Octvo. 53p. Russian text. Boris Petrovich Vysheslavtsev (1877-1954) is a part of the constellation of Russian thinkers devoted to philosophy and religion. From his thesis on Fichte's ethics in Berlin, he returned in 1914 to Moscow University where he served as lecturer and professor in philosophy of law. Lenin's decree in 1922 sent him into exile along with Berdyaev, and Florensky whose voices had come under the iron hand of Soviet censorship. . It is only now that Vysheslavtsev's thought is becoming available to the West. Melding religious and existential concerns, this is both a book about Russian philosophy and an excellent exemplar of it. Vysheslavtsev was a professor of law at Moscow University and was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1922. He published this major work in Berlin which dealt with the Russian element in Dostoevsky before he finally settled in Paris where he taught at the Orthodox Theological Institute while contributing to many articles to the Russian emigre press. This was his first book and copies that were sent into Russia were destroyed as being anti-proletariat. His vast correspondence is in the Columbia University Archives including letters with Jung (whose works he translated into Russian), Maritain, and many emigres. Bound in printed beige wraps printed in blue, wrappers soiled, some wear to edges and spine, sticker to recto of rear wrap, text clean and fresh. A fair copy of a very rare item.
