Chapter Summary

In 1932, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the publication of the Russian historian Vasilii Kliuchevskii's seminal The Boyar Duma, Georgii Fedotov published an article in the leading Russian émigré journal Contemporary Annals entitled Kliuchevskii's Russia. Intellectual history in its widest sense is widely used today in the English-speaking world for a heterogeneous body of historiography devoted to mental life, as it is defined in a modern dictionary of historical concepts. In the nineteenth century, cultural history was developed first and foremost in Germany, where it became a minor but still clearly defined discipline. The German Kultur came into use in the eighteenth century. The moralism and didacticism characteristic of Enlightenment historiography, in which the author's tone became evident, gave way to a discourse free of judgements.

Keywords:cultural history; intellectual history; Russian émigré
