Abstract: It is known that a society climate depends on the quality of ideas, values and meanings which determine it. According to a number of scientists, an individual value system is a determinant factor of practically all human vital ambitions. In the opinion of B.L. Wulfson, the task consists in dedicated shaping of humanistic consciousness of an individual, group, society and finally, all humanity on the basis of the individual value system. K.M. Khoruzhenko regards a value as a conception of what is sacred for a human, class, group and society on the whole their convictions and preferences expressed in conduct. Values are not subject to doubt; they serve as a standard and ideal for all people. And from this perspective we shall consider morality as a value component of a personality on the basis of which other personal qualities are shaped. It is common practice to understand morality as a totality of general principles and codes of peoples conduct relative to each other in the society as a regulator of a feeling and desire and behavior of a person in compliance with moral principles of a certain world view.
