The article is an interpretation of a specific way of life in 'consumptive society', and also of its consequences for contemporary education. The author starts with considering the substance and historical sources of consumptiveness. Afterwards he considers place of consumptiveness in the work of the two most influential philosophers of last century in political and educational thought - Hannah Arendt and Paulo Freira. In the beginning, he shows, how Arendt understands rise of consumptiveness, and also how she interprets decomposition of our ability to taking political actions and gradual demise of political sphere, initiated by consumptiveness. Then he revokes to Paulo Freire, who, in 'Pedagogy of the Oppressed', links 'consumptive civilization' with consciousness of molesters and such kinds of domination, whose presence can be seen in what he calls 'banking model of education'. In the end he takes a look at certain changes in education and in consumptive which are effect of the process of subjecting the education to the production of new generation of consumers.
