Abstract
The article is devoted to perception of the book of an Austrian writer Otto Weininger "Geschlecht und Charakter" (1903) by Russian symbolists. The Russian dialogue with Weininger evolves due to the fact that for the symbolists he was "their own" and "alien" at the same time. Finding Weininger's features of "Russian outlook" (apokalyptic maximalism, binary structure of thinking, ontological interpretation of psychology), Russian symbolist critics involve his text in a national space of philosophical religious discourse, transforming it by means of their language and making it, on the one hand, the object of polemics (Berdyaev), and on the other hand, an object of affirmative transformation (V. Ivanov).
