The Discovery of Chance: The Life and Thought of Alexander Herzen

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, May 9, 2016 - History - 608 pages
The intellectual Alexander Herzen was as famous in his day as Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. Aileen Kelly presents the first fully rounded study of the farsighted genius whom Isaiah Berlin called the forerunner of much twentieth-century thought. For Herzen, history, like Darwinian nature, was an improvisation both constrained and encouraged by chance.
