Tells Origins of Russian Intelligentsia

"The Russian inteligentsia orig-
inated in the fusing of the young
gentry, who broke away from the
official class," Prof. Martin Malia
of the University of California at
Berkeley, said yesterday.
The intelligentsia were much
more than just intellectuals, he'
said. "They made an enormous
impact on the whole of modern'
history, and eventually won in the
Revolution of 1917.
"They were not just 'conscious-
striken noblemen'," he said. "They


democratic element in a profound-
ly undemocratic society-in under-
standing what this class was."
The universities, seminaries and
high schools, modernizing under
Alexander the First, provided the
meeting place for the young gentry
and the "raznochintsy," or "people
of diverse estates."
Groups Unite
These two groups were fused by
the 1840's, he said, and the gentry
dominated the group until the
1860's when the lower class mem-
bers of the intelligentsia gained
more influence. "This gave the
intelligentsia a more radical and
embittered tone," he said.
"They had a feeling of apart-
ness and superoirity because they
believed that they embodied the
rationality, humanity and con-
sciousness of Russia," he said.
In the 1860's when the govern-
ment tried to reform archaic and
barbaric structures by emanci-
pating the peasants, it whetted the

appetitte of the intelligentsia; he
said. "They demanded the com-
plete realization of the universal,
rational idea of man," he said.
"They demanded social democ-
racy immediately, and when they
didn't get it they went to the
people to stir them up by their
conspiratorial activity."
In Vacuum
Because of the extremely simple
Russian social structure composed
of peasants and gentry which ex-
isted in until the 1890's, the alien-
ated intelligentsia existed in a
vacuum, unlike the intelligentsia
of the West, he said, where in-
terest groups lent substance to
generalized protests.
"After 100 years they made con-
tact with the explosive, anarchic
base which was 90 per cent of the
population," he said, "and from
1890 to 1915 their cohesion was
sufficient so they could hold to-
gether long enough to profit from
collapse when it came In 1917."

... views intelligentsia
came from every class, and were
a cohesive group only in terms
of ideology."
"It has to be recognized," he
said, "that the intelligentsia was
a class, and that its sole principle
of cohesion was commitment to
ideas as opposed to immediate it --
Adopt Idealism
The Russian intelligentsia as-
sumed distinct characteristics in
the 1830's and 1840's, he said,
when the young intellectuals of
the gentry adopted the German
philosophic idealism of Kant.
This philosophy assigns an im-
portant place to intellect and in-
tellectuals, who "dominate the
world by thought," because one
of its principles is that "the whole
structure of the universe comes to
a culmination in man's mind."
"The adoption of an egotistic
philosophical principle marks
them as a group hostile and feel-
ing itself superior to the rest of
society," he said.
'Moral Scandal'
"After 1762, for the first time
in Russia there was a class of free
men," he said, explaining that
after that date men were no longer
bound legally to serve the mon-
archy. "The younger and better
educated found submission to au-
tocracy a moral scandal."
"They generalized, then, from
their own sense of individual dig-
nity of all men."
"They tried out these moral
principles in the Decembrist revolt
in 1825," he said. "Its failure pre-
cipitated the full development of
this class of alienated intellectu-
