In addition to Tolstoy s philosophy of history, which he addresses in his most famous essay, The Hedgehog and the Fox, Berlin considers the social and political circumstances that produced such men as Herzen, Bakunin, Turgenev, Belinsky, and others of the Russian intelligentsia, who made up, as Berlin describes, the largest single Russian contribution to social change in the world.
