Philosophy of economy : the world as household by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The writings of Sergei Bulgakov (1871-1944), like those of other major social thinkers of Russia's Silver Age, were obliterated from public consciousness under Soviet rule. Discovered again after eighty years of silence, Bulgakov's work speaks with remarkable directness of the postmodern listener. This translation of Philosophy of Economy brings to English-language speakers for the first time a major work of social theory written by a critical figure in the Russian tradition of liberal thought." "What is unique about Bulgakov, Catherine Evtuhov explains in her introduction to this book, is that he bridges two worlds. His social thought is firmly based in the Western tradition, yet some of his ideas reflect a specifically Russian way of thinking about society. Though arguing strenuously in favor of political and social liberty, Bulgakov repudiates the individualistic basis of Western liberalism in favor of a conception of human dignity that is compatible with collectivity. His economic theory stresses the spiritual content of life in the world and imagines national life as a kind of giant household Bulgakov's work, with its singularly postmodern balance between Western and non-Western, offers fascinating implications for those in the process of reevaluating ideologies in post-Soviet Russia and in America as well."--Jacket

The cross & the sickle : Sergei Bulgakov and the fate of Russian religious philosophy by Catherine Evtuhov( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catherine Evtuhov resurrects the brilliant and contradictory currents of turn-of-the-century Kiev, Moscow, and St. Petersburg through an intellectual biography of Sergei Bulgakov (1871-1944), one of the central figures of the Silver Age. The son of a provincial priest, Bulgakov served first as one of Russia's most original and influential interpreters of Marx, and then went on to become the century's most important theologian of the Orthodox faith. As Evtuhov recounts the story of Bulgakov's spiritual evolution, she traces the impact of seemingly opposed philosophical and religious world views on one another and on the course of political events. In the first comprehensive analysis of Bulgakov's most important religious-philosophical work, Philosophy of Economy, Evtuhov identifies a "perceptual revolution" in Russian thinking about economy, a significant contribution to European modernist thought which both shaped and grew out of contemporary debates over land reforms. She reconstructs Bulgakov's vision of an Orthodox, constitutional Russia, shows how he tried to put it into practice in the wake of the February Revolution, and demonstrates its importance for a large and influential portion of Russian society
A history of Russia : peoples, legends, events, forces by Catherine Evtuhov( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A History of Russia: Peoples, Legends, Events, Forces is a comprehensive narrative conceived and developed after the collapse of the former Soviet Union. Informed by the burgeoning historiography of the 1990s, the text balances political and economic explorations of everyday life, social roles, cultural dynamics, and gender issues. Many texts on this subject are written from a pre-Confederation point of view that may be unsuitable for today's classroom. This text provides strong coverage of 20th-century Russia and the U.S.S.R. without sacrificing its coverage of earlier historical periods
The cultural gradient : the transmission of ideas in Europe, 1789-1991 by Catherine Evtuhov( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there a sharp dividing line that separates Europe into 'East' and 'West'? This volume brings together prominent scholars from the United States, Canada, France, Poland, and Russia to examine the evolution of the concept of Europe in the two centuries between the French Revolution and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Inspired by the ideas of Martin Malia, the contributors take a flexible view of the 'cultural gradient'_the emergence, interaction, and reception of ideas across Europe

Sergei Bulgakov : a study in modernism and society in Russia, 1900-1918 by Catherine Evtuhov( )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation studies the life and work of the prominent public figure and Marxist-turned-religious philosopher, Sergei Bulgakov, in the context of the spiritual and cultural flowering of the Russian Silver Age. The primary focus is on Bulgakov (later the foremost Russian Orthodox theologian of the XX century) as a representative of the widespread turn to religion among the Russian intelligentsia in 1900-1904. I propose that the discovery of religion was for him, as for a significant part of the intelligentsia, a means of resolving intellectual and aesthetic problems, i.e. that they were able to find a way out of the "crisis" of positivism in philosophy and of realism in art and literature by formulating a religious world-view; and that this religious world-view, in turn, became projected onto social issues and thus helped shape the terms of political debate in this crucial period. In studying the religious "conversion" of the Russian intelligentsia, my work makes an essential and heretofore unexplored connection between the cultural and literary life of the period and prerevolutionary society and politics
German Romantic Nationalism and Indian Cultural Tradition by Alexei Vladimirovich Pimenov( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Dissertation examines the German Romantic fascination with India, the country thought by many German Romantics to be the original home of the Urvolk, considered by these thinkers to be the direct ancestors of the German people themselves. In analyzing this German Romantic self-representation through India within the context of the Romantic critique of European modernity, the Dissertation considers this phenomenon as a case of the Romantic re-integration project. The Dissertation juxtaposes four figures - Friedrich Schlegel, Otmar Frank, Joseph Goerres, and Arthur Schopenhauer - who are particularly representative of those German Romantic thinkers who were influenced by Indian culture and who applied the Indian models to their interpretations of world history. These interpretations were rooted in the models developed by the missionaries and the Enlightenment thinkers who looked for the original monotheism outside the biblical tradition. The Romantics, however, highlighted not only the religious but also the national dimension of the connection between the original home of the Urvolk and its descendants in the modern German-speaking realm. In tracing the Urvolk's migration from India to the West, Friedrich Schlegel used as his explanatory model the Brahmanic narrative of the degenerated warriors becoming barbarians due to their failure to observe the dharma. This model was in tune with Schlegel's understanding of the Indian religion as a misread Revelation, and his understanding of the further world history as a degradation and fragmentation of the human race, but it was at odds with his German nationalist aspirations. With time, the correlation between these two dimensions changed. Frank proclaimed the return to the original Iranian-Indian heritage as the program of a religious and national reawakening of the German people; Goerres developed an all-embracing narrative of the original people and its Weltstaat; Schopenhauer portrayed the religious/philosophical history as a conflict between the "wisdom of all ages" and the "biblical theism". These theories represented four versions of a German-Romantic understanding of identity and otherness based on the Indian model, which predetermined the dualistic nature of German Romantic nationalism as dividing the human race not into multiple nations, but rather into the original civilization and the corrupt version of it

