Russian Philosophy Forum
A Service of The Transnational Vladimir
Welcome to Russian Philosophy Forum! We are an informal group
of persons interested in Russian philosophy. Russians, Americans and West Europeans, our
group includes both students and scholars. Our purpose is to expand transnational
communication, education, research and publication in this field. You are invited to join
us. We will provide access to a variety of ways of learning about and discussing Russian
philosophy, past and present.
The Forum is being organized by several Russian, American and
West European members of The Transnational Vladimir Solovyov Society,
whose names and e-mail or fax addresses are listed below.
As this Forum develops, we will take advantage of the fact
that we have Society founders and key representatives in Russia and Ukraine as well as
England, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the United States. Additional country
representatives are expected to join these soon. At present we can correspond by e-mail or
fax in English, French, German or Russian, though English will provide much faster replies
and general communication.
The organization sponsoring both Russian Philosophy Forum and
The Transnational Vladimir Solovyov Society is The Transnational
Institute. The other Internet activity of the Transnational Institute is the new
information service Russia on the Web.
As of 1999 the Society has established an e-mail list for
those interested in Solovyov and his legacy. In fact, as of 2000, Society membership is
achieved simply by joining this list. To subscribe to it send a blank e-mail (no subject
or message) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
To unsubscribe send blank e-mail to: email@example.com
