Abstract

The course examines new models of entrepreneurial thinking and economic behavior, in-cluding the role of entrepreneurship in the co-evolutionary interaction of the economy and the envi-ronment. The objective of the course is to form the perception of the scientific paradigm, which will allow building structural connections of the functioning of ethics, aesthetics and economics in the students' worldview in such a way that they contribute to the development of a positive supra-systemic effect in the implementation of innovative and project activities. This important methodo-logical technique used to deepen self-awareness will make it possible to find constructive answers to the increasing complexity and uncertainty of the world economic development. The course is intended for students of economic specialties and it involves the study of the main provisions of the theory of entrepreneurship, the stages of the formation of the ethics as a dis-cipline in the structure of humanitarian knowledge, with an emphasis on its interdisciplinary nature, highlighting its importance in the modern scientific paradigm. The course will consider the Entrepreneurial Vitality Model, in which the sustainable de-velopment of the innovative activity is considered as a function with variables that act as sources of the emergence of the entrepreneurial vitality. The course includes five topics: 1) Introduction to the methodology of science; 2) The main provisions of the theory of entrepreneurship and its place in the structure of economic sciences; 3) The main directions of the development of cognitive science and its role in the devel-opment of the theory of entrepreneurship; 4) Ethical and aesthetic principles of entrepreneurial activity. Examples of ethical and aesthetic implementation of entrepreneurial activity; 5) Entrepreneurial creativity; 6) Theoretical and methodological development of the projective nature of human activi-ty in philosophical thought.
