A Russian Thinker or a Thinker in Russia?: Some Tendencies in the Post-Soviet Reception of Nikolaj Berdjaev

2011 (English)In: Scando-Slavica, ISSN 0080-6765, E-ISSN 1600-082X, Vol. 57, no 1, 25-47 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article explores the different ways in which the émigré philosopher Nikolaj Berdjaev has been read and responded to in post-Soviet Russia. It sets out to analyse how Russian scholars relate to the topic of Russian thought, i.e., the metaphilosophical notions that underlie their interpretations, and it discovers a wide range of approaches to Berdjaev's texts: affirmative, corrective, constructivist and dialogical. Behind this variety of interpretations, however, a particularly Russian background, whether of Berdjaev or of the interpreters themselves, has been repeatedly thematised, though currently younger scholars often seek to abandon the formerly prevailing emphasis on national identity in their interpretations. The article thus aims to deepen our understanding of post-Soviet academic and more specifically philosophical culture today.
