Chapter Summary

This chapter examines Maistre and Uvarov's exchanges with the twofold purpose of assessing their intellectual influence on each other, and of evaluating the direct and indirect impact that their views had on Russian social, political, and educational developments until the beginning of the twentieth century. The Maistre-Uvarov correspondence dwells extensively on the nature and history of knowledge. The chapter reads Uvarov's policies and educational system as intellectual texts in their own right, and as intellectual contexts of his exchanges with Maistre. It also infers Maistres influence on Uvarov from Maistres letters to him, and from the Maistrian works that Uvarov read, or whose contents he knew.

Keywords: Maistre; Russian revolution; Uvarov
