Therefore, one could say that results of computer-assisted stylistic research stand or fall on the criteria the investigator selects to examine and of course other facts over which the scholar has little power, for example, the size of the sample being studied. At one level, simply the data presented, such as Dostoevsky's average word and sentence length, or his most frequently used words, or the distribution of parts of speech in his sentence are of interest to the scholar concerned with the author's style.

Focusing on the pervasive spiritual consciousness at play, Panichas views Dostoevsky not as a religious doctrinaire, but as a visionary whose five great novels constitute a sequential meditation on man's human and superhuman destiny. Casimir Katz Verlag, Gernsbach, 1986. Not much attention has been given to Dostoyevsky's concern with the crisis of the modern West, although allusions to almost every aspect of Western civilizationÔÇöincluding the political, economic, and social dimensionsÔÇöare present in his literary works and abound in his secondary writings. Der letzte Abschnitt schlie├člich ist der in Dostojewskijs Werken immer wieder erw├Ąhnten Gestalt Mohammeds gewidmet. Es w├Ąre w├╝nschenswert, wenn die hier angef├╝hrten ├ťbersetzungsfehler und verschiedene Ungenauigkeiten in der ├ťbersetzung in einer k├╝nftigen neuen Auflage des Buches berichtigt w├╝rden. Die Biographie ist augenscheinlich f├╝r den interessierten Laien gedacht, - auf Anmerkungen wurde der leichteren Lesbarkeit willen bewu├čt verzichtet, daf├╝r ist jedem Kapitel im Anhang eine ausf├╝hrliche Bibliographie beigegeben.

The Brothers Karamazov, in the most conventionally literary chapter, which is also the most valuable to the Dostoevsky scholar, is placed in the context of various channels of the Russian Orthodox religious tradition. I will have occasion to comment on the former later; as far as psychological analysis is concerned, Kashina discusses Dostoevsky's reluctance to fully explain human behavior, hence the effect of unexpectedness and the multi-motivational aspect of his heroes' behavior. Raskol'nikov senses the eternal ground of his being. Still more unexpected and fascinating although this reviewer thought it quite unconvincing is the chapter on the Idiot, in which Myshkin is interpreted in terms of several analogies to the god Dionysos. On the one hand, she points out that Dostoevsky believed that man must answer for his actions no matter what the circumstances and that neither education, improper environment, nor social poverty justifies evil. Where she is at her most provocative and interesting ÔÇö as in discussing the nature of Raskol'nikov's tragedy in schism and alienation; the intentions of Porfiry I disagree with her, but that is incidental ; or the relationship of the epilogue to the main part of the novel she seems to see it right --she scarcely mentions time, or refers to it only perfunctorily: because in fast a special analysis of time is not required, for the most part, to reach a true understanding of the novel. Vorweg verdient die ausgezeichnete Bibliographie hervorgehoben zu werden.

Prinadlezhnost' Dostoevskomu: K voprosu ob atributsii F. Zu vermissen ist ein eigener Abschnitt ├╝ber Claude Bernard, der zwar viermal erw├Ąhnt wird, wegen seiner Bedeutung f├╝r die Br├╝der Karamazov aber eine ausf├╝hrliche Behandlung verdienen w├╝rde. A future second edition may well devote more space to an analysis of Dostoevsky's relationship to Russia's radical critics of the sixties and the arguments of another crucial text by Dostoevsky, Notes from Underground. The last phase would lead in Dostoevsky's view to the shortlived triumph of Communism and the merging of the office of the Roman Catholic pontiff with the leadership of an atheistic and materialistic order on earth. After studying philosophy at the University of Toronto, he took his M. He demonstrates not only that Dostoyevsky's observations about the West constitute a coherent critique intimately related to the deepest aspects of his though, but also that these can be rendered more systematic and explicit.
