Satire has a special place among genres of literature. Russian satire is not only a reflexion of reality, but also a synthesis of cultures and a result of their interaction. The works of Sasha Tschorny are among them. In his feuilletons he reflects the life of his motherland and compares the organisation of society, culture and philosophy of culture of Russian and German worlds and their life positions. Works such as German forest, The Philosophers, Everyone wears the same cut, which were composed in Russia as well as during Tschorny's studies at the German university of Heidelberg, can be considered as a reflection of the ideas of classical German philosophy and its directions, which is expressed by contrasting two cultures. This article analyses semantics of Sasha Tschorny's feuilleton language, which both in a symbolic and direct way constructs the concept of classical German philosophy of culture.
