Thinking Aloud
Legacy of Fyodor Dostoevsky, with Gary Browning and Tom Rogers
So great is the value of Dostoevsky that to have produced him is by itself sufficient justification for the existence of the Russian people in the world." So wrote one notable Russian philosopher [Berdayev]. That statement may be far flung ? but the point is clear. Fyodor Dostoevsky was a stunning talent as a novelist and an extraordinary thinker. Scholars Gary Browning and Tom Rogers discuss Dostoevsky's contributions. Both Browning and Rogers are retired professors from the BYU Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages, former directors of the BYU Honors Program, and former LDS mission presidents who served in the former Soviet Union.—Original airdate: 11/17/2006
