I am eager to read your thoughts about Dugin. I became acquainted with his thoughts after reading Brothers Karamazov. I wanted to understand the Russian psyche a little better and found Vladimir Soloviev and Nicolas Berdyaev. Soloviev and Berdyaev seem to be on the other end of the spectrum from Dugin. I am wondering if Dugin was influenced by these philosophers? Thank you for your dedication!
