Abstract

The article presents an analysis of the statements and views of thinkers related to the intellectual movement “Conservative Revolution” in the Weimar Republic of the 1920—1930s regarding the image of Soviet Russia. The works of Oswald Spengler, Arthur Meller van den Brook and National Bolshevik Ernst Nikisch are briefly analyzed. Based on the analysis of sources and historiographic material, the author comes to the conclusion about the “oriental orientation” of the young conservative German intellectuals. The paper analyzes the presence of phylogenetic relationships between the ideas of Russian Eurasians about “Bolshevism as Asian socialism” and the views of German young conservatives and national Bolsheviks on the archaic and irrational nature of the Russian revolution. Particular importance is given to the analysis of the role of F. M. Dostoevsky in shaping the worldview of “conservative revolutionaries” and his image as a moral landmark. The paper analyzes the presence of phylogenetic bindings between the ideas of Russian Eurasians about “Bolshevism as Asian socialism” and the views of German young conservatives and National-Bolsheviks on the archaic and irrational nature of the Russian revolution. Particular importance is given to the analysis of the character of F. M. Dostoevsky in shaping the worldview of “conservative revolutionaries” and his image as a moral guide.
