About the Author:

Ilona Svetlikova is Senior Research Fellow of the Russian Institute of Art History, St. Petersburg, Russia. She is the author of The Origins of Russian Formalism (2005).

Review:

"This book seems to me an excellent example of modern studies in intellectual history, for it explores comparatively different and heterogeneous fields of culture - as for instance political ideology, mathematics, and literary fiction - traversed by common ideas and tendencies. Rich in original factual information, clear-sighted in its analysis, Ilona Svetlikova's book will be helpful to scholars specialized in twentieth century's Russian intellectual history, as well as to those who are interested - as I am - in methodological problems of the history of ideas." - Sergey Zenkin, Professor of the Russian State University for the Humanities (RGGU), Moscow, Russia

"The Moscow Pythagoreans reconstructs the political ideology of the Moscow mathematicians of the beginning of the twentieth century, who blended mathematics with mysticism, racism and Russian monarchism. Original and fascinating, Ilona Svetlikova's book is an important contribution to our knowledge of the Russian intellectual history, and a highly stimulating example of cross-disciplinary study." - I.P. Smirnov, Professor Emeritus at the University of Konstanz, Germany and Professor of the UNESCO Department at the Herzen State Pedagogical University, St. Petersburg, Russia

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 186 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.8in. x 0.8in.In the nineteenth century the traditional Christian hostility to the Jews evolved into an often arcane system of scientific and historical theories that served as intellectual cover for darker ideological sentiments. Around the turn of the twentieth century, Russia was the scene for one of the more peculiar instances of this phenomenon, whereby politics, mysticism, anti-Semitism, and mathematical theory fused into a distinctive intellectual movement. Through analyses of such seemingly disparate subjects as the philosophy of August Comte, Moscow mathematical circles, and Andrei Belyis classic 1913 novel Petersburg, this remarkable interdisciplinary study illuminates a forgotten aspect of Russian cultural and intellectual history. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137338273
