Suicide as a Cultural Institution in Dostoevsky's Russia
Cornell University Press, 1997 - 319 Seiten
Analyzing a variety of sources - medical reports, social treatises, legal codes, newspaper articles, fiction, private documents left by suicides - Irina Paperno describes the search for the meaning of suicide.
Paperno focuses on Russia of the 1860s-1880s, when suicide was at the center of public attention. Because Russian thought was influenced by Western European models, she examines how Western European science in the nineteenth century discussed suicide and human action in general. Throughout her book, Paperno offers glimpses of the men behind the interpretations, from Fyodor Dostoevsky and the German pathologist Rudolf Virchow to the anonymous journalists who reported suicides in Russian newspapers and magazines.
