Dostoevsky and Philosophising

In: The Dostoevsky Journal

One of the traits that renders Dostoevsky’s characters unwieldy for monological interpretations is their philosophising. They speak too much and in too abstract a manner to be serviceable components for the steady unfolding of a dramatic plot. They are also too caught up in the very process of philosophising to efface themselves as impersonal vehicles for the transmission of a polished set of authorial reflections. The nature of Dostoevsky’s fiction is pursued in its relation to philosophy.
