He's not a philosopher (as per Russian culture commonly understood).

No, really, "Dostoevsky" is the last answer you give to the question "Who is a Russian philosopher?"
"I don't think so..."
You're wrong, then.
"No, I don't think so."
Well, perhaps it's that you can't be brought to *see* this.

Briefly: It would be difficult to produce a Russian person who would, under any compulsion, call Dostoevsky a "philosopher".
It is rather their idea that he is an example of a *non*-philosopher, "what you could be instead".
