Chapter Summary

In post-Soviet Russia, the importance of identitary thought tying the country to Asia, along with the renewal of geopolitical fashions (geocul-turalism and "civilizationism"), invites us to reexamine older intellectual traditions about Russian imperial expansion since the second half of the nineteenth century. The survey in this book permits us to replace Russian intellectual life in the setting of Western intellectual life of the time. It also explains in original ways the traditional debates on Russian identity. The study of the genesis of the Eurasianist ideology in the half-century that preceded its creation permits us to avoid cliches and to question ourselves about the intellectual evolution of the Russian world. The resurgence of the Eurasianist movement with the downfall of the Soviet Union fits into the European renewal of conservative thought that started in the United States and the rest of the West at the beginning of the 1980s.

Keywords: Eurasianist movement; pan-Slavism; post-Soviet Russia; Russian orientalism; Turco-muslim; western intellectual life; yellow peril
