Abstract
We reveal the key approaches to the ethics of care (Plato, M. Heidegger, M. Foucault), and the features of the feminist ethics of care (N. Noddings, K. Gilligan et al.), which implies the denial of the classical tradition of the interpretation of caring for the other via focusing on her needs; also we reveal the importance of the ethics of care in modern philosophy of education, concerned with the impact on such key problems as difficulties in ethical relationships between the subjects of education, division of reality into the different subjects, the impossibility of discussing serious existential issues in the classroom. The question about the introduction into the Russianlanguage scientific circulation of a number of terms used by modern Englishspeaking authors (J. Nguyen, M. McKenzie, S. Blenkinsop, U. Bergmark, E. Alerby) is raised, which works are considering the ethics of care from the standpoint of the student-teacher relationship, moral dilemmas and the calling in students in education to give them experience taking care of themselves and others, and the natural world. The article highlights the directions for the development of the education system in the future, and the ethics of care may be considered as an important basis for the evolution of education (education in the conditions of “reassembling” educational institutions of the future, uncertainty and stochasticity, the search for possible axiological justifications of educational relationships, technological innovations, education as the moral education of a free person of the future). © 2021, Russian Academy of Sciences.
