The article discusses Krzizhanovsky’s peculiar handling of the quoted sources. His knowledge of doxographical testimonia concerning Plato is observed including the use of evidence going back to Diogenes Laërtius. Krzhizhanovsky’s direct use of Plato, his dialogues and theories is discussed. The treatment of Plato’s main theories in Krzizhanovsky’s prose and theoretical essays is studied
in detail. Krzhizhanovsky’s use of Plato’s collected works in 6 volumes translated and commented by Vladimir Karpov (1798–1867) is explored, particularly the use of Karpov’s comments to ‘Phaedrus’ and ‘Symposium’ in his essay ‘Love as Method of Knowledge’.

Keywords: Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky, Plato, Vladimir Karpov, Plato in Russia in 19th and 20th centuries
