Topic: Interdisciplinary Discourse in Context of the Humanities and  Scientific Studies: Comparative Analysis Human Being and His Perspective in the Context of  Nasir Khusrav’s Philosophical and Theological Interpretations 
Speaker: Dr Nazariev Ramazon 
 
Abstract
At the present time anthropological crisis not only entailed critics on principle of anthropocentrism but it also activated the questions concerning new rethinking of the problem of human being in the context of interrelation of divine, biological and social nature, creating new basis and meanings for the studying of human being both in the context of modernity and history.
 
In this regard the speaker will pay attention on not yet fully disclosed potentiality of Nasir Khusrav’s ideas about the key questions about human being, namely: the sense of human being, concept of death and immortality of human being, his uniqueness and responsibility towards the word. In his presentation, the author will focus on the Khusrav’s thesis where the human being is presented as “the measure for all knowledge” and where rationality is the main way to the “truthful” knowledge of reality and phenomena. Finally, the author will focus on the studying of new possibilities and recourses for development of both theological and philosophical ideas in modern intellectual discourses
