Language as a bearer of the people’s sociocultural memory is the basis of the nation’s world perception. Linguistic view of the world – a number of micro and macrocosms reflecting the results of cognitive activity of a human being as a representative of the linguocultural community or ethnic group – is constructed through linguistic means, including lexical ones. Linguistic view of the world also creates the basis of the linguistic consciousness of the personality and national state of mind. This article investigates the problem of the language and thinking interaction in the context of cultural linguistics, an area of the Russian linguistics that emerged on the cusp of the XX-XXI centuries, and language education which basic task under the conditions of humanization of the Russian education is to form a linguistic identity. This work states the Russian scholars’ opinion and author’s interpretation related to this problem.
