Izm. has three main goals:

  • A social purpose is to develop inter-ethnic and interconfessional relations, consolidate society round moral reference points and positive programs of spiritual development, to strengthen the unity of multicultural society.
  • A research purpose is to identify and measure true philosophical, value, and moral people’s preferences, to create an accurate reflection of such preferences, so that it will be accessible to analyze from the side of scientific community, public associations, and state organizations.
  • A educational purpose is to attract people’s attention to the sphere of high ideals and values, to give them the undistorted information about possible answers to philosophical and moral questions, and also about different spiritual movements in the modern world.

How it works

The authentic representatives of different religious movements briefly answer humanity’s global questions, bringing out their own worldviews.
Choose an answer based on your first thoughts and reaction. Don’t try to identify and guess the worldview, religion or movement straight away. Once you have made your choice, you will be shortly advised of the outcome.
