Summary/Abstract: The paper discusses the perception of the philosophy of the founder of the Marburg School of Neo-Kantianism Hermann Cohen by representatives of various directions of Russian philosophy in the early 20th century. It shows the evaluation of Kant’s transcendental system by Russian philosophers. The author distinguishes three main approaches to the evaluation of Cohen’s philosophy. Representatives of Russian religious philosophy criticize mainly the ethical constructs of the Marburger Neo-Kantian. By contrast, Russian followers of Neo-Kantianism underline the importance of his efforts to provide a system of philosophy. Finally, representatives of the Russian-Jewish group focus on the philosophy of religion of the German thinker. However, the author observes that no complete and comprehensive analysis of Hermann Cohen’s system of critical idealism was undertaken in the Russian philosophy of the early 20th century.
