Summary/Abstract: Ludwik Krzywicki’s sociological thought developed when the territory of Poland was divided by surrounding powers and a considerable part of which was under Russian dominance. There were several examples of Russian influence on Polish Sociology in the second half of the 19th century and in the beginning of the 20th century: Polish translations of Russian sociological works, citations of Russian sociologists in Polish works, the reception of Russian editions of Western sociological works in Poland, Poles studying at Russian universities and personal contact with Russian sociologists. Russian Sociology influenced Krzywicki’s thought from its very beginning. He studied at a Russian secondary school and then at the Imperatorial University of Warsaw. Krzywicki was familiar with Russian sociological and socialist works. When he was dismissed from the university and emigrated, he cooperated with Russian sociologists such as Peter Lavrov. In his works, Krzywicki referred to numerous Russian sociologists, philosophers, anthropologists and ethnologists. He also cooperated with several periodicals in Paris and Warsaw, where Russian Sociology was present in many articles, written not only by Krzywicki, but also by other authors.
