Abstract
The paper attempts to analyze the problem of the development of a philosophical language in Russia on the basis of one of the conceptual options for its solution proposed by two leaders of the "Society of Wisdom-Loving" (Obshchestvo lyubomudriya), Dmitry Venevitinov and Vladimir Odoevsky. Despite the existing romantic affirmation of the principle of "nationality" (narodnost') in philosophy, science and art, Venevitinov and Odoevsky assume that in theory, the development of the philosophical language should not be confined to the national language only. They are most interested in the universalist concepts of the philosophical language, which in the 1920s are represented by romantic natural philosophy and are connected to the concept of "mathesis". Venevitinov-Odoevsky's identification of the natural philosophical sources of solving the problem of the philosophical language transforms the current perception of the Russian philosophical romanticism of the 1820s as consistent Schellingianism, since, in this case, it is a matter of the conscious recycling of the Okenian version of natural philosophy.
