Bugrov, K. D., Kiselev, M. A. (2016). Natural Law and Virtue. The Integration of European Influence into 18th Century Russian Political Culture. Ekaterinburg, Ural University Press, University Press. 480 p.
The monograph is a result of the research project "Return to Europe: Russian Elites and European Innovations, Norms and Models (18th – early 20th century)". The work demonstrates the process of intellectual transfer in 18th century Russia in different aspects: authors analyze the massive of published translations of Western moral and political literature, trace the implementation of Western educational practices, and demonstrate the results of adaptation of new intellectual resources on Russian soil as a conceptual lexicon. Two such glossaries are examined in the book thoroughly: those of natural law and of virtue. The appendix includes the publications of Russian translations of European political texts as well as hand-written prefaces to these translations.
В издании воспроизводится рукописный сборник с текстами традиционных лирических песен, авторских и анонимных романсов, созданный в начале XIX в. Публикация сопровождается научным комментарием разного характера и предназначается для исследователей, занимающихся национальной культурой и историей словесности, краеведам и всем читателям, заинтересованным в приобщении к истокам российского поэтического слова и сохранении культурного наследия. Это интересная образная иллюстрация для воспитания уважения к отечественному прошлому в самом важном – человеческом – измерении.
The book is devoted to the first Russian textbooks of English which appeared in the late XVIII – early XIX century. Reasons for their appearance, the English language and culture status in Russia, the context and conditions of modern European languages teaching are paid special attention to. Both the textbooks and the English-Russian phrasebooks that were used in practical teaching are analyzed in detail.
The monograph is the first special survey devoted to the history of the formation, reconstruction and characterization of the composition of Vasily Tatishchev's personal library, which merged in 1737 into the Yekaterinburg library of the Mining Department. The Tatishchev’s Library has absorbed the best foreign publications in mathematics, physics, mining, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, astronomy, medicine, architecture, mainly in German, and studying its composition allows us to deepen our understanding of Russia's cultural ties with countries of Western Europe, first of all with Germany. These books played an important role in the formation of Tatishchev as a scientist and contributed to the education of more than one generation of the Urals.
