In the years of independence, the biography, life and activities of the great Uzbek poet and thinker, statesman Alishir Navai needed to be re-studied and it became necessary to review the original manuscript sources and write them in full. For this reason, the degree of difference between the information in the sources written before the 20th century and the original information in the monograph was determined through comparative-typological and textual analysis. Some unknown aspects of Alishir Navai's life and work were clarified. As a result of the research, a number of new information was obtained, which made it possible to fully imagine the details of the poet's life. In the presented book, neuroscientist, professor Shohrat Siraceddinov presented the results of his long-term research and analysis in this direction in a short and chronological order.
