Abstract


Letters to N.I. Novikov are an integral part of Karamzin’s heritage. In them, while talking about love and compassion as the highest virtue, Karamzin confirms the inevitability of changes both in philosophy and in the man himself. Karamzin agrees that «the knowledge of the true God is the most important and the best of all sciences», but at the same time he emphasizes that only “God knows God completely”, and, besides, he supports Novikov in his skeptical attitude toward the fashionable trend of quoting texts of Scripture. Studying of Karamzin’s epistolary provides insight into his thinking and worldview: from philosophical and historical optimism he goes to skepticism, agnosticism and religious humility.

Key words


N.M. Karamzin, N.I. Novikov, correspondence, problems of religion, philosophy, morality
