(1821–1881) Fyodor Dostoevsky was a Russian novelist lauded for his psychological insight. Nietzsche examines Dostoevsky in his discussion of criminals, praising Dostoevsky’s surprisingly positive experiences living amongst criminals in Siberia, where Dostoevsky spent four years in a prison camp. (Nietzsche, in Twilight of the Idols, argues that criminals aren’t weak and flawed, but “strong human being[s] under unfavorable conditions.”)
