Dostoevsky and Social and Metaphysical Freedom
2003 0-7734-6643-6
In structuring her argument about the dynamic by which the notions of fate and freedom operate throughout Doetoevsky's canon, Dr. Buzina brings together four different, though interrelated traditions, the romantic tradition from Schelling to Berlin, Old Norse mythology, the Russian Folk tradition as reflected both in folk tales and in old hymns and dirges, and the Bible.
