• Dostoevsky and Kant : dialogues on ethics

    Cherkasova, Evgenia 2009 Value inquiry book series, 0929-8436 ( Serie ) Amsterdam ; New York : Rodopi 9789042026117 | BRILL9789042026117 Abstract

    "In this book, Evgenia Cherkasova brings the philosopher Kant and the novelist Dostoevsky together in conversations that probe why duty is central to our moral life. She shows that just as Dostoevsky is indebted to Kant, so Kant would profit from the deeply philosophical narratives of Dostoevsky, which engage the problem of evil and the claims of human community. She not only produces a novel reading of Dostoevsky, but also guides us to later, often neglected Kantian texts. This study is written with scholarly care, penetrating analysis, elegance of style, and moral urgency: Cherkasova writes with both mind and heart."
