Russia in the European Home?: Convergence, Cosmopolitanism and Cosmism in Late Soviet Europeanisation
Södertörn University, School of Historical and Contemporary Studies, History of Ideas.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-2284-3928
2013 (English)In: Europe-Asia Studies, ISSN 0966-8136, E-ISSN 1465-3427, Vol. 65, no 2, 321-346 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The aim is to present a conceptual and historical reconstruction of Gorbachev's notion of a ‘European home’, its underlying philosophy of history as well as its relation to Russian cosmism. The concept is contextualised within the convergence debate of the post-war period, in which a rapprochement between communism and capitalism was posited. The essay concludes with reflections on what the conceptualisation can tell us about the fall of communism and what impact the concept has had on today's search for a common European identity. An argument is advanced that the notion contained paradoxes that rather contributed to the dislocation of post-Soviet Russia from Europe.
