Unlearned Lessons



    () (Institute for Economics, the Russian Academy of Science)


This paper deals with the cultural premises of the social-economic dynamics in Russia. This involves cultural traditions, value reference points and moral aims accepted in the society. There seems to be substantial grounds to suppose that the appearance of radical reformers on the Russian political stage is a result of traditional and, as always, unjustified impatience of the Westernizing wing of the Russian intellectual elite that turned out to be at the helm in the country in the early 1990s. A great responsibility for the actualization and intensification of cultural enlightment is laid upon the intelligentsia.
