The Universal Vision of Vladimir Solovyov: How Judaism and the Kabbalah Inspired Russia’s Greatest 19th Century Philosopher
 
Vladimir Solovyov (1853-1900) was the greatest Russian philosopher of the 19th century. He was a confidant of Dostoevsky and other prominent intellectuals. But unlike his anti-Semitic friends and colleagues, he envisioned a universalist religion, a vision inspired by his studies and appreciation of Judaism and the Kabbalah.
 
Dr. Benjamin Jens is Assistant Professor of Russian & Slavic Studies at the University of Arizona. His main area of research is 19th-century Russian literature, especially the works of Fyodor Dostoevsky, along with research interests in Eastern European cinema, science fiction, and cultural ties between the Western Balkans and Russia. He is director of the Arizona in Russia study abroad program in Moscow, Russia.
