 The paper is a philosophical analysis of the role of the European intellectual traditions in the development of the ideals and norms of scientific rationality. The prerequisites for the development of scientific rationality can be explained by the existence of an unique combination of favorable social and spiritual factors in the innovative scientific and technological development in the Western part of Europe during the 17th and the 18th centuries – the time when the Greek intellectual heritage was „absorbed”, with its liberal spirit and theoretical loftiness; when philosophy began to develop by means of a better understanding of the activities of the subject of knowledge, as an echo of the telling growth of human activity in society. The present day crisis in the Western educational system is rooted in the underestimation and deliberate rejection of critical thinking
