The article deals with the issues of the humanitarian education system in the information society. The initial prerequisites are the spread of a technocratic approach to determining priorities in education, professional development of personnel, based on new strategies aimed at training a specialist, who has a high degree of knowledge of information technologies but does not have a general humanitarian culture. This situation can lead to negative civilisational implications over time because scientific and technological progress without considering the cultural component can cause moral and spiritual regression. The article substantiates the important role of humanitarian education in the system of fundamental education. Humanitarian education is perceived as a set of knowledge about the history, development patterns of human civilisation, showing the intellectual level of human society, its self-consciousness, the need for a holistic approach to studying human beings and the world around them. Humanitarian education should ensure the formation of moral consciousness, the worldview, and the life stance of the individual, his qualities, beliefs, and motives of activity. When preparing the article, the authors used the analysis and synthesis method, as well as a method of systematisation of the empirical and theoretical data available on the topic under consideration. The outcomes of the conducted research, their scientific novelty, consist in identifying humanitarian education priorities in the current context, its role in forming ideas about values, and the individual’s worldview. As stated in the article, the main task of humanitarian education is to create conditions for forming an individual’s worldview, moral consciousness, life stance, beliefs, motives, and to develop his qualities.
