Philologica russica et speculativa is an academic series launched and run jointly by the journal Philologica and the publishing house, Iazyki slavianskix kul’tur.
In the framework of this series, we hope to publish fundamental works of scholarly research, as well as collections of papers on theoretical philology, the theory and history of verse, linguistic poetics, the history of Russian literature, and comparative literature. Some of the volumes planned will be devoted to materials from literary and scholarly archives: publications of Russian classics of the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries with commentaries, as well as milestones of humanitarian thought in our era which remain unpublished or have been undeservedly forgotten.
It is our intention to create a library of modern philology for scholars who value empirical accuracy, methodological clarity, and cultural and historical authenticity principles rarely observed today. Only by taking these intellectual responsibilities on board will the humanitarian disciplines gain the right to claim the title of a science.
