History

History of Philosophy and Social Sciences Department

Doctor and humanism, Doctor and citizen ... These concepts are essential and for many years were the main content and purpose of University’s social scientists to educate the medical specialist in health protection sphere. In the case of modern Ukrainian statehood our Department committee to implement the new concept of teaching socio-humanities, preparing the younger generation to accept the new challenges of modernity, mastering of global and national developments in the field of social studies.

History of Department is inseparable from the history of University, and therefore from history of society. It has undergone significant influence and the dominant ideology of totalitarianism 1930-s-1940-s, Khrushchev's Reformation, stagnant state and perestroika hopes for the better. Taking active citizenship position, teachers differently perceived the realities of social life. In that time it was humble praise of the Marxist-Leninist theory and ideology, party leaders, but also honest and principled attitude to what was happening in society, the desire to critically reflect on the laws of social development and tragic pages of our history, to inculcate to students a sense of patriotism, justice, social optimism.

Department has come a difficult way of development and various reorganizations. In the Soviet period ideological factors in the organizational structure and content were prevailing.

Since its inception in 1944 department was headed by V. H. Pypko (1944-1949), P. S. Kryvko (1949-1975), S. K. Zhuravlov  (1975-1976), V. D. Holichenko (1976 - 1979), S. I. Rudavka (1979-1981), A. T. Davydiuk (1981-2002), N. B. Shust (2002-2005), V. P. Latsyba (2005-2008).

It is pertinent to mention teachers, who by their  tireless work helped shape the department’s staff, its best traditions. In the first decades P. V. Shostak, P. A. Polishchuk, L.H.Budonna, A. I. Kadysheva, N. Ya. Zhelieznaia, D. S Tretiak and others worked on the department.

 In the postwar years among teachers stood out for their intelligence, skills, sensitivity to colleagues and students V. N. Orlov, Yu. P. Morohovsky, V. M. Mazylo, Y. H. Telman, V. Yu. Derezyuk, V. S. Bieliakova, L. B. Olshevsky, V. Yu. Vasyliev.

Department of Philosophy was established in 1963. Before this time, the teaching of philosophy was conducted by teachers who were members of the history of Communist Party of Soviet Union and Political Economy Department (associate prof. Laptev. P. M, associate prof. Odnorohov V. U., senior lecturer Ivanov E. M., associate prof. Nihalchuk L. M.). Head of the Department associate prof Danylenko I. M has headed during 30 years. In 1980, associate prof. Danylenko I. M. has defended doctoral thesis.

Since 1993 Department of History and Economics and Department of Philosophy were united into Department of Social Sciences, headed by prof. Davydiuk A. T.

 After new reorganization in 2003 it has became as Department of Philosophy and Department of Social Sciences, and they functioned as separate administrative and research teaching departments of University (headed by prof. Cherkasov S. V. and prof. Shust N. B., associate prof. Latsyba V. P.)

 Since 2008 previously mentioned departments were again united into the Department of Philosophy and Social Sciences.

Considerable assistance in the organization and implementation of the educational process for many years educational and methodical office has provided. Over the years, it was led by V. P. Shevchuk, V. K. Vasylenko, Ye. P. Kysilevsky, H. P. Mamonov, O. P. Tymofieiev. Since 2006 educational and methodical office is headed by V. O. Horina.

One   of the positive features of the department is a constant concern for high professional training of teachers. It is usually carried out through doctoral and postgraduate studies in the leading university centers of Kyiv, Moscow and Odessa. These dissertations of lecturers devoted to the most actual issues of historical and political experience of society, methodology of scientific cognition, and on the economic life. Lecturers of department have prepared and published  a dozen of monographs and reference books, developed many complex scientific issues, and published many scientific articles, reports, theses. The vast majority of them received rave reviews of research and teaching community. Currently, in the Department harmonious blend of professional skills and aspirations of young teachers to research work is very popular. Department has an important role in improving teaching methods, especially in the context of the Bologna process. In the 2005-2006 academic years the implementation of credit-modular system determined the basic forms and principles of teaching experiment.

Section of philosophy provides teaching of Philosophy and elective courses ethical problems of medicine, ethics and deontology in medicine, logic and formal logic to students of all faculties.

Section of social sciences provides teaching of such disciplines as History of Ukraine, Political Science, History of Ukrainian culture, the basics of economical theory, Sociology.

The first experience of organizational methodical securing  of study humanities confirms the benefits concerning  intensification of educational process; the systemization  of learning of material; increasing of student’s motivation and responsibility over  the results of the study; study of program material by its clear distinction in meaning and in time.

The significant achievement is renewal of courses in History of Ukraine and Political Science, History of Ukrainian culture, and the central to which is given to the study of the history of Ukrainian statehood at different stages and in different conditions of civilizing process, the formation of modern political institutions.

Department is full of aspirations in continuation to maintain persistent search for highly efficient forms and methods of educational work, to fill it with modern didactic and informative materials, to promote civil coming-to-be of young doctors, increase the glory of National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsia.
