Tajik National University
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.
