Jovo Bakić Evropska krajnja desnica (1945-2018)

Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory invites you to a seminar dedicated to a new book by Jovo Bakic, European Ultimate Right (1945-2018) which will take part at the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory (hall on the 4th floor) on Wedsnday, October 16th at noon.

European Ultimate Right represents an all encompassing and systmic sociological study dedicated to the significant political phenomenon which – especially in a general public sphere – often times is easily explained. The book tries to overcome such a superficiality both on theoretical and detailed empirical level that concerns genealogical analysis of ideology and organization of different instances of modern European ultimate right as well as key actors that have taken part in its consolidaiton. Seminar will try to confront, from different perspectives, various important questions that this book offers: what are the constituitive characteristics of contemporary ultimate right; in what ways does the specificity of local context modify it; in what ways does the apperance of the ultimate right influence the political life of present day Europe?
