The present paper is devoted to clarifying the nature and mechanisms of inheritance in the history of Russian philosophy, which is one of the signs of its national identity. Unlike European philosophy focused on cognition of an object, as it appears before a scholarly researcher, Russian thought, born in the events of Russian history of the first quarter of the 19th century, was initially defined as a reflection on Russia's societal and cultural problems and their solution. The dramatic relations between statehood and philosophy, and the intention of "activation" of philosophical truth, determined the special nature of inheritance in the history of Russian thought – not through the branch of ideas that is characteristic of "abstract" European philosophy, but through sociocultural continuity. The concept of "social order" is considered, through which a meaningful connection is established between the events of social life and Russian philosophy. Two forms of understanding the intentions of Russian philosophy for life are singled out in the paper. The first of them, "the inversion of truth," characterizes its state in the period of 1830s and 1860s. The second one – "the world as creativity" is inherent in the subsequent time, up to events of 1917– 1922. It is asserted that idea of the world as a creativity removed the Russian thought out of limits of classical philosophy.
