Abstract: The book is devoted to the study of Russian literature of the second half of the 17th – the first half of the 18th centuries. Based on the analysis of the little-studied artistic and philosophical ideas of writers about the world, nature, man, the idea is put forward that the literature of “transitional time” constituted a peculiar period in the general process of development of Russian literature.
