Konstantin Leontiev and the Balkans
Константин Леонтиев и Балканите

Category: Historical studies
Language: Bulgarian


    The monograph examines the political ideology and historiosophy of Konstantin Leontiev (18311891)  a prominent Russian politician and philosopher of the 19th century. His life is closely connected with the Balkan provinces of the Ottoman Empire, where he was consul from 1863 to 1874. In Bulgaria he is known mainly for his "anti-Bulgarian" position on the Church question, but his literary heritage is much richer and more diverse. His theory that all societies and civlizations undergo a state of flowering and increasing complexity followed by one of "secondary simplification", decay and, ultimately, death is particularly relevant in today's transitional period of dramatic political upheavals and transformations, which can be defined as the New Middle Ages.
