This essay outlines the development of constitutional ideas in Russia, representing
Russian constitutionalism from the perspective of ideas-movements accompanying
Philosophy of Law and Constitutional Ideas in the 19th and Early 20th Centuries,
the organization of Russian society in the state, including the opposition to it, rather
than in a historical vein. In this respect, modern constitutionalism in Russia can be
seen as mixing pre-revolutionary traditions of liberalism (mostly liberal conservatism),
the Soviet legal consciousness and pragmatic attitudes of political struggle in
the transitional period.
