Chapter Summary

This chapter shows the genesis of Eurasianism in the half-century that precedes its birth: the richness of philosophical currents as well as the development of orientalistic fashions in many fields of Russian thought announce the influence that Eurasianism, as a cultural and political movement, will have on the "Orient" (Laruelle 1999). The present work could well be regarded as the first step in showing how Eurasianism emerged and developed over the course of time. The focus here is on the approach to Jews and how Eurasianist views on Jews changed in the course of time. It also explains in original ways the traditional debates on the Russian identity: “Orient” is only the reversed mirror of “the West”; the appeal of Asia and discourses on the “yellow peril” reveal the Russian intellectuals’ affirmation of a specificity for their country in front of Europe.

Keywords: genesis of Eurasianism; Jews; orientalistic fashions; Russian intellectuals; yellow peril
