Abridged translation of Morality and Politics (Vladimir Solovyov, 1891). Vladimir Solovyov (not to be confused with the contemporary commentator) is one of the premier Russian philosophers that was also a public intellectual in his day. While not well known or much read in the West, he is still regarded in Russia and stands high on Vladimir Putin's reading list. Solovyov held that is was Russia's destiny to act as a bridge between Oriental despotism and Western liberalism that he regarded a a form of anarchy. Although Paul Robinson doesn't mention it, this short piece can be read in terms of a chief issue in ancient Greek philosophy as a pillar of Western civilization: What does it mean to live a good life in a good society.
