Berdyaev’s Philosophy of History: An Existentialist Theory by David Bonner Richardson

By David Bonner Richardson

BERDYAEV AS A thinker How shall a non-Russian, particularly a North American, assimilate the extreme assemblage of principles that's Berdyaev's philosophy? Dr. Richardson doesn't exaggerate the problems. And he introduces us with nice care (and what a powerful job it should have been) accurately to what's such a lot unusual during this author, his fusion of old .. eschatological-metaphysical-mystical-Christian conceptions. by means of a few criteria Berdyaev is a theologian instead of a thinker; for he's taking the reality of the Christian revelation without any consideration and his paintings can conveniently be seen as an complex apologetic for one faith opposed to all others and opposed to irreligion. but I incline to sympathize with him in his declare to be a thinker. What an eccentric one, despite the fact that! There are certainly a few partial analogies within the common ecu culture. definitely this Russian is a disciple of Kant, and powerful lines of Kantianism live to tell the tale in him. He additionally moved clear of Kant a little bit as did Fichte, Hegel, and, in particular, Schelling in his final interval. His sympathetic reaction to Heracleitos and Boehme remembers Hegel. The curiosity in Boehme and Schelling is located additionally in Tillich. just like the past due German-American, Berdyaev rejects conceptual in desire of symbolic speech approximately God. Like Bergson, he stresses instinct and makes an intensive contrast among clinical logical analytic idea and the mode of apprehension wherein, he believes, metaphysical fact is to be appropriated. right here one thinks additionally of Heidegger.
