MuseumLibrary of History of Russian Philosophy and Culture A.F. Losev House
About the museum
It is the only public specialised philosophical library in Russia, not big, but thoroughly selected and very modern.
The stock is based on over 10 thousand books from the famous collection of Alexei Fedorovich Losev. This truly unique collection was handed over to the Library by emeritus professor of the Moscow State University Aza Alibekovna Takho-Godi, pupil and heiress of the philosopher.
The reading halls (public and academic ones) and mediateque provide the users with both books and media resources. The internet gives access to scientific periodicals, catalogues of the largest libraries, full-text databases of legal instruments and thesis works. The Library has a conference room and exposition dedicated to Alexei Fedorovich Losev.
Our Library is a scientific, memorial and educating Intellect Centre working under the programme of Culture of the Historic Centre of Russia.
