The Rise of Eurasia: Shaping the New Eurasian Paradigm
The study presents a brief comparative view on the main Eurasian integration projects – Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, Eurasian Economic Union, Greater Eurasia and the Belt and Road Initiative, focusing on their normativity, principles and goals. On the basis of such a comparison, a new paradigm of the international order called the New Eurasian Paradigm (NEP) is formulated. The article introduces a specific Eurasian attitude towards cooperation and integration and shows that there are no fundamental ideological contradictions among the Eurasian integration projects chosen but, at the same time, their successful development requires political will, close cooperation, mutual recognition and understanding and also a change of thinking, an identity reinterpretation and acceptance of Eurasia-orientated perspective and partnership.
Key words: Eurasia, Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, Eurasian Economic Union, Greater Eurasia, Belt and Road Initiative, China, Russia, integration, New Eurasian Paradigm.

«Recalling future»: mythological sense-building for XXI century
Mythological sensebuilding is appreciated here as a smart mindbuilding technology, aimed at world culture renewal, which is urgent for human survival. The image of Daedalus, the famous mythical engineer and aeronaut, is argued to be an ideal pattern of a daring and creative human being, while Ancient Greek culture is treated as a source of basic existential senses. The latter are comprehended as a possible foundation for a universal goal myth, vital for planetary future.
