Description
Vladimir Soloviev (1853-1900), social and literary critic, theologian and poet, is considered one of Russia’s greatest philosophers. This volume makes many of his writings accessible for the first time to an English-speaking audience. The bulk of them can be construed as promoting, in one way or another, the cause of ecumenism, and also display the influence of Platonic and German Idealism and biblically-based thought on the subjects of aesthetics, love and ethics. A friend and confidant of Dostoyevsky, Soloviev can be seen as one of the philosophical sources of Tolstoy’s The Kreutzer Sonata.
