The 1st year reports were discussed, which are important both in the framework of students' research activities, the development of their creative potential, and in the framework of the formation of a worldview, culture of thinking, modernization of the public consciousness of students, in particular overcoming the influence of the ideology of religious extremism and terrorism and the formation of the ability and readiness to resist the ideas of extremism and terrorism.

It was shown that the inner essence of the phenomenon of religious radicalism is intolerance towards believers of other faiths or a violent change in the existing situation within one denomination. The main goal of spiritual radicalism is the elevation of one's own religion at the expense of the suppression of another.
In her opening remarks, moderator Professor Klishina M.V. drew attention to the high degree of importance of the issues discussed, to the dramatic reality of the pandemic, in which humanity was forced to extract the first amplifications of the influence of the ideology of religious extremism aimed at the formation of quasi-values in the conditions of digitalization of education.
The online conference was prepared and held within the framework of the OPS and the initiative topic "Philosophical analysis of the theory and practice of modern education" under the leadership of M.V. Klishina.
