Abstract


The article carries an analysis of the essence of specialist’s methodological thinking as a quality level of their professional mental activity. It is argued that the scientific basis of understanding of methodological thinking is the postulates of metacognitivism, which describe the specific properties of meta-thinking as thinking about thinking, and systematic mental-activity approach, according to which it is a new form of organization of thinking, aimed at forming a special knowledge of meta-control, meta-regulation, personal mental activity development.

Methodological thinking of specialist is the highest level of his mental activity; unlike object-oriented and action-oriented levels of thinking, it loses situational and spatiotemporal limits, becomes more verbalized, is carried out according to certain rules because of methodological reflection. It takes the cognitive, developmental, semantical and mental-regulating function. The result of methodological thinking of specialist is creation of it's own cognitive schemes, the project of his professional activity.

The article notes that the development of methodological thinking is an important task as a specialist training and his post-graduate education. It should ensure the implementation of the educational process in special forms and methods, actualizing such mechanisms as the metacognitive verbalization, objectification, schematization, metaphorization, rationing.

Keywords: methodological thinking, professional thinking, professional development, specialist, mental activity.
