For this purpose, the new generations recognize the important values of the past, the Turkish scientists and give them the value they deserve. This project also contributes to the reminding the importance of the Turks in the history of thought and culture, and bringing these works in Arabic, Persian and different Turkish dialects, which are of great importance in Turkish thought history, to the 21st century readers.
