A. Korsak as the First Russian Comparative Economist
The paper reconstructs the conception of the Russian industrial evolution proposed by A. Korsak (1832—1874) who was a founder of the historical tradition in Russian political economy and the first Russian scholar who used a category “industrial revolution”. The author shows Korsak’s contribution to the analysis of the distinguishing features and institutions of Russian agriculture and manufacturing originating from national geography and history. The paper emphasizes elements of Korsak’s conception that predicted both Marx’s generalization of the stages of capitalist mode of production and research of German «Young» Historical School of political economy. The author considers Korsak’s heritage in a broad context of Russian intellectual history, including main political economy debates of the 19 th century.
