Ян Паточка о философии Достоевского
Along with M. Heidegger and E. Husserl, F.M. Dostoevsky can be called one of those thinkers who greatly influenced the philosophy of Jan Patocka, a Czech phenomenologist and public figure of the 20th century, and this influence is especially noticeable in Patocka’s later works. The references to the work of Dostoevsky are scattered throughout many works by Patocka: they allow to shed light on both the Patocka’s philosophy and the ideas of Dostoevsky himself. The main purpose of this article is to analyze the interpretation of Dostoevsky’s philosophy by Patocka and a brief demonstration (by virtue of the format of the article) of the relationship between Patocka’s philosophy and Dostoevsky’s ideas.
