  • ABSTRACT

    This article deals with the genealogy of the Radical Left and the Conservative Revolution ideas in Dostoevsky’s work focusing on his novel “The Demons” (1872). It shows the genesis of the radical left-wing position of the young Dostoevsky and his mature and late conversion to Conservative Revolution as a model for understanding what happens with neoliberalism in the post-Trump era.
