Abstract
The article reviews the criticism of philosophical position of I. Kant by the Russian religious philosopher Pavel Florensky. The sharpness of such criticism is explained by the Russian philosopher's recognition in Kant not just of the assertion of power of reason as opposed to faith, but the assertion of the power of mind at the cost of faith. The religious thinker and priest in one person, he was most acutely able to feel the depth of transformation of the believing mind and its aberration that inevitably follows such a transformation.
