As it is known the statehood is the highest level of the historical-social culture. The nations not having that culture couldn’t protect their national values. The unchangeable function of folklore is just to carry out the national thinking system and national behavior formulas. But it means to investigate the actual symbols and formulas of Azerbaijan and common Turkic folklore thought.
