The international interdisciplinary conference "The role of mentality in human life and culture"

The international interdisciplinary conference "The role of mentality in human life and culture"

November 08, 2021

Description

The international interdisciplinary conference "The role of mentality in human life and culture" is dedicated to the unique and insufficiently explored phenomenon of mentality. The significance of mentality in human activity and its role in all spheres of individuals' lives, society, and culture is unquestionable. Mentality as a scholarly subject intersects a massive range of disciplines: intercultural studies, philosophy, psychology, history, geography, myth and folklore studies, anthropology, criminology; studies related to business, management, communication, marketing, and other areas. In one way or another, all of them have to confront the manifestations of mentality, which becomes either an obstacle to the solution of a scientific or practical problem or, on the contrary, becomes an additional lens for exploring and understanding a discipline's undertakings and their practical implications. To participate in the International Interdisciplinary Conference "The role of mentality in human life and culture," submit the registration form on the website, and a member of the organizing committee will get in touch with you shortly.

International Interdisciplinary Conference "Real Life and Real Economics"

May 15, 2021

Description

The conference "Real Life and Real Economics" will be held on 15-20 May, live broadcasted on our media partner "Granite of Science" (https://www.facebook.com/granit.nayki) publication’s Facebook page at 21:00 EEST/14:00 EDT. Conference brings together scientists and researchers from more than seven disciplines, practicing businessmen, economists, journalists, as well as specialized experts from different fields. Understanding the fundamentals of the economy can provide answers about the knowledge and skills necessary not only for surviving in the market in unpredictable conditions but for achieving the wellbeing of many, a process which is not spontaneous but mastered.

Discussion questions

  • History of business, technological history of our civilization, contradictions, distortions and invented stories
  • Origins of business consultants and the security field
  • Where we are at? Who controls the rate of change in industries?
  • What is the mystery of the scientific origins of economics and business?
  • Examples of contradictions in the history of business and technological history
  • What is the formula of a business? (Which sciences compose it?)
  • Modern science and pre-modern science. Why are scholars of the XVI-XIX centuries no less inferior but in many ways superior to modern scholars? How do we explain this?

Sketch a subculture

February 22, 2021

Description

Interdisciplinary conference "Sketch a Subculture" is dedicated to understanding what is a subculture, types of them, how they shape personalities, their structure and ideas that continue the existence of a subculture among other issues. Every phenomenon continuously has a set of indispensable traits that allow it to be distinguished from the rest. What are these attributions, characteristics, signs or parameters in subcultures? These and many other questions require innovative approaches and an unbiased dialogue in an understandable scientific language. We invite leading experts, scientists, researchers, practitioners, journalists, photographers, and thinkers ready to support the discussion in the pursuit of truth and scientific patterns of human and social development!

Discussion questions

  • Problems of choosing a research path in studying a subculture
  • Plan of researching a subculture: from the idea to the completion of the research, from mythological and religious to scientific and philosophical worldviews
  • From mythologemes to ideas as foundational elements of subculture formation
  • Approaches for studying the hierarchy of subcultures
  • Ways to explore the attributes and symbols of subcultures
  • Can we consider a subculture as a machine that shapes a personality?
