Abstract: This essay by Dmitry Arzyutov and Nikolai Vakhtin introduces a collection of papers dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Vladimir Bogoras. It presents the short biography and bibliography of Bogoras. It discusses his (and his colleague Lev Shternberg’s) contribution to the formation of Arctic (Siberian) anthropology in St Petersburg, and the ambivalent character of Bogoras’ personality, a “two-faced Janus” as he called himself.
Keywords: Vladimir Bogoras, St Petersburg school of ethnography, Arctic anthropology.
