The article characterizes the current state of profession as a social institution. After a long path of institutionalization in the postmodern era profession is facing a crisis. Deprofessionalization as the general state of the institute includes the crisis of its individual components: a professional ethos, identity, changing of the motives of professional activity and typical behavioural practices. The authors attempt to outline possible ways of reconstruction of professions through the revival of professional ethos.
