Literary work of Leonid Andreyev in the context of Arthur Schopenhauer’s and Friedrich Nietzsche’s Philosophy
Languages of publication
Proposed paper explores the message of German voluntarist philosophy in the works of Russian modernist writer Leonid Nikolaievich Andreyev. Its subject matter deals with the philosophical system of two leading figures associated with the concept of ‘will’ – Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche – as well as the influence of their teaching on Andreyev’s literary writings. The author of the paper analyses the phenomenon of ‘will’ from the perspective of the aforementioned philosophers, examines its significance in terms of human existence and determines its dominant position in relation to reason. The author subsequently confronts the acquired information with selected prosaic and dramatic texts of the Russian writer and identifies parallels between them. The paper concludes with evidence justifying the interrelation between Andreyev’s work and the German system of thought.
