The Nexus Institute in 2019 celebrated its 25th Anniversary with a celebrated and highly anticipated debate on stage between Bernard-Henri Lévy and Aleksandr Dugin, advertised as defenders of the Enlightenment and counter-Enlightenment.

Dugin explains his disappointment with Lévy, and I fully concur. It was political posturing of the most trite and unfair kind, rather than a substantive, insight-generating debate. It was drenched Western arrogance, posing as so-called “liberal values”.

Aleksandr Gelyevich Dugin is a philosopher, former Professor and Advisor to the Kremlin, and one of the best-known writers and political commentators in post-Soviet Russia. He is a leading theorist of Eurasianism.

A Soviet dissident in the 1980s, Dugin has authored more than 60 books, among them Foundations of Geopolitics (1997), which has been used as a textbook in the Academy of the General Staff of the Russian military, and The Fourth Political Theory (2009).
