In 2004, Bloom, in commentary on Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, wherein the character Raskolnikov is said to apply Adolphe Quetelet’s social physics theories to the young women he meets on the street, reasoning that there is no point in helping her, since her fate had already been determined (see: fatalism) statistically by the laws of social physics, states that in this example Dostoyevsky is said to be exemplifying “how the laws of social physics conflict with Christ’s commandment to love one’s neighbor”, which, according to Mark 12:31 (ΡΊ), is the second greatest commandment in the Bible.
