Abstract
Identity is one of the concepts that became widely used across different disciplines during the last decades. The work explores the issue of Russian identity, the paths for its development, looking at the text as a main source of the identity-related knowledge. As both the attempts of identity-shaping and the references to the sources of identity formation may be “captured” in contemporary discourse, the apparatus of discourse analysis employed allows approaching the issue. The scope of the work includes the philosophical, legal, and idea-related dimensions. As a result, the work looks on the specificity of the Russian philosophical thought being employed in current political discourse, the issues of value pluralism and female identities, the identity-related aspects of the constitutional change – reflecting on the existing paths for identity formation and the attempts made to shape the identity from the “above.”<br><br><br><br><br>
