International Academic Conference: Leo Tolstoy and the French Enlightenment Century. Tolstoy and the French Revolution

July 22-26, 2017
Yasnaya Polyana Estate-Museum 

For Leo Tolstoy, just as for many Russian thinkers and public figures of the late 19th – early 20th centuries, the legacy of the French Revolution was of vital importance. The adoption of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, the establishment of the parliamentary system, the transition from absolute monarchy to a constitutional one and then to the republic, the lifting of censorship, and anticlericalism radically changed the country. However, the implementation of the ideas of the Enlightenment, which began with parliamentary debates and public discontent, escalated into the necessity to hold onto revolutionary power by means of wars and terror, and a constant fight with foreign and domestic enemies. This dilemma became essential for the Russian revolutions of 1905-07 and 1917, and it is appropriate that this issue is the focus of Leo Tolstoy’s teaching of nonresistance to evil by violence. “The great French revolution proclaimed unquestionable truths, but all of them became a lie when they started to be introduced by means of violence,” he wrote in his diary on October 22, 1904.
