Fyodor Dostoevsky

(this post may be updated)

The 200th anniversary of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s birthday is approaching (Nov 11.).

I’ve just started going through one of his “Notes”..

“Iniquity” is a biblical concept, and Dostoevsky defined it quite well here:

Despite all conceivable points of view, everyone agrees that there are such crimes, which always and everywhere, according to all possible laws, from the beginning of the world indisputably are counted as crimes and which will continue to be counted as such, as long as the human being remains a human being

(Notes from the Dead House – 2nd chap.)
