* Book: NOOMAKHIA: Wars of the Mind. Alexander Dugin. Academic Project (28 vol Russian edition),


For background, see the entry on Noology.



From the publisher:

"Noomakhia: Wars of the Mind is the ongoing magnum opus of the “most dangerous philosopher in the world”, Alexander Dugin (1962-). Soon to enter its final, 28th volume in Russian, Noomakhia is shaping up to be one of the 21st century’s most ambitious and complex contributions to numerous fields and schools of thought. Beyond a series of innovative Noological studies in the history of Civilizations, and beyond an original culmination of many of the author’s previous ideas and works, Noomakhia aims to inaugurate a new philosophical paradigm, based on the radical deconstruction of the universalism of Western Modernity and the daring reconstruction of a pluriversal model of the variations of the Logoi which structure human cultures. Noomakhia strives to initiate a new anthropology, to establish a new discourse on the history and structures of the Noomachy (“War of the Mind”) that conditions the diversity of human civilizations, and to contribute to an inter-continental Dialogue of Civilizations."



"Noomakhia is the struggle in the sphere of the ideal. The author presents humanity as an ensemble of civilizational paradigms which hold continuous dialogue (whether agreement, struggle, understanding, solidarity, or opposition) between one another over the course of all of world history. The panorama of modern humanity presents a diversity of philosophical Logoi, types of rationalities, and mythological matrices – from the European (bringing together Western European and Eastern European components), the Russian, American, Semitic, Iranian, and Indian to the Chinese, Japanese, African and Oceanic (Polynesian). In deconstructing his reflections on the studied material, the author insists that deconstruction should also be accomplished with respect to the observatory point itself."


3. From the author, Alexander Dugin:

“The Noomakhia project is based on an in-depth study of the different cultures, philosophical systems, arts, religions and psychological features and characteristics of human civilizations. Noomakhia examines all peoples – ancient and modern, highly sophisticated and “primitive”, those highly technologically developed and those lacking a written language. The ultimate aim of Noomakhia is to demonstrate and conclusively prove that no single culture can be regarded in a hierarchical way (developed/under-developed, higher/lower, modern/premodern, civilized/savage, and so on). The responsible evaluation of any human culture must be judged from within, by those who belong to it, and without the imposition of outside biases (interpretation is always culturally biased). Noomakhia argues the case for the dignity of humanity that lives within the incommensurability of all its existing cultural forms.

The starting point – and the main feature of Noomakhia – is the concept of the Three Logoi, the three Noological paradigms which define the structure of any culture. The Three Logoi are

  • The Apollonian (patriarchal, hierarchical, androcratic, vertical, exclusive, “heavenly”, transcendent) – the light Logos;
  • The Dionysian (middle, androgynous, ecstatic, immanent without materialism, balanced, dialectic) – the dark Logos;
  • The Cybelean (matriarchal, horizontal, gynocratic, inclusive, chthonic, immanent, materialistic) – the black Logos.

Noomakhia proposes that all three of these Logoi are present in every culture, but they are irreducible (invariant) and always keep their distinct essence. Hence the concept of Noomakhia (or “Noomachy”), the constant battle between the Three Logoi that constitutes the dynamic of the creation of the moments of the cultural and historical dialectic. These are variables in the timeline of the history of any culture and they develop in differing stages and phases. There is no universal rule that has defined or can define the succession and duration of these phases and moments in the Noomachy.Every culture and civilization has its own, unique sequence of the process of Noomakhia, with its own unique particularities characterizing the victories and triumphs of the various Logoi which fundamentally transform all roles. Each culture must be studied and assessed individually and with considerable care, avoiding any temptation to project the structure of one’s own studied experience onto the Noomakhia of others.

The second principle of the Noomakhia project is defining the field for research and the limits of civilization. The concept of civilization is cultural and based on the presumption of a coexistence among the peoples of the earth of different existential circles (or horizons), which are identified as the plurality of Daseins. The next step is the clarification of the spatial concept of culture of the civilizations studied and the presentation of the semantic sequences (l’historial, Seynsgeschichte) of the most significant events interpreted in the optic of these concrete peoples and cultures.”


