“Um peixe é um peixe”, ou a escada de Tolstói

Translated title of the contribution: "A Fish is a fish", or Tolstoy’s ladder

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This article focuses on Tolstoy’s version of the gospels and on its interpretative and methodological strategies. It aims to show that the singularity of this work is largely indebted to the pedagogical experiments that Tolstoy undertakes in the 1860s and 1870s, and that it tackles many of the questions that would later show in Wittgenstein’s philosophy.
