Many ancient authors linked the origin of life to a divine creative act. This point of view lies outside the scientific sphere and scope of our discussion.

Public Lecture: Modern Socio-linguistic and Ethno-linguistic Challenges: A Case Study of Tajikistan
It is assumed that globalisation in the modern world is limited to the economy, politics and culture. However, globalisation also relates to languages. Currently, several languages dominate international literature, narrowing the terminological functioning of national languages. The status of languages is defined in the global, regional, official, national or local context. It relates to the functioning of a language in the global, politico-territorial and local space. This, as well as other dimensions, will be discussed in this lecture.

Public Lecture: Reflections on the History of Pamir Peoples Through Language
Research on Pamir languages provide valuable information on the history and culture of the Pamir people. Linguistic materials allow historians to reconstruct history, the migration and process of resettlement of Iranians in their new areas of dwelling. Elements of ancient religions, family trees and historical phenomena are documented through language. Phonetic and lexical analysis of Pamir languages indicate that the process of settlement of Pamirs could go from west, to east  and southern parts of the region. Moreover, the process of unification and assimilation of the Pamir peoples proceeded peacefully and covered a large historical period. However, it is difficult to determine whether the Pamiri people were original inhabitants or relocated like other ancient people living in the region.

Public Lecture: Model of the Philosophy of Education in the 21st Century
A critical role of education is to detect how personalities are formed to meet the needs of the nation and society at its various stages of development. Throughout history societies set the task to form a personality that is crucial to attain the specific goals of social development. Each stage of development in history presents societal values which are changing and stimulate the formation of this personality and its social portrait. In the 21st century, the demands of globalisation result in new value orientations aimed to form personality traits. This includes traits such as determining a scientific worldview, professional competence, high human moral qualities and a creative rather than destructive mentality. The modern philosophy of education is aimed at addressing these values that form the 21st century personality. This lecture will focus on approaches and tools used in personality formation in the 21st century.
