Abstract | Full Text

The axis of the publication is K. Leontiev's criticism of Dostoyevsky's rosy Christianity. The pivotal characteristics of Leontiev's world-view and his Christian vision are outlined. The specificity of Dostoyevsky's outlook expressed in his Pushkin Speech and in his last novel - the Brothers Karamazov is also revealed in this very item. Special emphasis is given to a wide range of critical estimates of the given dispute in the history of Russian culture and philosophy up to the present moment.
