Fjodor Stepun and Ernst Jünger
intellectuals at war
The article provides a comparison of two intellectual accounts of experiences in the First World War—From the Letters of an Artillery Ensign (1918) by the Russian philosopher and writer Fjodor Stepun and The Storm of Steel by the German essayist Ernst Jünger. The aim of this article is to reveal similarities and differences between the "optics" of Jünger and Stepun who are reporting one and the same event but deal with two different images of the Great War.
