Leonid Luks's Lecture "Beyond Westernism and Slavophilism - Eurasianism Ideology and Its European Context (1921-1938)"
On December 3, 2020, within the framework of the seminar "West and East: Universalism of Culture," there was held a lecture by Professor Leonid Luks, academic supervisor of the Laboratory.
The Eurasianism movement that emerged in 1921 in the Russian emigration was a completely new phenomenon in the intellectual history of Russia. It went beyond the traditional Russian dispute between Westerners and Slavophiles and belonged to the most original, though controversial, ideological trends in post-revolutionary Russia. This opinion was held by many analysts, including critics of Eurasianism, soon after the emergence of this movement.
The fact that the Eurasianists had to fight on several ideological fronts brings us to the question: what place did this trend occupy in the ideological and political spectrum of Europe at that time? The report was devoted to this issue, as well as to the analysis of the main ideological attitudes of Eurasianism.
