God, will and destiny, constituting concepts in the artistic world of I.A. Goncharov form the plot and determine configuration of the personosphere in his last novel. The plot of “The Precipice” can be narrowed down to the formula of “overcoming self-will” affecting the main characters. A concept-intermediary “passion” appears in opposition of destiny – an objective course of events and will – the subjective influence on events. Destiny is generally interpreted in the novel and in religious consciousness as a manifestation of God’s will; therefore refusal of the desires associated with the manifestation of pride or corporeality directs a person to humility and acceptance of traditional values.
