Power and Suffering in Dostoevsky and Homer


Katerina Kern


Presented at the CiRCE National Conference 2023.

The wisdom of our age posits that suffering comes about through lack of power, and power, therefore, could alleviate suffering—and ought to. In order to examine this idea, this talk will compare the nature of power and its relationship to suffering in Crime and Punishment and The Iliad.
