Leo Tolstois Darlegung des Evangelium und seine theologisch-philosophische Ethik

Perspektiven der Philosophie 30:311-333 (2004)

The paper discusses Leo Tolstoy's philosophy as developed in his works 'A Synoptic Presentation of the Four Gospels' and 'The Gospel in Brief'. Tolstoy considered Christian religion not as a belief but as an ethical doctrine about how to live, so that our life does not lose its meaning when confronted with the death. Jesus' doctrine teaches that we must lead our life following our spirit, not our flesh. This means that we must strive to understand other persons and to be good to them. Then God will stay with us and we will lose our fear of the death..
