Outlines of National Self-Consciousness. From Sobesednik to Sovremennik

Social Sciences. 2012. Vol. 43. No. 3. P. 45-55.

This article refers to two periodicals which twenty years ago represented opposing points of view on the problems of Russian national consciousness and national identity.1 However, this article is not about them, but about Russian journals published in the 18th—19th centuries: Sobesednik lubiteley rossiiskogo slova (Interlocutor of Lovers of the Russian Language) and Sovremennik (Contemporary) issued by Aleksandr Pushkin. The lessons of those historical debates far removed from us in time are no less instructive and in some ways no less significant than contemporary discussions.
