On September 15, 2017 the academic supervisor of the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue, HSE, presented his report "Special Pathways of Russia and Germany in the XIX and XX Centuries".

In his report Professor Luks noted that the 20th century, which ended in Europe with a victorious procession of democratic ideas, began with a riot against pluralistically organized societies and the values they upheld. In its radicalism this revolt surpassed all previous disturbances of this kind. Germany and Russia formed the center of this uprising against the values that are commonly associated with the West. Of course, one should bear in mind that this revolt both in Germany and in Russia was inspired by diametrically opposed ideas.
Moderator: Head of the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue V.K. Kantor
