Abstract


This paper considers Dostoyevsky’s understanding of human freedom. It is shown that Dostoevsky reduced the freedom of Human being to a freedom of will and thought that “the predefiniteness of the world events” is the main obstacles in its implementation. The work promoted a logical analysis of the difficulties associated with the reduction of human freedom to the “freedom of will” and to the “freedom of choice”. Has been demonstrated the reception of Dostoevsky’s ideas by F. Kafka in “Process” also.
