Description

This is a philosophical, psychological and economic analysis of the basic archetypes of mentality of the "Homo Sovieticus". The "child archetype", "twilight mentality", and archetypes of worship and protection are some of the concepts the author uses to describe the phenomenology of Russian and Soviet conservatism. Vladimir Zviglyanich analyzes the so-called "Turannian" components of the Russian national psyche, and discusses the views of both traditional and modern "Eurasians". Using literature, the media, and economic data, he seeks to illustrate the emergence of the anti-totalitarian spirit as the precondition for the transition to "positive pragmatism", or the emergence of a Russian version of protestant ethics.
