Berdyaev outlines his philosophical journey & describes the influences which brought him to his intellectual position. In his view, the only way of escape from the many forms of slavery—spiritual, economic, political—which shackle & improverish the spirit lies in the fuller realization of personality, as he defines it. Berdyaev turned to religious views & played a large part in the renaissance of religious & philosophical thought in Russian intellectual life early in the 20th century. In 1922 he & a number of other intellectuals were expelled from the USSR. His writings most often deal with the problem of freedom & human relations to the world in light of this problem.
