'Labyrinth: An International Journal for Philosophy, Value Theory and Sociocultural Hermeneutics' is preparing a Special Issue on the occasion of the 200th Birthday of Fyodor Dostoevsky. As it is in some sense a continuation of the previous issues, dedicated on the intertwining of Philosophy, Art and Literature. From special interest are the following topics:

• The philosophical reception of Dostoevsky's ideas in Existential Philosophy and Personalism (Shestov, Berdyaev, Marcel, Sartre, Camus, Beauvoir a.o.)
• Dostoevsky and Psychoanalysis (Freud, Kristeva)
• Dostoevsky, Atheism and Religious Thought
• The Question of Sense and Non-Sense (of Life)
• Evil and the Dark Side of Human Nature
• The Identity Question: The Double
• Dostoevsky and Women
• Dostoevsky's Ethical and Political Thought in Contemporary Context

Other topics are also welcome.

Researchers working in the above fields are invited to submit a brief abstract with a short bio-bibliographical note (including real names, degree, position and main publications) until the 4 of April 2021. Authors who have already a finished unpublished paper are welcome to submit it within an abstract, a bio-bibliographical note; the paper should be formatted according the Guidelines.
