Research of intellectual elite of Kazakhstan is topical to use because our country faces with a task of upgrade of society, first of all upgrade of institutes, values and culture. To solve this task taking into account experience of the East Asian countries and according to the estimates of the Russian scientists, it takes thirty-forty years at least. Thus, the elite possessing some qualities capable to support a platform concerning the main national values and the purposes is necessary.

30’s of the 20th century brought Kazakhstan and all Soviet Union a loss. It was mass cleaning among the intellectuals, administrative elite of the country and military. Elite was struck step by step during the Stalin’s times. In Kazakhstan the elite interlayer was destroyed almost completely.
