Bugrov, K. D., Kiselev, M. A. (2016). Natural Law and Virtue. The Integration of European Influence into 18th Century Russian Political Culture. Ekaterinburg, Ural University Press, University Press. 480 p.

The monograph is a result of the research project "Return to Europe: Russian Elites and European Innovations, Norms and Models (18th – early 20th century)". The work demonstrates the process of intellectual transfer in 18th century Russia in different aspects: authors analyze the massive of published translations of Western moral and political literature, trace the implementation of Western educational practices, and demonstrate the results of adaptation of new intellectual resources on Russian soil as a conceptual lexicon. Two such glossaries are examined in the book thoroughly: those of natural law and of virtue. The appendix includes the publications of Russian translations of European political texts as well as hand-written prefaces to these translations.