One Local Vote at a Time: Electoral Practices of Kazan Province, 1766-1916 by Rita S Guenther( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research findings indicate that the habits of electoral practice served as ready experience and knowledge when the dynamic changes of the mid-nineteenth century ended serfdom and reformed provincial administration, ushering in an era of greater self-government, more direct representation of individuals and interests, and more deliberate expression of political notions. These foundational habits of electoral practice served as a well-spring of experience that fed calls for fuller participation in the political decisions of the Russian Empire through elected delegates to a partially representative parliament. When this call was heeded in response to the 1905 revolution, the bedrock of practical electoral knowledge and experience held by Russia's diverse peoples was already there, laid inadvertently by the processes initially implemented by the central government in need of more efficient local administration
Power in the Provinces: The Evolution of Local Government Practices in Imperial Russia, 1825-1917 by John Corcoran( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation is a study of the political of local self-government in Imperial Russia over the course of the period 1825-1917. In particular, I concentrate on the zemstvos, elected bodies established in 1864 at the provincial and district levels to oversee a wide range of public works and social services. The zemstvo reform and other legislation on local self-government established general areas of operation, but left substantial leeway for the individual organizations to set policy priorities
Modes and Functions of Imitation: Molière, Fonvizin, and Griboedov by Abigail Holekamp( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The imitation of one cultural or societal group by another is a measure not only of how the imitators view the culture they seek to emulate, but also of how they judge themselves. With its literary and performance aspects, theater is a genre with a dual capacity to manifest and comment on culture. This study examines character types in satirical theatrical works by Fonvizin and Griboedov and their connections to similar character types in the earlier French tradition of Molière's satires The Misanthrope and The Bourgeois Gentleman. Tracing these specific influences acts as a lens through which to view the development of Russian theater in relation to the foreign models it emulated and eventually transformed into native theatrical idioms. Broader context on the problem of Russian imitation of France and the West is provided via an analysis of contemporary travel texts and an overview of secondary critical literature on mimesis, performance and cultural transfer. This study illustrates one important aspect of historical socio-cultural exchange between late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century France and Russia, as well as the potency of imitation as a force within a society or culture

The White Priest at Work: Orthodox Pastoral Activism and the Publis Sphere in Late Imperial Russia by Daniel Lloyd Scarborough( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the last half century before its fall, the Romanov Empire experienced the rise of free association, mutual aid, and voluntarism from within its official, Orthodox Church. The clergy of this Church worked and lived within the "spiritual domain" [dukhovnoe vedomstvo], a legally and economically distinct realm of ecclesiastical affairs within the imperial state structure. The state permitted the Orthodox clergy to form independent associations within this "domain" in order to support the pastoral profession through mutual aid, and to work as a quasi-civil service that provided primary education, disaster relief, and other services to the general population. The "white" or non-celibate parish clergy used these privileges of association to expand their professional and mutual-aid networks, which extended from their parishes to the diocesan centers. Ordained clergymen participated in these networks together with their wives, adult children, and lay supporters. With the gradual withdrawal of state supervision over their activities amid the political upheaval of the early 20th century, these self-administering, self-financing networks grew into an autonomous sphere of voluntary association
The Russian Residency in Constantinople, 1700-1774: Russian-Ottoman Diplomatic Encounters by Mariya Vladimirovna Amelicheva( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The long residency of Aleksei Obreskov (1751-1768) serves as the case study for analyzing the development and application of Russian foreign policy. His ability to understand and influence Ottoman foreign policy through direct presence in Constantinople and skillful use of the local intelligence network was indispensible to several Russian rulers in advancing their goals in the Ottoman Empire and Europe. In fact, both sides resorted to diplomacy more often than to aggression. The primacy of the diplomatic approach was evident during the Seven Years' War, when Frederick II of Prussia failed to entice the Sublime Porte to attack Austria and Russia, and during most of the 1760s, when Obreskov was fairly successful in preventing the Porte from interfering in the Polish succession crisis against Russia. However, the imperial ambitions of Catherine II and Mustafa III became the key destabilizing factors in mutual relations
A Plague on Both Houses?: Population Movements and the Spread of Disease across the Ottoman-Russian Black Sea Frontier, 1768-1830s by Andrew Robarts( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Drawing upon world-historical methodology, this dissertation adopts a regional framework to balance the prevailing historiography of Ottoman-Russian antagonism and conflict in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. While not discounting geo-strategic and ideological confrontation between the Ottoman and Russian Empires, this dissertation emphasizes the "transnational" character of Ottoman-Russian relations in the Black Sea region in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. On the issues of migration management and disease control, Ottoman and Russian officials - at the imperial, provincial, and local levels - communicated about and coordinated their response to surges in population movements and the mutual threat posed by the spread of epidemic disease across the Ottoman-Russian Black Sea frontier
