The  concept  of  Nature,  which  has  been  central  to  the  common comprehension  of  life  throughout  Russia’s  ancient  history,  has  never  been epistemologically neutral. It was clearly embedded in paganism and  its  underlying  values  and  canons.  What  is  significant  is  that  paganism’s essential  understanding  of  Nature  as  divine  has  been  radically  retailored  to achieve very divergent ends. The interpretation of Nature began to reflect the beliefs  not  of  the culture  as a whole but  of the few who  deemed  themselves responsible to institute a more advanced culture in place of the existing one. In particular, the process of man’s abstraction from Nature has been taking place through concrete historical events.
