Conversations with Dostoevsky

Imagine that you were sitting up one evening, drinking a glass of whisky, reading Dostoevsky, and thinking about the eternal questions – and then, out of nowhere, Dostoevsky himself is there. What would you say? More importantly, what would he say? This is the starting-point of the new blog ‘Conversations with Dostoevsky’ which offers a series of conversations around such topics including faith, the Bible, Christ, Russia, Judaism, God and immortality, with occasional forays into literature. Episodes will be posted weekly through the spring and summer of 2021.

George Pattison has published extensively in the fields of theology and philosophy of religion. He is co-editor (with Diane Thompson) of Dostoevsky and the Christian Tradition (CUP 2001) and, with Caryl Emerson and Randall Poole, has more recently co-edited The Oxford Handbook of Russian Religious Thought (OUP 2019).
