The 4th “Berdyaev Readings” forum “Russia and Asia: Vectors of Civilizational Development” took place in August 2015 under the auspices of Noncommerical Foundation – Institute of Socio-economicand Political Researches (ISEPR Foundation) in Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok, Russky Island,Ayaks settlement). “Pacific Ocean is the future Mediterranean”, – envisaged Russian philosopher A.I. Herzenas back as 1853, i.e. 7 years before the founding of Vladivostok. Therefore, the choice of the forum’s locationwas predetermined: Vladivostok – this is the most Eastern Russian megalopolis, an outpost of the Russian interests in the Pacific, the gates of Russia in the booming Asia-Pacific region. It is in this city where the established club of experts, advocates of conservative thought, gathered again to analyze the whole range ofissues of intellectual interaction between Russia and the major Asian powers together with the leading Russian Orientalists, as well as with colleagues from China, Korea, Japan, India, Turkey, Singapore and Malaysia. Participants of the forum discussed various topics, including: the image of the East in Russian thought; the perception of Russia in Asian countries; the specificity of the Asian experience of modernization; commonality of values of Asian cultures. This paper highlights some of the main conclusions made at the forum.
