The Political Philosophy of Russian Liberalism

P. 3-14.

Abstract. The history of Russian liberalism reflects the transformation of intellectual
and political culture that took place in Russia from the eighteenth to the beginning
of the twentieth century. The legacy of the Russian liberal thinkers requires
close attention and study because it allows us to formulate the most important and
relevant question: is the liberal project even possible in Russia? This chapter
attempts to analyze the main ideas of the political philosophy of Russian liberalism
and considers different national models of liberalism, such as those allowing for
traditional cultural values, among other things. This analysis proposes a new intellectual
tradition of Russian liberalism, as distinct from the Soviet version, and also
introduces the reader to the historical-philosophical tradition of research on Russian
liberalism from the eighteenth to the beginning of the twentieth century.Abstract The history of Russian liberalism reflects the transformation of intellectual
