Dostoevsky and Heidegger’s Unreified Self: A Break with Tradition

in The Dostoevsky Journal

The paper explores the substantial correlation of thought between Dostoevsky and Heidegger that exceeds Dostoevsky’s thematic concerns and stems from the heart of his poetics. Dostoevsky’s innovative presentation of the unfinalisability of consciousness constituted for Heidegger a powerful example of remaining within ‘life-experience’ and their denial of Kant’s a priori arguments marks them out as breaking from the philosophical traditions that preceded them.
