The article attempts to analyze the culture and education in the aspect of the socio-economic development of the fourth industrial revolution, if culture-centeredness becomes its defining principle; identify the features of the culture-centered educational paradigm. It was revealed that within the cultural-educational paradigm conditions are created for the formation of professional competencies, self-actualization, self-improvement as conditions for an individual’s adaptation in the social space surrounding him, the basis of ensuring a decent quality of life; cultural-educational paradigm creates conditions for integrating professional competence and socio-cultural orientation of the individual. Within the framework of this paradigm, it is possible to overcome the technocratic type of thinking, which is formed and becomes a priority in the era of fundamental changes in the economy of modern society.
