Essence of Beauty Debate Considering FM Dostoyevsky
The article is dedicated to the debate on the essence of beauty through the prism of the evolution from the ideas of Fyodor Dostoyevsky about beauty in a broad historical-philosophical context (Plato, Kant, Schelling, Vl. Solovyov, N. Berdyaev, V. Zenkovsky). The author of the article distinguishes and describes the three stages in Dostoyevsky's views on beauty: "Schiller", "The Brothers Karamazov" and "Sophian". Beauty is viewed from the standpoint of spiritual cognition, proceeding from the concept of spiritual archetype of the mankind, which represented by the Trinity of Truth, Virtue, and Beauty united by Love.
