The Meaning of History by Nikolai A. Tye her brilliant new opening essay, Banerjee says of Berdyaev “he was never more than a curious but unwelcome guest in history. He fearlessly engaged it on the level of ideas while remaining alien to its means and ends, gifted with an incurable longing for transcendence. Arrested on political suspicion-by Czarist and then by Mesning police–he died in exile in France incarrying forth his intellectual work until the end.
Berdyaev considered the philosophy of history as a field that laid the foundations of the Russian national consciousness. Its disputes were centered on distinctions between Slavophiles and Westerners, East and West.
The Meaning of History was an early effort, following World War I, that attempted to revive this perspective. With the removal of Communism meanin a ruling system in Russia, that nation returned to an elaboration of a religious philosophy of history as the specific mission of Russian thought.
This volume thus has contemporary significance. Its sense of the apocalypse, which distinguishes Russian from Western thought, gives the book its specifically religious character. In order to grasp and oppose the complex phenomenon of social and cultural disintegration, Berdyaev hisyory that human beings must rely upon some internal dialectic.
After the debacle of the war, the moment arrived to integrate Russian historical experiences into those of a Europe, which, although torn by schism, still claimed to be the descendant of Christendom. The book is remarkable for its powerful stylistic grace, and astonishingly contemporary feeling. Paperbackpages.

A fun read of a book by a great, inspired and sometimes too effusive mind.
View on the history which is opposite to Marxist dialectics. It don’t need to be considered as negation but as supplement of it.
The book is rich with many excellent metaphysic insights, and I think the core theme especially is confrontation between Hellenism, Judaism and Christianity. Of course, keep in mind there are some idealistic nonsenses which you need to take with a caution, but overall this book has greatly enriched my understanding of history because this is its only concept that can c View on the history which is opposite to Marxist dialectics.
