Eurasianism as a Response to Global Crisis: Dugin's political ideology in historical and contemporary context

07 March 2023 Venue: Lónyay-Hatvany Villa- 1. Csónak str., 1015 Budapest

Dr. Noble discusses the Neo-Eurasian political philosophy of Alexander Dugin in relation to the long century of Russian Eurasianism. Seeking to explain Russia's unique social, political and cultural essence, Eurasianism relies on a combination of historical, geographical and esoteric arguments. While Dugin's extreme "counter-Western" philosophy has been a fringe mainstay for decades, the recent rapid transformation of geopolitical dynamics has potentially created a new place for Neo-Eurasianism in Russian political and cultural discourse.
