As an analysis of higher education curricula shows, the course of the history of Russian philosophy usually ends with a consideration of the metaphysics of unity, developed in the writings of Vl. Solovyov, and its refractions in the philosophical systems of thinkers of the Silver Age. The author aims to show that the Silver Age was not the final chord, and to track the further development of Russian thought — that line that organically continued the philosophical searches and discoveries held in the pre-revolutionary period in Russia. Over the past few decades, when, due to the radical change in the Russian socio-political situation, wide access to foreign sources was opened, many translations and reprints of philosophical texts of the Russian emigration were carried out, which allowed us to reconstruct the ways of Russian thought of the twentieth century outside Russia. The emergence in Europe of the center of Russian religious philosophy and the works of thinkers such as G. Florovsky, V.N. Lossky, I. Meyendorf, and others led to the fact that Russian philosophy has reached a new level — identifying itself as a different philosophical tradition in relation to the West, built on the foundation of Eastern Christianity. According to the author of the article, this development of Russian thought should be reflected in textbooks on philosophy for higher education.
