The article aims to trace the cultural continuity of generations in Russian context by studying the interaction between literary preferences of modern students and their moral choice. Special attention is paid to the role of humanitarian education in forming both literary taste and moral values of young people.
Our approach includes both sociological and cultural methods. The article analyzes the results of a sociological study conducted in 2019, where the semiotics of behaviour in hypothetical conditions of setting up one's own business by young specialists is superimposed on the literary priorities of the respondents.
Our hypothesis is that, despite the processes of globalization, national cultural and moral values that originated in the XIth century in the ideas of Metropolitan Hilarion, who proclaimed the internal law above the external, continue to live and largely shape the worldview of modern Russian youth. This philosophical heritage is transmitted, in particular, through
humanitarian education and especially through the works of classical Russian literature, as shown by the analysis of the results of our sociological research. The article also outlines directions for further development of the topic we have studied.
