Abstract. The article analyses the sociological views defended by A.S. Lappo-Danilevsky (1863–1919) and considers his activity directed to the institutialization of sociology in Russia and to the teaching of sociological disciplines: the organization of the M.M. Kovalevky Russian Sociological Society (1916), the project of establishing of the Social Sciences Institute (1918). On the basis of the archival sources, the article proposes Lappo-Danilevsky’s interpretation of a number of sociological doctrines: the origins of sociology, A. Compte’s project of positive social science, the criticism of J.S. Mill’s doctrine, organic movement in sociology, bio-social movement, materialistic movement, «critical construction». It is shown that Lappo-Danilevsky’s works are characterized by the historical method of explanation of sociological theories, which was determined with the didactical and pedagogical aims. The demonstration of the historical development of social ideas allowed Lappo-Danilevsky to avoid dogmatism and to foster the students’ independence of thinking. His scientific views were close to the Neo-Kantianism. Lappo-Danilevsky considered the elaboration of the epistemological and methodological issues of social science as relevant to the social theory of his times.

Keywords: A.S. Lappo-Danilevsky, sociology, science, teaching, institutialization, sociology society, theory of sociology, Neo-Kantianism.
