Description: In this chapter of Approaches to Teaching Anna Karenina, Professor Donna Tussing Orwin examines the role of philosophy in Anna Karenina. Particular attention is paid to Tolstoy’s ambivalent attitude towards philosophical thought. On the one hand, Tolstoy rejects philosophy’s ability to explain life. On the other, Tolstoy recognizes philosophy as a legitimate mode of thought when it serves practical, moral goals. Throughout the essay, Professor Orwin explores this contradiction between Tolstoy’s public and private stance towards philosophy, and reconstructs part of the philosophical thought he drew upon in constructing Anna Karenina.
