Objective need for advanced modernization of public consciousness

A profound philosophical analysis of modern social processes taking place in the world, including in Kazakhstan, was once again demonstrated by President Nursultan Nazarbayev in his article "Looking to the Future: Modernizing Public Consciousness."

He gives an answer to the main question: how to make a step together in the way of becoming "a united nation of strong and responsible people" in Kazakhstan.

 None of the factors alone or even a combination of them can ensure the successful passage of the third modernization of Kazakhstan without leading a radical change in public consciousness, which objectively requires the creation of a new type of education, where the main goal and ideal will be the formation of a person with high professional competence combined with a deep essence of man himself, his humanitarian culture.

The humanization of education (which in recent years has been curtailed and often destroyed) is the creation of conditions for the development of a competitive personality that possesses not only and not so much highly specialized training as civil qualities, the ability to learn new forms of social communication capable of living in a rapidly changing world.

How actual and timely these words sound and gives hope for the successful development of our country as a respected and authoritative member of the world community.
