Excerpt from Nicolas Berdyaev and the New Middle Ages

Nicolas Berdyaev is the first Russian philosopher (with the exception perhaps of the Russian novelists, whose work abounds in philosophical ideas) to have made himself heard not only in his native Russia, but in the West as well. His works have been translated into many languages, and have met everywhere with an appreciative and often enthusiastic reception. It would be no exaggeration to place his name beside those of the most outstanding modern thinkers, Henri Bergson, Max Scheler, Nicolas Hartmann, Heidegger, and others. It may be said that in the person of Berdyaev Russian philosophy first faced the judgment of Europe, and indeed of the whole world.

To anyone who has read Berdyaev's books the difficulties of writing about him or of systematizing the conflicting ideas of his rich and diverse thought are obvious. While writing the present short essay I constantly came across this difficulty. The only circumstance which seemed to lighten my task was a certain affinity with his thought, and above all with his problems.

I am no upholder of the well-known principle of enquiry sine ira ant studio, "detachedness", for the simple fact that it cannot be attained, at least in living human thought. It is scarcely possible to know and understand the mind of an author unless one is capable of entering into it sympathetically, and in some sense of identifying oneself with it; those who aim at "scientific objectivity" and an impersonal neutrality are threatened with intellectual barrenness. Hence this book, being an attempt at expounding Berdyaev's thought, bears with it some of my own convictions: otherwise I would never have ventured to write it.
