Two giants of the literary world, Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy (1828-1910) from Russia and Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936) from Spain shared similar ideas on the concept of history in spite of their physical distance and a period of thirty–six years between them.
Both writers were interested in Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s (1770- 1831) philosophy on history. Their ideas on German philosopher’s concept of history are well known and have been given a lot of attention by their critics. There are, however, some other sources about history relevant to their Tolstoy’s and Unamuno’s thinking that have not been explored so far. The intention of my presentation is to fulfil this gap.
In addition, this paper introduces Tolstoy’s and Unamuno’s approaches to history and intrahistory in a comparative way.
