Философ и мир. Николай Бердяев как критик эпохи

Famous Russian philosopher Nicolai Berdyaev was always nowadays, and his judgements on his epoch organically combined a take of the publicist and philosophical outlook. But in every cases his critique of contemporary world was founded on basic principles of his existential philosophy. And he always had courage to challenge the evident. Most manifest proof of this point represents his last book “Kingdom of Spirit and Kingdom of Caesar” accomplished within the days before philosopher died on March 24, 1948 in Clamart (vicinity of Paris, France). Berdyaev as a critic of his epoch is unique as far as his conclusions and assessments are based on intuitive insights and shaped rather aphoristically than resulted from discoursive analysis. But this does not diminish their meaningfulness and value. They deserved to be studied in any particular epoch.
