Abstract [en]

"Groundlessness as foundation" presents a reading of Andrei Platonov's treatment of early Soviet society in the novel Kotlovan [The Foundation Pit] as a socity in between one that has lost its old grounding and is in want of new. Lane approaches Platonov's understanding of the existential conditions of the post-revolutionary society through the notions of grounding and groundlessness (with special attention to Heidegger's treatment of these concepts). In the novel, Platonov presents a confused and alienated society, which in its new grounding sought to avoid, but per force had to face the very groundlessness that spurred the Revolution.
