Chapter Summary

As a child Vasilii Zenkovskii had been deeply religious, but at the age of 15 he began to read the radical man of the sixties, Dmitrii Pisarev. His atheistic period and his enthusiasm for this naturalism, however, were relatively short.In Russian Thinkers and Europe, Zenkovskii criticises Solovev for not sufficiently acknowledging the values of Russian Orthodoxy. Russian philosophy is more than just Philosophy in Russia. The emergence of philosophy in the ecclesiastical consciousness finds its parallel, furthermore, in what takes place outside the church, with the difference that outside it secularisation lasts longer and is more penetrating. Zenkovskii outlines his idea of what pochva consists of more specifically in the chapter entitled Until Peter the Great. Vladimir Solovev holds a central place in Zenkovskii's narrative.

Keywords:Russian philosophy; Vasilii Zenkovskii; Vladimir Solovev
