Интеллектуальная тайна Карамзина: опыт философии творчества

Философские науки. 2016. № 11. С. 36-48.

The article is dedicated to the outstanding Russian writer and historian N.M. Karamzin. One of the best representatives of the Russian intellectual elite, Karamzin is a true example of a Russian European who embodies in his work the values of European modernity, scientific rationality, spiritual and aesthetic diversity of national culture. Karamzin’s “History of the Russian State” is an intellectual and moral feat of the Russian thinker. “History” is the first Russian historical encyclopedia to be written as philosophical fiction. The national epic penned by Karamzin holds a deep moral meaning. We see our task in the re-interpreting of the Russian thinker’s heritage, in identifying the moral and intellectual sources of his creativity.
