On the finish of the 19th and the start of the 20th century, a wide and sundry staff of the Russian intelligentsia grew to become interested by Friedrich Nietzsche, whose provocative rules encouraged lots of them to beat out of date traditions and to create new values. sarcastically, the German thinker, who vigorously challenged the confirmed Christian worldview, invigorated the wealthy ferment of spiritual philosophy within the Russian Silver Age: his rules served as a fruitful resource of thought for the philosophers of the Russian non secular renaissance, the so-called God-seekers, of their quest for a brand new spiritual attention. specifically Nietzsche’s anthropology of the Übermensch used to be instrumental of their reformulation of Christianity. This ebook explores how 3 pivotal figures within the Russian non secular reception of Nietzsche, i.e. Vladimir Solov’ëv, Dmitrii Merezhkovskii and Nikolai Berdiaev, engaged in a vacillating but hugely prolific debate with Nietzsche and the way each one of them appropriated his anthropology of the Übermensch of their non secular philosophy. in an effort to clarify Merezhkovskii’s and Berdiaev’s overview of Nietzsche, the writer highlights the importance of Dostoevskii: merely through interpreting Nietzsche throughout the prism of Dostoevskii may either God-seekers pin down the non secular ramifications of Nietzsche’s suggestion. This booklet should be of curiosity to someone eager about Nietzsche, Dostoevskii, Russian non secular philosophy, Russian background of principles and reception experiences.
