About this video

Runtime: 1 hour 1 min

Gregory Shokhikyan talks about Nikolai Berdyaev. Berdyaev, a Russian philosopher, influenced Western thinkers such as Hannah Arendt and Martin Luther King Jr. His aristocratic upbringing fuelled his philosophical views. He engaged briefly with Marxism before focusing on idealism and formed the Academy of Spiritual Culture before moving to Paris to escape Soviet pressure. Berdyaev's major works, like "Slavery and Freedom," embody personalistic metaphysics, with his aphoristic style and use of "exercises" underscoring his exploratory approach to philosophical subjects.
