Summary/Abstract: The article considers the consequences of abandoning the axiological ambiguity beyond the sphere of human reflection and experience (including that impinging on students – as shown by analytical and interpretive material). The inherent hazards of creating an image of a world closed in extreme binary oppositions is pointed out. It is shown to risk human (student) alienation from reality and a shift of this reality and the human into artificial formations. Another risk is transformation of values into a set of anti-values which exclude any interpersonal agreement. This may result in a situation in which construction of personal axiological space only occurs at the expense of discrediting values of others and denying their rights to hold them in the first place. In effect, another world is created, in which there is no place for the human being.
