Title variants

Research in Russian philosophy in the Czech environment after 1990

Languages of publication



This article discusses the historiography of Russian philosophy in the Czech environment after. After a brief characterization of its beginnings, associated with the name of T. G. Masaryk, and the developments during the interwar and postwar eras in Czechoslovakia, the analysis then moves into the situation after 1990. It distinguishes two phases: the 1990s, which are primarily associated with the introduction of new authors, and the phase that began after 2000, when studies and monographs begin to appear to a greater extent in the historiography. What has been distinctive in Czech research is the preponderance of non-philosophers among the researchers. The most significant trends in the research are considered to be the literary-historical, historical, and theological. The article acquaints readers with the main personalities who engage with Russian philosophy in the Czech Republic and briefly introduces their areas of research and main works. It also touches upon the institutions and publishing houses that focus on Russian thought. At the conclusion it pauses to contemplate the outlook for the future of this field through probes into the student theses defended at Charles University.
