Faith, God, and Nonviolence in the Teachings of Lev Tolstoy

Russian Studies in Philosophy 38 (2):89-103 (1999)
L.N. Tolstoy produced an original religious-moral doctrine that became known as Tolstoyism. It was left on the periphery of the spiritual processes in the twentieth century and, undeservedly, was forgotten. This becomes particularly obvious in the context of contemporary discussions about the dialogue of cultures and the interrelation between universalism and particularism. Tolstoy sought only the transcultural foundations of human existence. The basic questions that he examines as a thinker and wrestles with as a human being is the following: what can religion and morality mean to contemporary men for whom reason is the basis of knowledge and individual responsibility is the basis of behavior?
