Abstract

The primary aim of this thesis is to explore the ideas of four Russian thinkers - Vladimir Solovyov, Lev Shestov, Semyon Frank and Nikolai Berdyaev - in light of how their views contribute to an understanding of the religious individual. I begin with an introductory chapter which looks at the roots of the religious individual in Russian thought, focussing on the two areas which most influenced the above thinkers: Slavophilism and the Russian literature of the nineteenth century. I then proceed to look at each thinker in his turn, examining in particular what each one has to say about religious individualism. I also attempt in each chapter to compare and contrast the ideas of the other thinkers represented in the thesis, so that each one is not looked at in isolation, but as part of a larger 'discussion'. In the final two chapters I summarize the thought that has been explored in the dissertation, and give an account of what modern Soviet criticism has to say about the four Russian philosophers. I hope in this dissertation to be able to show ail four of these thinkers - although in different ways and to different degrees - as sensitive to the religious individual.
