Leonid Luks's Report at the Institute of Philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences
On May 15, 2018 the academic supervisor of the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue Leonid Luks made the presentation on the theme "Reflections on the emergence of the "Conservative Revolution" in Germany: Time, Man, Ideas" at the Institute of Philosophy of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The report of the professor of the Catholic University of Eichstätt was held at the nineteenth meeting of the seminar "Man in modern scientific knowledge: methodological problems of interdisciplinarity" under the guidance of the chief research fellow of the International Laboratory for the study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue professor Marina Kiseleva. L. Luks's report was devoted to questions about who were "conservative revolutionaries" and how it is now possible to determine their ideological guidelines.
Abstract of the report:
In recent years, the ideas of the German "conservative revolution" that arose in Weimar Germany in the 1920s are of great interest in Russia. Some authors call them almost the last word of European thought, a trend that has not only a brilliant past, but also a great future. The conservative revolution unified paradoxically the concepts that deny each other: after all conservatives usually try to protect the old from the encroachments of the revolutionaries, and the revolutionaries seek to destroy the old in the name of the new.
