Here Solovyov is in complete accord with apocalyptic folklore, which saw the cause of evil in the universe as the rebellion of an angel of great wisdom and beauty: that angel preferred himself to God. Solovyov is one of those pessimistic philosophers who hold that every ego repeats the act of the fallen angel; it cannot be otherwise in the order of Nature except through the intervention of divine grace.
In the introduction, Solovyov defines the aim of his book as polemical and apologetic; it contains a warning and a prophecy. Expressing himself previously only in treatises, lec‘Vladimir Solovyov (1853-1900) was a Russian religious philosopher and poet, indebted in some of his ideas to Plato— but also to Dostoevsky. Solov yov influenced the generation of Russian symbolists. Best known among his numerous philosophical works are his Lectures C oncerning G od-M anhood (1877-1884), his long treatise in French written in an ecumenical spirit, La Russie et L'Eglise Universelle (1889), and The Justification o f the G ood (1898).
