Ivan Turgenev is among the greatest Russian writers of the nineteenth century. In his pieces, Turgenev reveals deep concern for the tangible problems of Russia in that particular time, like the development of peasants and intellectuals, the girls wonder as well as the hierarchy of Russian population. In his masterpiece Fathers and Sons, Turgenev highlights the great difference between subsequent productions by describing their distinctive philosophical viewpoints and life ideologies. The protagonists of the publication, Arkady and Bazarov, are two coworkers who return to their own houses wrapped up in fresh, rigid philosophical views intended to give awareness to their meanings and to bring enlightenment to the "ignorant" old creation represented by their parents. But age is the one thing that unifies the 2 characters. Thus, they reflect the young, excited generation that needs arduously to build its place on earth and also to establish that it is much better than the previous "backward" production. But Arkady and Bazarov portray two completely different personalities. Bazarov is a very simple but powerful and self-confident character who is indifferent towards the emotional and spiritual world. He promotes the nihilism current, putting value in real, objective things as opposed to abstract ones. He says about Arkady's dad that he "wastes his time studying poetry," and claims that "a good chemist is twenty five times as easy as any poet." In addition, he thinks of the old generation as being made up of "old idealists" who think in romanticism and foolery. To the contrary, Arkady represents a simple but feeble and uncertain character. He follows his fantastic nihilist friend liberally encouraging the belief in nothing and the skeptical analysis.
