Value Orientations Of Modern Youth


In different historical epochs, society has always worked out the laws of existence based on morality and ethics to avoid chaos. Societal values become the basis for morality, ethics, and rules. Depending on the era, country, and culture, values may differ and change. At the same time, there are universal values. A human life value is recognized around the world, for instance. The importance of societal values is significant because they are the basis of the social system and order. In other words, developing a value system is the basis for societal functioning and existence. It is essential to understand that being is a subjective thing. Values are constantly changing and transforming under the influence of social factors and the peculiarities of time. In the encyclopedic dictionary of psychology and pedagogy, you can find the following definition of social values. They are beliefs shared by society or a social group about the goals we need to achieve and those main ways and means that lead to these goals. The study of the values of modern Russian youth is topical due to many factors. Firstly, young people act as a driving force for the development of society as a whole. The same can be said about modern young people. Secondly, there is a process of polarization among young people in contemporary Russian, which requires a deeper analysis of the position of young people, in particular, the study of the values of youth and the motives that underlie their behavioral activity.
