One of the most arresting characteristics of modern Russian culture is its acute self-consciousness. There has surely never been a society more deeply and exclusively preoccupied with itself, its own nature and destiny. From the eighteen-thirties until the present, the subject of almost all critical and imagine writing in Russia is Russia. This article examines the Russian virtues, its doctrines and ideological policy, and the destiny of Russian individual and society. It evaluates the historic role of Russia among the nations.
