Summary/Abstract: The education towards values has become a challenge and task of the contemporary education. A rich overview of the literature connected with values and their role in education proves that values are still the subject of humanistic and social interests. Values do not function individually, yet they form systems. They are not stable; undergo changes in line with cultural and socio-economic, and progressive systemic transformations. The text discusses the notion and origin of values, functions and categories of values, as well as gives a detailed description of cognitive and universal values. In conclusion, the author of the article emphasizes a great role of values in education and humanistic pedagogy.
