Abstract

The article is dedicated to the insufficiently studied influence of Nikolay Fyodorov’s ideas represented in the «Philosophy of the Common Cause» on literary and publicistic works of poet and thinker Vyacheslav Ivanov. This problem is interesting for understanding the history of development of Christian ideas in the 20th century. The article considers such ideas of Fyodorov’s religious philosophy as the common case, memory and the cult of ancestors, culture, eschathology, resurrection of the fathers, liturgy, creative work. The reception of Fyodorov’s views and their reflection on Ivanov’s «Ancient Terror», «Correspondence between Two Corners», «Universal Deed» are analyzed in the article. Fyodorov and Ivanov consider Christian experience as a source for overcoming the crisis of the culture. Both thinkers claim fundamental meaning of the experience for revitalization of the modern culture, which they consider to be suffering from decline of creative and constructive ideas. Philosophical-culturological and religious reflexion of Ivanov shows ambiguity of his attitude to the Fyodorov’s study as a phenomenon of the Christian universalism.
