This article is devoted to the development of the noospheric approach to the development of education in the knowledge economy based on the teachings of V. Vernadsky about the noosphere. The role of education, in the knowledge economy, is greatly expanded, and the significance of education is repeatedly increased. However, modern education is full of problems and not only material, but more significant - existential problems. The education development is connected with the methodology development of cognition and management processes. The study goal is to explain the features of the noospheric approach to the education development and the relationship with models of paradigmatic innovation development and vertical integration of knowledge. The semantics of the word “noosphere” is the sphere of humanitarian, in other words, political, cultural, legal, cognitive, religious and other social phenomena. The noosphere is a logical continuation of a variety consisting of the sphere of physical and chemical (geosphere) and biological (biosphere) phenomena. The phenomena of which the noosphere consists are integrated through information phenomena (the infosphere).The noospheric approach to the development of education is based on noospheric thinking, as well as the conceptual model of paradigmatic innovation development and the vertical integration of knowledge methodology.Noospheric thinking is replacing the existential thinking that currently dominates. The model of paradigmal innovation development considers three phases: the empirical-heuristic phase, the paradigmatic and the scientific.The methodology of vertical integration of knowledge includes: practice (business), construction and technology, applied theories, fundamental theories, philosophy. The parabola of knowledge become a model of learning based on the knowledge integration from philosophy to practice. One of the most important conditions for implementing the noospheric approach to the cognition development and economy is a high-quality education. Therefore the main ideas of its development in the part of submitting material, understanding the goal, additional education, bridging the gap between the natural and human sciences are put forward. The importance of teaching philosophy, as well as close connection with practice, is grounded. The ways of strengthening interaction between science, education and business are considered.
