“Vladimir Wozniuk’s translation and edition of Vladimir Soloviev’s work is a major contribution in Russian thought and theology. What is particularly impressive about this collection is the thoughtfulness with which it is put together.” —Gary Saul Morson, Northwestern University

Vladimir S. Soloviev (1853–1900), moral philosopher, social and literary critic, theologian, and poet, is considered one of Russia’s greatest philosophers. But Soloviev is relatively unknown in the West, despite his close association with Fyodor Dostoevsky, who modeled one of his most famous literary characters, Alyosha Karamazov, on Soloviev. In The Heart of Reality, Vladimir Wozniuk offers a lucid translation, careful annotations, and a substantive introduction that make many of Soloviev’s writings accessible for the first time to an English-speaking audience.

Soloviev worked tirelessly in the name of the mystical body of the Universal Church. The vast bulk of his writings can be construed as promoting, in one way or another, the cause of ecumenism. His essays also display the influence of Platonic and German Idealism and strands of Thomistic thinking. Wozniuk demonstrates the consistency of Soloviev’s biblically-based thought on the subjects of aesthetics, love, and ethics, while at the same time clarifying Soloviev’s concept of vseedinstvo (the unity of spiritual and material), especially as applied to literature. Containing many previously untranslated essays, The Heart of Reality situates Soloviev more clearly in the mainstream of Western religious philosophy and Christian thought.

Book Description University of Notre Dame Press May 2003, 2003. Hardcover. Condition: New. Editor and translator Vladimir Wozniuk makes an interesting point that the apparent lack of any universally recognized ''great'' Russian philosopher might be due to the difficulty Russian grammar presents in the translation of philosophical texts. Since the Russian language has no definite or indefinite articles, the nuanced language of philosophy too often emerges as ''a tangled jungle of abstraction that subsequently appears to border on complete nonsense.'' Enter Vladimir S. Soloviev -- moral philosopher, social and literary critic, theologian, poet and mystic -- try to pigeonhole him in any one of these categories and you'll discover you've lost the man. As Wozniuk perceptively points out in the introduction, ''Evaluations that fail to recognize the centrality of incarnational Christianity in [Soloviev's] thought, of the manifold implications of the appearance of the fully God-man Christ for the transformation of the worldaend up missing the point of his endeavors entirely.'' Containing many previously unpublished essays, this collection turns upon Soloviev's shared belief (with Dostoevsky, and this from his second address on Dostoevsky) that convictions never separate truth from beauty and the good; that artistic creativity never places beauty apart from the good ''because these three live only in their unity.'' In fact, Soloviev's three addresses on Dostoevsky might be the crown of this carefully crafted compilation, but don't miss his essay on Pushkin or Wozniuk's fresh translation of The Meaning of Love. 244 pp. Seller Inventory # 93043
