Leo Tolstoy

(1828-1910)

Russian Author
Count Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy

In his latest years, Tolstoy's philosophy was somehow similar to Thoreau's boosting non-violence as the proper response to aggression, putting great emphasis on fair treatment of the poor and working class. Tolstoy was also rejecting then the State institution when seeking answers to questions of morality, like Proudhon, but was believing firmly in God. The Kingdom of God is Within You influenced Gandhi to the idea of non-resistance to evil. Rousseau's Confessions had an immense influence on him.


Tolstoy describes his young age in A Confession: "I cannot recall those years without horror, loathing, and heart-rending pain. I killed people in war, challenged men to duels with the purpose of killing them, and lost at cards; I squandered the fruits of the peasants' toil and then had them executed; I was a fornicator and a cheat. Lying, stealing, promiscuity of every kind, drunkenness, violence, murder - there was not a crime I did not commit...Thus I lived for ten years."

In A Confession, Tolstoy wrote:

Or "I would reflect on how the people might attain prosperity, and I would suddenly ask myself, "What concern is it of mine?" or in the middle of thinking about the fame that my works were bringing me I would say to myself, "Very well, you will be more famous than Gogol, Pushkin, Shakespeare, Moliere, more famous than all the writers in the world - so what?

And I could find absolutely no reply."
