    1. دستويفسكي أعظم ميتافيزيقي أنجبته روسيا على لسان نيقولا، و أعظم مفكر روسي بالتأكيد. واضح جدًا تأثر نيقولا و إعجابه الشديد فيه بحيث أفرد كتاب كامل يتناول دستويفسكي، كان معني و منغمس في الإله الحرية والشر ومصير الانسان، تطرق الكتاب لكل ما تطرقت له أعماله و أشار بيد خفية إلى مقا [...]

    2. Ha i suoi difetti, eh. Si ripete, qualche argomentazione fila così e così, il simbolismo è citato un po' a sproposito. Però sulle cose importanti centra il punto: sul ruolo della libertà, del male, di Dio si esprime in questo saggio più che una semplice opinione convincente. Si sente tutta la necessità di affrontare i temi ultimi, quelli decisivi:Le idee di Dostoevskij sono un vero pane quotidiano dello spirito. Non si potrebbe vivere senza di loro. Non si può vivere senza aver risolto i [...]

    3. A really insightful book on Dostoevsky's philosophy, this book was a good reminder to me of just how great and emotionally and psychologically laden Dostoevsky's works were.Dostoevsky's novels are easily among my very favorites, though it has by now been a decade or more since I read them.Author Nicholas Berdyaev helped me gain better understanding of one seeming part of Dostoevsky's worldview that over the years I've had trouble accepting: the redemptive value of suffering. As a journalist who [...]

    4. "Dostoyevsky takes us into very dark places but he does not let darkness have the last word; his books do not leave us with an impression of sombre and despairing pessimism, because with darkness there goes a great light."These words perhaps summarize why I have always resonated deeply with the works of Dostoyevsky. I read this book very slowly as I am no Dostoyevsky scholar (nor philosopher), rather I read this book as one partakes in a multi-course meal rather than eating "on the run"; it took [...]

    5. Whatever interest some of Berdyaev's ideas may have, such as his perspectives on creativity, this book is largely intolerable.He is appallingly aristocratic, disavowing in Nietzsche (loudly, repeatedly) what he tacitly accepts; he plays fast and loose with the term "culture" in a way that I normally expect from right-wing American radio; he hates in Dostoevsky, not his nationalism, not his imperialism, not his will-to-dominance over the East, but his "populism" (!); other than pointing out, righ [...]

    6. This is Berdyaev's personal interpretation of the spiritual and philosophical thought of Dostoevsky. He pursues what he considers the "enigma" of Dostoevsky's thought. It is in his "pathos"--an "unprecedented regard for man and his destiny" that Berdyaev places the focus of the work. By considering this aspect as central to Dostoevsky's creativity he provides a rich and thoughtful account of Dostoevsky's literary corpus. Seeing the central relationships of his characters in this light Berdyaev a [...]

    9. This is an interesting little summation of the key themes in Dostoevsky's thought and works. And while Berdyaev digs into the heart of Dostoevsky's faith, he comes to taint it through his own christian beliefs. For Dostoevsky's faith is one tempered by much doubt and suffering - it is never a certainty. Its lightness or levity is of the greatest weight, tainted by an all pervading darkness. None of this is to speak ill of Dostoevsky - for his faith was one that was in touch with the darkness of [...]

    10. لم أكمله، إلا أنه بعيد عن المتعة وعن ما يتصوره القارئ قبل أن يبدأ

    11. I bought this book nearly 50 years ago, and started reading it several times, but never got further than the first couple of chapters, perhaps because I thought I should be more familiar with Dostoevsky's own works before reading this one, but perhaps it should be read concurrently. I've made a few other attempts since then, but not until now have I managed to read it all the way through. It's a mixture of literary criticism, theology and philosophy, and Berdyaev makes a point of comparing Dosto [...]

    12. It would probably serve as a nice introduction to Dostoevsky, but serves best when one is familiar with his works. Berdyaev is definitely biased in support of Dostoevsky (and antagonistic against Tolstoy), but he critiques as well as praises where these are due in Dostoevsky' s thinking and writing. Berdyaev speaks truly of the Russian divide though, those with the Christian-Russian spirit within them are either drawn towards Tolstoy or Dostoevsky and neither can understand the other. I've alway [...]

    13. All of my discontents and disagreements were turned into sheer anger when I saw Berdyaev claiming the crime of Raskolnikov was a "pure experiment". IT'S NOT. THIS IS FALSIFYING DOSTOYEVSKY AND THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.Will elaborate more on this later this month.
