Samenvatting

In Dostoevsky's Dialectics and the Problem of Sin, Ksana Blank borrows from ancient Greek, Chinese, and Christian dialectical traditions to formulate a dynamic image of Dostoevsky's dialectics-distinct from Hegelian dialectics-as a philosophy of compatible contradictions. Expanding on the classical triad of Goodness, Beauty, and Truth, Blank guides us through Dostoevsky's most difficult paradoxes: goodness that begets evil, beautiful personalities that bring about grief, and criminality that brings about salvation. Dostoevsky's philosophy of contradictions, this book demonstrates, contributes to the development of antinomian thought in the writings of early twentieth-century Russian religious thinkers and to the development of Bakhtin's dialogism. Dostoevsky's Dialectics and the Problem of Sin marks an important and original intervention into the enduring debate over Dostoevsky's spiritual philosophy.

Recensie(s)

[Blank's] great contribution lies in her ability to render the complex comprehensible and to enable the reader to engage with what she has so clearly presented as the essence, the kernel, of Dostoevskii. Hers is a study that should prove most rewarding and valuable, not only for the specialist in Dostoevskii and Russian literature, but for the general reader as well. - Slavic Review Ksana Blank's interesting and suggestive study seeks to reconcile the different approaches to the religious interpretations that have developed since the earliest days of Dostoevsky studies, by conceptualizing and exploring the author's antinomic thinking. - Russian Review
