Abstract

The article considers social and cultural contexts and theoretical orientates needed for the constructing of the Third Reich’s anthropological anti-utopia which are founded both on the irrational conceptualizing of the nation idea and ideology of industrialism. The “new total world view”, which was propagated by national- socialism ideologists and had in its center the race theory including anti-Semitism and mystification of archaic people being, is proposed as an alternative to the processes of rationalization and industrialization. Thereby the principle of automation is transferring to the fields of culture and education of Germans. Their identifying in the “New Germany” which positions itself as an origin of European culturemust be supported by the “race educational state” what certainly defines the parameters for the  Third Reich’s anthropological anti-utopia. The distinctions between British and German patriotism can illustrate on the attitude to national history. The subjectiveexplanations of the double moral as a resource mobilization factor and justification of criminal practices of the national statement are analyzed.
