INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF MAIN EDUCATION
For the first time, the concept of fundamental education was formulated by Humboldt at the beginning of the 19th century, it said that the subject of such education should be the knowledge that fundamental science formulates at a particular stage of its development.
Any scientific thought from purely theoretical developments turns into practical application, the number of scientific directions that have passed into applied application and technology is increasing.
The first aspect of fundamental education is a more in-depth training in a given direction, the study of a complex range of issues on the fundamental problems of the chosen field, which is not required for everyone working in a particular field (“education in depth”). This is what quality education gives.
The second aspect of fundamental education is education, which combines humanitarian and natural science knowledge based on the study of a wide range of issues (“education in breadth”).
Fundamental education is necessary, and it should be built precisely on the basis of a combination of natural science and humanitarian knowledge, a dialogue between two cultures. This requirement is due to the fact that the applied education received becomes outdated extremely quickly due to the rapid pace of economic and social changes.
In addition, new requirements for professional activity arise: the application of knowledge in the form of technologies requires an assessment of the consequences of their application (for example, in the field of nanotechnology, genetic engineering, information technology). The holistic picture that develops as a result of a full-fledged systemic education can provide significant assistance in resolving emerging socio-ethical problems and professional tasks.
Unlike specific knowledge and facts, fundamental knowledge changes relatively slowly and has a long life. This allows them to maintain their relevance over the average length of service of a school or university graduate. The skills developed on their basis to think, independently obtain information, analyze its reliability, will allow the graduate, if necessary, to even change the field of activity.
Fundamental education is a starting base for the socialization of a person, a stable habit of learning; "Language training" as a means of obtaining information and communication; knowledge of the language of mathematics as a universal language for constructing theories of the surrounding world, which can be used in the study of any branch of science and in mastering any professional activity; knowledge of information technology. Then, fundamental education (regardless of the level and stage) allows one to start skilled labor, in contrast to unskilled labor, which does not require special training, and from low-skilled labor, which allows a short professional training to start.
