Abstract: The authors of the article single out a number of worldview aspects of biology and medicine that are not only of pure scientific but also of the human nature. They contribute to forming general cultural competencies necessary for students. Presently a task to synthesize biosphere-ecological, medical and other approaches to life experiencing is set which is connected with the specifics of postmodern society’s culture and the problem of awareness of the constantly changing the world scientific picture. Considering different stages of the developing biological and medical knowledge the authors of the article draw conclusions on their secondary nature and offer to emphasize their general philosophic character in teaching methods. It is suggested to consider the essence of the subject matter common both to biology and medicine – “life”, “living” – through the prism not only of scientific advance but also of bioethical norms. A special attention is paid to the problem of manifested and predicted social and anthropological consequences of new technological structures. The issues of the future biosphere, the process of formation of the noosphere and the possible appearance of a “new” human with improved functionality cause ambiguous socio-philosophical reflection. Various scenarios for the development of mankind are actively discussed both in the scientific community and in the philistine environment. The authors point out that the element of utopianism is present in any attempt at social forecasting and in any social project, since knowledge about society never completely coincides with the real state of affairs. On the other hand, utopias always reflect the real needs and development trends of society: the issues of eugenics, transhumanism, feminism and much more
