Westernism as a disease of Russian civilization

Abstract. We deal with the phenomenon of Russian Westernism as an ideology that has as its main objective the mechanical change to a different civilizational basis Western European institutions and values without taking into account the cultural and historical specificity of Russia.

Westernism is only indirectly connected with borrowing from the West the knowledge and technologies in the military-technical, scientific, cultural and other spheres.

As a result of the ideological and political influence of Westerners in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries foreign interests, ideology, customs had often for the Russian ruling class a higher priority than their own. The article describes the reaction to the Westernization of Peter the Great of foreign ideologists J.-J. Rousseau and J. De Maistre and national oriented thinkers N.M. Karamzin, A.S. Shishkov, S.N. Glinka and M.P. Pogodin. Despite the opposition of traditionalists and conservatives in the second half of the XIXth century, Russian social thought was dominated by Westernized in its genesis and nature such ideologies as liberalism, populism and socialism.At the present stage different varieties of Westernized ideology are often based on russophobia and they openly declare the necessity of de-sovereignization and partition of historical Russia.

Key words: Westernism, the reaction of conservative thought on Russian Westernism, pro-western course in Russian public opinion and policy, the negative effects of Westernizing project.
