Faith Regained? Dostoyevsky and Nietzsche on Nihilism and Faith
This is a short excerpt from a much longer episode available only with a paid subscription to my substack at AstralFlight.Substack.ComIs it possible to come through nihilism with a an intact faith in God? Worse, if you lose faith, can you get it back? If so, how may it have changed? We discuss Nietzsche and Dostoyevski and explore what their writing can tell us about these questions, and examine whether they contain within them instructions for those grappling with a loss of faith and how to get it back. We focus on Crime and Punishment, The Brothers Karamazov, The Anti-Christ, Thus Spoke Zarsathustra, Twilight of the Idols, and a new translation of a letter Dostoyevsky wrote to his brother about his commuted death sentence.I am joined by @1147x1147, translator of many of Dostoyevsky’s letters, and returning guest @Athens_Stranger
My friend Spendo and I discuss some details and the backround to some of our favorite Tarantino films (specifically Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction), which leads to a wider conversation about his legacy and place in the pantheon of American directors.
