In this issue, the journal publishes excerpts from “The Conservative Mind” (1953), the most famed work by R.Kirk, a noted American conservative thinker, researcher of culture , political scientist and historian. In this work of his, a book that ran into seven editions and had been invariably supplemented with new material, the author tries to make out, what is conservatism in a broad cultural-scientific sense, to retrace its roots and history “from Burke to Eliot”. As he sees it, conservatism is not an ideology, it is, on the contrary, opposed to ideologies with their dogmatism and abstractiveness. The excerpts published here are from the chapter about E.Burke, whom Kirk considered a true exponent of conservatism. Edition used for translation into Russian: Kirk R. The Conservative Mind. From Burke to Eliot. Seventh Revised Edition. Chicago, Washington, 1986, p. 24-47.
