Problems of Idealism: Essays in Russian Social Philosophy

Yale University Press, 2003 - 468 pages
The appearance of Problems of Idealism in 1902 was a watershed in the vibrant cultural renaissance known as the Russian Silver Age. A collection of twelve essays by some of Russia's most important philosophical thinkers, the volume has become a classic in the history of Russian thought. Its exploration of the philosophical foundations of liberalism--personhood, autonomy, law, progress--represents the highest achievement in the rich Russian tradition of social thought. This translation brings the original anthology to English-language readers for the first time. In a comprehensive introduction, Randall Poole places the volume in its historical context and assesses its significance.
