Absract: The study, for the first time, turns to the journalistic articles of D.V. Philosophov (1917 ‒ 1918), which hadThe study, for the first time, turns to the journalistic articles of D.V. Philosophov (1917 ‒ 1918), which hadnot been reprinted or included in his lifetime author's collections. These articles address a number of topicalproblems linked with the cultural and educational policies on the eve and in the wake of the February andOctober Revolutions. The main attention is paid to the monuments of art (including the tsarist heritage)and to the situation around the humanities education. A particular concern is with the critique of the newlydrawnsyllabus in the history of Russian literature for secondary schools, which followed upon the instructors'congress in Moscow, closed on January 4 (17), 1917, in which not only school teachers, but also professors andmembers of the Academy took part (including P. N. Sakulin, N.A. Kotlyarevsky). In addition, the concern iswith the issue of moral responsibility of the history teachers before their pupils, after the Bolsheviks had cometo power. As a result, as the article shows, Philosophov not only has formulated his position on the privateissues of cultural policy and school education, but also has set forth his own vision of how spiritual valuesare being consolidated – values that hold the Nation together through our common history and literature.Simultaneously, the publicist entered the large-scale polemics of those years, about patriotism and the role ofintelligentsia in the Age of Crisis.
