There's a quote always attributed to Winston Churchill - falsely, I think? - that goes something like, "If you're not a liberal at 20, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by 30, you have no brain." I've got a different version that I like a lot better, and it goes, "If you're not reading Nietzsche at 20, you have no heart. But if you haven't transitioned to Dostoevsky by 30..." In this episode, I look through the lives and work of the two 19th century existentialist authors, who have a great deal in common, but who, in the end, couldn't be more different.
