It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

Charles Darwin


The history of mankind is the history of an infinite number of changes and transformations – both of the world around us and of ourselves. The progress of civilization is determined by innovative ideas, bold theories, persistent search for new, better solutions, effective adaptation to situations and conditions, unflagging curiosity of the world and its people, continuous expansion of knowledge and skills, exceeding physical and mental limitations. In every story, in every biography, you can isolate key moments or significant moments that fundamentally change and redefine them.  Individual biographies, but also stories of socio-cultural transformations are determined by these moments of breakthrough transformations and re-evaluations modifying our knowledge about the world and setting new norms and principles of functioning.

These are the TURNING POINTS.
