As revolution approached, Lvov - with a background as a liberal monarchist - came to believe that Russia would suffer military defeat at the hands of Germany and Austria-Hungary unless Tsar Nicholas II abdicated and a new government put in place.
With the February Revolution of 1917 (and the Tsar's consequent abdication) Lvov was appointed Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, chiefly as a means of ensuring liberal urban and rural support for the new political regime.
Although Lvov remained nominal Prime Minister with the May 1917 cabinet reshuffle Kerenski effectively ran the government in co-ordination with the Petrograd Soviet, a situation formalised on 8 July 1917 with Kerenski's promotion to Prime Minister.

 George Lvov
Lvov became increasingly involved in national politics and in January, 1917, expressed the opinion that Russia would be defeated by the Central Powers unless it overthrew the Tsar and his autocratic regime.
Lvov's unwillingness to withdraw Russia from the First World War made him unpopular with the people and on 8th July, 1917, he resigned and was replaced by Alexander Kerensky.
Guchkov's resignation precipitated matters, and Lvov, Kerensky and Tershchenko came to the conclusion that, as the Soviet was too powerful a factor to be either suppressed or disregarded, the only way of putting an end to the anomaly of a dual Government was to form a Coalition.

 The Lvov-Warsaw School   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This faith in logic by no means led to a lack of awareness of the complexity of philosophical problems, but was inspired by an attitude of caution and prudence.
The turning points in the period in which the School developed were the two World Wars, which coincided with the migration from Lvov to Warsaw of many of its representatives.
However, as Wolenski remarked, even in the work of a prevalently logical nature produced by the Warsaw School there was the unmistakable philosophical stamp of the general trend of the Lvov-Warsaw School and its master Twardowski.

 Lenin: Our Thanks to Prince G. Y. Lvov   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In a farewell talk to members of the Committee of Journalists under the Provisional Government, Prince G. Lvov, former head of the Provisional Government, made some valuable admissions for which the workers will certainly be grateful.
But when a serious and decisive moment came, Prince Lvov at once fully admitted this truth, openly declaring that a “victory” over the class enemy at home was more important than the position in the struggle against the foreign enemy.
The “breach in the front” of the internal war on this occasion came, firstly, from the fact that the bourgeoisie had poured oceans of filth and slander on their class enemies, the Bolsheviks, and had shown exceptional tenacity in this really infamous and vile business of slandering their political opponents.
