The work of Dostoevsky and the dialectic: the fetishism of the way, utopia as content (Editora Hedra), a writer, a teacher and a researcher Flávio Ricardo Vassoler, come out with the momentum is very originality and controversy. Here is the assessment of Susan McReynolds, a specialist in the works of Fiodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881) the school of Russian literature from Northwestern University (USA) – the institution that Vassoler did his research and literary critic Manuel Pinto da Costa, who signs the boot.
During the interview, which prevent in fact, let’s look at why put Dostoyevsky in dialogue with the critic, the Russian Mikhail Bakhtin; the philosophers of the German Hegel, Karl Marx, Theodor Adorno (1903-1969); and educator of the French Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail now known Cardiff, encryption of spirituality, Vassoler says that “Dostoevsky is still becoming Dostoevsky”.
In the book, not only live a life of tradition on Dostoevsky, as it defines its scope. This recipe is related to work?
We can talk about the two basic moments of this tradition that was important to you my book as the work of development: considerations Mikhail Bakhtin, problems of poetics of Dostoevsky (1929), about the possibility of the writer having erected a new literary form, the novel is polyphonic integral” – the complex relationship between Christianity and socialism in the midst of the work of Dostoevsky.
Bakhtin, with integrity, intellectual property, and acknowledge that your book failed to prove himself in the community, as the novel stereoscopic full if is. Bakhtin understands dialogia – words and ideas and modulated by another – as the presence of characters dostoievskianas. Sounds to musical tunes. Entrevemos cash veiled the Soviet dictatorship, through which the voices of the social can not express dialogicamente by Time, place and inclusion. But Bakhtin is not checked under the sign of development. If you have the approximate dialogia and sounds of the dialectic, it was possible to understand how the ontology edges of the background and copyright of faith and atheism, compassion and nihilism, utopia, and dystopia is articulated in the middle of the action. In this sense, I am in my book, which is an unusual position in the middle of the wealth of the critical relationship of dialectical mobilization aporias and shortcomings that Bakhtin could not overcome, on what conceituo as the dialectic between the melodies. I propose therefore gathered on a project that is critical of Russian began in less than a century.
Talk about the relationship between Christianity and socialism in the work of Dostoevsky.
“If God does not exist everything is permitted”: a saying attributed to Ivan Karamázov makes us understand that Dostoevsky, the death of God and the absence of immortality would lead to a vacuum of ethics that inflate the selfish, more stubborn. Where atheists, Dostoyevsky may be read essence to power of chaos: murder in crime and punishment: resentment, memories of the ground; extortion, rape, suicide, and sexual abuse of children in the Demons; patricide in the brothers Karamázov. Without God’s (supposed) altruism socialism would reverse the injustice and barbarism once the rebels to power. Dostoevsky brought to the fore such ideas decades before the horror of Stalin. But, also take a look at of the opposite of spiritual in Dostoevsky, if God does not exist and everything is allowed of God came into existence. The movement of the story that have the ability to overcome nihilism based on the redemption of the concepts of social presence and mercy, Inc…. Catalyst utopian Earth, coming from Eden – it would make sense if this life is one step on the long, harmonious and eternal process of “healing the spirit”.
