The topicality of the journal is due to the modern specifics of reforming the Russian economy, with the growing influence of globalization on all spheres of society's life, but also with the specifics of reforming the system education.
The issues of the development of modern education are of concern to the educational community, to all citizens of the Russian Federation, who are concerned about the prospects for Russia's development, since the fate of the society and the fate of education have always been, are and will be closely interrelated. These issues are actively discussed on the pages of the journal Philosophy of Education, in the publications of which there is a search for new in education (upbringing), corresponding to the tendencies of the development of society. Social philosophy, as well as the block of problems of the philosophy of education included in it, makes the issues of the development of education (upbringing) the main object and subject of research.
The "Philosophy of Education" journal is intended to become a "platform" for professional discussion of a wide range of issues related to the development of the science of education. The journal offers an analysis of the current problems of the development of society and education, ensuring the culture and quality of education, legal and social protection of participants in the education process. The most important principle of the journal’s activity is polydisciplinarity, coverage of both traditional problems of theory and philosophy of education, as well as issues of economics, pedagogy, and the specifics of modern educational policy.
The main objectives of the journal are: the creation of a modern concept of education, the search for optimal ways to develop modern domestic education, the study of problems of theory and practice of upbringing in education, the analysis of trends in the development of global and regional aspects of modern education. Meanwhile, in the context of some information disconnection and insufficient funding of science, there are often situations when interesting studies become known only to a narrow circle of specialists, and their results are published in departmental collections of scientific papers that are not widely disseminated.
