Presidium, which was held on May 31, Academician-Secretary of the ANAS Division of Humanitarian Sciences, academician Teymur Karimli delivered a scientific report on “The universal significance Nasimi’s humanism”Academician said that, the artistic and philosophical work, which bears a humanistic message, which is under the influence of ancient social and philosophical thought, rose to the highest level in the Muslim world, reached its peak in Azerbaijan in the 12th century by Nizami’s works.

He stressed that, one of the greatest creators, who created his works, imbued with deep humanism, in all three dominant languages of the Muslim East - Arabic, Persian and Turkic, is a brilliant Azerbaijani poet and philosopher Nasimi, who lived in the late XIV - early XV century .

The speaker noted that, humanism Nasimi is the humanism of the great poet, who had great talent and was in love with the harmony of nature and human beauty: the whole world. Of course, in his judgments, Ibn Khaldun also relied on ancient philosophy and the works of such great representatives of medieval Eastern philosophy as Ibn Sina, Ibn Rushd, Biruni, as well as on rich oriental poetry. However, in this general context, it is impossible not to notice that he expressed a number of original thoughts precisely under the influence of Nasimi’s activity”.

Academician Teymur Karimli emphasized that, a lot has been written about the Sufi-Hurufi character of humanism of Nasimi and his love in this context, these questions have been studied for a long time, research continues to this day: “If we consider and evaluate one or another medieval classic which we are study, reveal and evaluate his ideological and artistic convictions in that period from the point of view of his judgments or the opinions of the people around him, this will cause a certain historical interest. However, we must not forget that the secret of the immortality of the classics lies not in the way they thought at the time and that they wanted to convey to the public in the local period of time, but due to the moral values that they addressed to our time. Based on this, it is necessary to re-examine the humanism of Nasimi in the light of modern scientific and theoretical thinking. Before uncovering intricate Sufi-Hurufi symbols, numeric and alphabetic puzzles created by him for his period through the Aesopian language, it is more important to reveal that the poet’s creativity in terms of our moral, cultural and aesthetic problems can give the modern generation and society as a whole” .

Teymur Karimli noted that one of the important features of humanism of Nasimi for the modern world is that this humanism is not abstract, but reflects the specific relationship between people, real human beauty. He stressed that another important problem that occupied the great humanist Nasimi was such a scourge of society as ignorance, lack of education of people, and added that many of the poet’s works are aimed precisely at awakening their contemporaries from the dream of ignorance, explaining to them that it is the honor and dignity of man.
