is accentuated on the problem of shortening volume of humanitarian knowledge in university education, as well as on the question of non-correct formulating educational plans, where philosophy is being accompanied by disciplines, as to base philosophical material. Special attention is being paid to threatening tendency of formalization of philosophical knowledge to please of newest educational technologies. Absolutization of such approach would probably lead not only to raising of intellectual potential of society, but also to its degradation.

Key words: philosophy, thinking development, world outlook, integrality, audience time, testing. online technology.
