Summary/Abstract: This paper examines the effects of entrepreneurial education in the socio-economic reality, and presents the results of analysis of the aim defined by the European Commission, the content and methods of teaching entrepreneurship, as well as theoretical assumptions underlying the developed concepts, especially regarding the human nature. The paper is of a theoretical character. Adequate literature, research results, official documents and reports, textbooks and educational materials have been analysed for the purpose of this work. As a result of research, the major problems – as well as their reasons – have been identified. Finally, realistic intellectual tradition has been proposed as a remedy for these problems. Realistic philosophy indicates the supreme role of will and intellect of a student in his cognition, as well as in his learning. These mental powers direct him to his aim. Also, the realistic role of teacher has been explained, as well as the concept of common good in education and entrepreneurship.
