Fyodor Dostoevsky is sometimes called the "Seer of the Spirit" because of his masterful ability to depict human psychology in the troubled political and social atmosphere of 19th-century Russia. His works introduce troubled characters, intense narratives, and brutal crimes that give way to spiritual transfiguration. Dostoevsky invites us to reconsider the nature of good and evil, the human condition, and modern life. In this class we will trace the development of his ideas across the arc of his career. Texts will include The Double, Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, and Brothers Karamazov.
