The more one learns when researching a historic personality, the more sophisticated and nondogmatic that personality tends to emerge. Superficial knowledge, using good old [Soviet] “ideologically correct” reference sources presents a black and white mediocre image graded proceeding from...

An interesting thing is occurring to Hetman Pavlo Skoropadsky’s political, state-formative, military, and literary (his Reminiscences) legacy: the more what he did becomes part of the “living” awareness of contemporary Ukrainians, rather than of “archival” history, the...

The destiny of a thinker, like that of an artist, often turns out to be unexpected or even chimerical. Forgotten, distorted, rejected, and cursed by contemporaries still in his lifetime, this person “suddenly” (in reality, not so suddenly) stages a comeback dozens of years later. His...