Vol. 1: The Three Logoi – Apollo, Dionysus, and Cybele

(Moscow: Academic Project, 2014)


"The first book of the Noomakhia cycle, The Three Logoi: Apollo, Dionysus, and Cybele, is dedicated to studying the question of the multiplicity of the Logoi and philosophical and mytho-symbolic paradigms which define the structures of different civilizations. This book represents the philosophical and methodological introduction to the Noomakhia cycle; it describes the models of the three Logoi – of Apollo, Dionysus, and Cybele – which, in the author’s opinion, lie at the heart of diverse philosophical, religious, scientific, and political systems. From this angle, the author examines in detail the philosophy of Plato, the Neoplatonists (Plotinus and Proclus), Aristotle’s doctrine of categories, Christian Gnosticism, Hermetism, and various forms of materialist and nominalist worldviews.”

“The Latin Logos: The Sun and the Cross, continues Alexander Dugin’s Noomakhia cycle in describing another Western European space in its foundational, unique culturo-historical components – those of the Latin world of Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Having taken shape in antiquity and reached its apogee in the era of the rise of Rome, the Latin Logos became the pole of Western Christianity, determining both the culture of the European Middle Ages and the religious and geopolitical balance of European countries in Modernity as a stronghold of Catholicism, the Counter-Reformation, and conservatism.”

(Moscow: Academic Project, 2015)

"A description of French identity and studies various aspects of the French and, more broadly, Celtic Dasein as manifest in mythology, history, philosophy, cultural, and mysticism.

Since the Middle Ages, France and Germany have acted as the two main poles of the dialectical formation of European civilization, thereby determining the historical, political, and cultural semantics of the most important processes in the history of Western Europe over the past half millennium. In studying the structures of the French Logos, the author arrives at the conclusion that this Logos’ main components are the two fundamental figures (Gestalts) of the Singer of the Sanctified, Orpheus, and the semi-female dragon, Melusine. According to the author, the paradigm of Modernity, in its mythological and cultural roots, can be traced back to the Gestalt of Melusine.”

Vol. 14: Eastern Europe: The Slavic Logos – Balkan Nav and Sarmatian Style (2018)

(Moscow: Academic Project, 2018)


With this volume starts:

Part IV: Eastern Europe and Russia

"The space of Eastern Europe is a frontier between two civilizations – Western European and Russian. Precisely here ran the border between the nomadic, Indo-European, patriarchal civilizations of Turan and the matriarchal civilizations of Old Europe (which emerged in Anatolia and spread to the Balkans and Southern Europe), between the Catholic (Latin) Celto-Germanic West and the Russian-Orthodox East. The mosaic of this pivot region’s peoples and religions has never in history been geopolitically united, but this does not mean that the peoples of Eastern Europe cannot develop civilizational unity in the future and retrieve a cultural identity founded on the common Eastern European Dasein.

Since the fifth-sixth centuries A.D., the Slavic peoples have played a decisive role in the space of Eastern Europe. This volume of Noomakhia examines the Slavic horizon of Eastern Europe, which the author calls “Great Slaviania.” In question is not a concrete polity, but the inner unity of the Slavic Dasein, language, and ethno-sociological structure, constituted by the predominance of the settled agricultural population and the allogenic superstructure of a ruling warrior elite, the latter being an indirect trace of Sarmatian, Turanian, or Germanic influence. Alexander Dugin believes that, despite the powerful impact exerted on Slavic horizon of Eastern Europe by a number of non-Slavic peoples and powerful civilizational poles – such as Byzantium, Rome, Germany, France, England, Russia, and the Ottoman Empire – the mosaic of the West and South Slavic peoples, being the foci of mixed, self-sufficient cultures, can in the future form a multi-faceted and fully-fledged civilizational unity.“

“In this volume of the epic of Noomakhia: Wars of the Mind, Alexander Dugin studies the oceanic expanses of the islands of Oceania and the Malay ecumene, a zone which might be called the ‘space of the Great Water’, that of ‘Noological’ or ‘Geosophical Oceania.’ Close to this understanding, according to the author, is the concept of ‘Austronesia’, denoting the linguistic unity of the peoples speaking the language family of the same name and inhabiting the islands and archipelagos stretching from Madagascar to Polynesia. As distinct entities belong to this cultural horizon, this book also examines the two insular poles of the Papuans and the Australian Aborigines. All the territories of Austronesia are treated as bearing enormous importance from the standpoint of preserving the inviolability of these unique, ancient cultures, which have preserved keys to the primordial root layers of humanity.”
