LEON CHESTOV PDF

Among his contemporaries he entertained long-standing philosophical friendships with Martin Buber , Edmund Husserl and Nikolai Berdyaev. He thus engaged on what he termed a "pilgrimage through the souls" of such greats as Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Blaise Pascal, Descartes, Plotinus, Spinoza, Plato, Luther and others. Conversations with Lev Shestov by Benjamin Fondane - As the years go by it becomes harder and harder for me to keep believing that the wall can be broken down, that one can defeat impossibility. I did not grow used to this struggle, it does not pacify me, on the contrary every day it becomes harder, more laborious, painful to carry on.

Among his contemporaries he entertained long-standing philosophical friendships with Martin Buber , Edmund Husserl and Nikolai Berdyaev.

Conversations with Lev Shestov by Benjamin Fondane - As the years go by it becomes harder and harder for me to keep believing that the wall can be broken down, that one can defeat impossibility.

I did not grow used to this struggle, it does not pacify me, on the contrary every day it becomes harder, more laborious, painful to carry on.

But as long as I have the least shred of hope I will refuse to "sanctify" necessity as Schelling does But he always goes back to the same questions: "Did Kierkegaard regain Regina Olsen?

Did Job recover his dead children? Has there ever been a single Christian who actually moved mountains? You know as well as I do that none of these came to be. But when did the Angel of Death visit him? The most natural thing would be to suppose that it happened at the foot of the scaffold when sentence of death was read out to him and his companions. However, it is probable that "natural" explanations are out of place here.

We have got into the realm of the unnatural, of the eternally and essentially fantastic, and if we want to see anything, we must abandon all those methods and procedures which previously gave a certainty, a guarantee to our truths and our knowledge. It is possible that a yet more important sacrifice may be demanded of us.

We may perhaps have to admit that certainty is not a predicate of truth, or, to express it better, that certainty has absolutely nothing in common with truth.

The friends, as true thinkers, look not at Job but at the "general. Perhaps they are convinced that in general God does not know any concerns but that He only rules. That is why they answer, "You who tear yourself in your anger, shall the earth be forsaken for you or the rock be removed from its place?

And, indeed, shall rocks really be removed from their place for the sake of Job? And shall necessity renounce its sacred rights? This would truly be the summit of human audacity, this would truly be a "mutiny," a "revolt" of the single human personality against the eternal laws of the all-unity of being! It is rather long but gives a good idea of what to expect.

Lev Shestov

He obtained an education at various places, due to fractious clashes with authority. He went on to study law and mathematics at the Moscow State University but after a clash with the Inspector of Students he was told to return to Kiev, where he completed his studies. Shestov contributed articles to a journal the circle had established. Although on the surface it is an exploration of numerous intellectual topics, at its base it is a sardonic work of Existentialist philosophy which both criticizes and satirizes our fundamental attitudes towards life situations.
