Chapter Summary

The person portrayed in this chapter, Aleksandra Vladimirovna, is a generation older and therefore her life trajectory was primarily shaped in the Soviet period. While one particular trip to England and reading world literature and religious books have had particular influence on reshaping her post-Soviet moral personhood, her embodied morality was mostly cultivated within the Soviet context. It is of particular interest in the chapter, to notice to what degree Aleksandra Vladimirovnas moral narratives coincide or diverge from the narratives portrayed. For twenty years Aleksandra Vladimirovna lived the life of a good member of the Soviet intelligentsia. Throughout all of her conversations with Jarrett, each of the experiences of Aleksandra Vladimirovna are often visible contributing to the depth of her narratives. Aleksandra Vladimirovnas complex conception of morality is the realization that embodying and enacting Gods morality is a life long process.

Keywords: Aleksandra Vladimirovna; Gods morality; Jarrett; post-Soviet Russia; Soviet intelligentsia
