Sources russes de la pensée de Georges Gurvitch : écrits de jeunesse dans les annales contemporaines (1924-1931)
Research has traditionally emphasized French and German influences on Georges Gurvitch’s thought. Recent works tend however to incline towards its Russian influences. This paper attempts to pave the way for the forthcoming study of Gurvitch’s Russian
influences. It is based on eleven works by Gurvitch, published in the Russian-emigration journal Annales contemporaines between 1924 and 1931. This study proper shows the importance of social totalities in early Gurvitch’s thought. Besides, the paper offers a
brief survey of Gurvitch’s Russian path and gives the reader an unabridged translation from the work’s « Ethics and Religion » last part (1926).
