RUSSIAN SPIRITUALITY AND THE SECULARIZATION OF CULTURE
MIKHAIL EPSTEIN "RUSSIAN SPIRITUALITY AND THE SECULARIZATION OF CULTURE". “Mikhail Esptein is a preeminent authority on Russian spirituality, and this fine book shows why. With his characteristic erudition Epstein brings the reader to the origins of Russian intellectual tradition, showing how it continues to inform some of the most heated debates in modern Russia. According to the author, this culture occupies a unique position on the intersection of Western and Eastern spirituality, and the tension between these powerful crosscurrents creates a space for the kind of religious, artistic, and intellectual creativity we have come to associate with Russia. Epstein treats these complex, fascinating subjects with the admirable clear-headedness and discernment that make the book valuable to experts and common readers alike". - Dmitri SHALIN, Professor of Sociology at University of Nevada, director of the Center for Democratic Culture, coordinator of Justice & Democracy Forum series.
