A brief analysis of several monographs of the scientist, who was one of the first to touch upon the complex problem of national identity, which did not receive sufficient coverage in the Soviet period, when for ideological reasons they downplayed the importance of the national, giving priority to the international, forgetting that these concepts are dialectically interconnected, is carried out.
