Prospects of noohumanism in a world without pandemics and collapses

Keywords: crisis of humanity, COVID-2019, education and democracy, humanism, Humboldt's neohumanism, noosphere, nootechnologies, noolexicon, noohumanism


The arrival of the COVID-2019 pandemic is evidence of a clear deterioration in relations between humanity and environment. We are all obliged to find new ways to solve the crisis problems of humanity through the development of a combination of natural sciences and humanities. Among the promising tools is the use in modern conditions of a forgotten concept of "neohumanism" and an improved philosophy of education. The modern tendency of emergence of new scientific terms which are connected with the concept "noosphere" is also investigated. They are needed to describe innovations in higher education, research, production, management, ecology, etc. The new terms form noolexicon. The article presents the author's version of the noolexicon for the higher education of the XXI century and points to the particularly important importance of the concept of "noohumanism" for all human activities in the post-pandemic world.
