The only thing I disagree with Tolstoy on is his philosophical displeasure with science. I don’t believe he was totally anti-science, and he does seem to suggest that only people who believe science is the only truth are insufferable and wrong (he calls these people Germans), but he does seem to fall very much into the Luddite camp: anti-materialistic (which I agree), but anti-science, too (which I don’t).
