The article deals with the changes that have occurred over the past two decades in the structure of the so-called “lifeworld”, i.e. the structure of social values, identities, ideals, goals, desires, preferences and choices of young students. The paper is based on the materials of numerous qualitative and quantitative sociological studies conducted by the authors and leading sociologists of the country. The experience of countries that went through the same social crisis that Russia faced at the end of the twentieth century provides evidence not only of the erosion of the economic basis of the society but also of a decline of the spiritual sphere. As consequences, we can observe the lack of universally accepted goals and values, the neglect of the political sphere, legal nihilism, exaggerated attention to personal needs, success and achievements. In order to identify the state of the students’ “lifeworld”, a qualitative research method was used: over a number of years, students from leading universities of the Republic of Tatarstan have written texts entitled “My Lifeworld”, which described values, goals, dreams and desires in educational, political, cultural, labour and family relation spheres which are endorsed and denied by the respondents.
