Addressing this event today is an opportunity to return to historical sources, to comprehend the place of Russian social and philosophical thought in the world socio-humanitarian tradition, to trace successive lines and perspectives.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the “Philosophical Steamboats”, the St. Petersburg Institute of History of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian State Archive of Socio-Political History are holding the All-Russian Interdisciplinary Scientific Conference “Philosophical Steamboat – One Hundred Years in the Ocean of History: New Facts, Images, Reflection”.

The conference will be held on November 17-18, 2022 at St. Petersburg Institute of History of the Russian Academy of Sciences in full-time and remote format.

Following the results of the conference, it is planned to publish a collection of reports.
