Invited speech:
Minimalism: where we are now, and where we are going.

In this lecture, we assess the current state of the minimalist inquires in the generative linguistics, reviewing their historical and philosophical backgrounds, and project some prospects and possible directions for the further progress, demonstrating some imminent challenges and obstacles. With time permitting, we will see some recent technical developments that accord with the minimalist desiderata for the generative linguistics.
