His father, a nobleman, was a military officer but was discharged for "riotous behaviour".

In , he carried off a local Crimean girl, the daughter of a Greek merchant, from Feodosiya , eventually marrying her. He later lived in various Ottoman towns as a Russian consular agent, devoting his leisure time to writing oriental fiction on many themes, some of which included a condemnation of homophobia and implied that he may have been bisexual. Later that fall, he moved to the Russian monastery on Mount Athos.

Seven years later, he secretly took the tonsure at the Optina monastery , famous for its startsy. He died as a monk in the Troitse-Sergiyeva Lavra. Like Nikolay Danilevsky and Fyodor Dostoyevsky before him, he was ill at ease with the Western consumer society and the cult of material prosperity. His aesthetic and political theories had some similarities to those of Friedrich Nietzsche and Oswald Spengler. Leontiev felt that the West had reached the beginning of secondary simplification.

A pessimist, Leontiev made several predictions that turned out to come true. He prophesied that in the 20th century, there would be a bloody revolution in Russia led by an " anti-Christ " that would be socialist and tyrannical in nature and whose rulers would wield even more power than their tsarist predecessors.

He said, " Socialism is the feudalism of the future". He also claimed that technology would one day lead to universal destruction.
