Course Content (Syllabus)
The course covers the first decades of the twentieth century, focussing mainly on their intellectual aspects and introducing a comparative perspective. The notions and history of the Far Right and fascism are considered in international context. As regards Greece, the basic nodes of our course are the development of five separate authoritarian currents of thought and of antiparliamentary organisations in the late nineteenth and in the first decades of the twentieth century; the fundamentalist orthodox Extreme Right, the conservative Extreme Right, the fascist Extreme Right, the militarist Extreme Right, and the absolutist Extreme Right; the impact of modern war on political consciousness between 1912 and 1922; the sway of militarism in the interwar years, culminating in the Condylis and Metaxas Dictatorship; and the fascist tendencies of the interwar years, located mainly among the ruling strata.
