The essence of this method is in the determination of the basic category in the process of pedagogical analysis, which possesses an internal contradiction – the core of the row and then other categories related to this basic category are determined. These categories are elements or row categories acting on the pendulum principle. Structural features of the scientific concept (category) “sociality” are different bases of social demand formation for education, determined by the person's needs to get education and needs of society in literate and well-educated professionals working in different fields of human activity, as well as educational levels of various social groups.
