<< Inner and Outer Determinants of Innovations, Reproduction and Traditions: Synthetic Approach

On Logic, Frontiers, and Determinants of the Pedagogic Innovations

Gennady Lobastov (Russian State Humanitarian University, Moscow, Russia)



The logic of the human culture evolution brings up the problem about the final stage of this process. It includes the following aspects:

  • existence of limits of pedagogic innovations activities;
  • parameters of the current forms of pedagogic innovations activities;
  • inner and outer determinants of pedagogic innovations activities as sources of their creative and destructive moments.

This problem connected with the content and essence of human existence and being is the center of author’s report.

The modern civilization generates a need for search of such educational forms that, on one hand, are able to keep up the genuine human essences in the pedagogic process, but on the other hand, are ready to stimulate the realization of universal abilities. Historic culture (the set of traditions) is the outer determinant of human abilities development; the inner determinant of human abilities is programs, languages and codes of human genus. The form of reproduction of human abilities of the concrete human being is a case of the separate innovative process. Both inner and outer determinants should be taken into account while investigating and designing innovative pedagogic technologies. A free social personality seems to realize itself not only in the creation of the external forms belonging to the civilization space, but to find and confirm itself through these forms. The problem of interaction of inner and outer determinants of human abilities by education of concrete free social personality is discussed.
