Ivan Sergeyevich Aksakov (Russian: Ива́н Серге́евич Акса́ков; October 8 [O.S. September 26] 1823, Nadezhdino, Orenburg Governorate – February 8 [O.S. January 27] 1886, Moscow) was a Russian littérateur and notable Slavophile.
He was the son of Sergey Aksakov and younger brother of the writers Konstatin and Vera Aksakova. He was born in what is now Bashkortostan. Aksakov graduated from the Imperial School of Jurisprudence in 1842.
Ivan took part in the Crimean War, and promoted the ideas of Pan-Slavism in the Russian press during the Russo-Turkish War, 1877-1878. D.S. Mirsky considered him the finest Russian journalist, after Alexander Herzen. Aksakov also wrote the first biography of his father-in-law, the Slavophile poet Fyodor Tyutchev.
