Michaił Sperański i Nikołaj Karamzin - dwie wizje rozwoju państwowości rosyjskiej za rządów Aleksandra I

Jakub Potulski


The development of political systems is a cumulative process. One of the ways to analyze political systems is a historical analysis of the development of institutional work patterns. In the historical development of Russian political institutions certain stable and repeated (established) elements appear which constitute characteristic features of the Russian political system. When analyzing the evolution of the Russian political system, one can see that one of the key periods of reign for the evolution of the Russian political system was the reign of Alexander I. At the time of the French revolution and Napoleonic wars, there was a debate concerning the state reform and further modernization of the country. The symbols of the debate were Nikolay Speransky, who was considered an educated reformer and civil servant, and Nikolay Karamzin, a journalist and historian considered a representative of traditional and cons ervative approach. They represented the existing divisions within the Russian political elites. A negative assessment of the revolution events in France contributed to the victory of the conservative part of the elites. The outcome of the dispute between Speransky’s enlightened and liberal vision and Karamzin’s traditional and conservative vision was crucial for the further evolution of the Russian political system.
