The article considers the state of the Russian Political Science and its ability to comprehend the domestic reality. Departing from the analysis of the Russian political thought, Yu.Pivovarov shows that Political Science in Russia stems from a different root. Its main source is Western Political Science that emerged as a tool of the rational self-cognition of the Western society that is not suitable for describing and studying other types of sociality. Since the “substance” of Political Science is almost absent in Russia, the Russian Political Science is busy with someone else’s “agenda” being absolutely insensitive towards real, truly Russian issues. Pivovarov concludes that the majority of the contemporary Russian political scientists are both the product and the element of the new Russian reality and therefore, they are able to only express and describe it for their own consumption.

Moreover, the works by a number of the most perspicacious thinkers contained some forecast creation energy, speaking metaphorically. Further understanding of the ways of the development of the Russian state is impossible without the achievements of the Russian national thought of the pre-revolutionary period.
