Abstract
The article describes the experience of using Visual Thinking Strategies in teaching philosophy for engineering students. On the example of training Bachelors of Engineers in Yuri Gagarin State Technical University of Saratov, the importance of using works of art for teaching philosophy and soft skills is analyzed. The authors make a hypothesis, that the explanation of abstract philosophical concepts on examples of works of painting is an effective tool of developing communication skills, empathy, tolerant thinking and visualization skills. All these soft skills are an important element of the engineer's training
