Sociocultural Analysis of Conspiracy Discourse
(based on Sergei Goryainov’s “Battles of Diamond Barons”)
(Part 1)

Abstract. The article analyzes Sergei Goryainov’s “Battles of Diamond Barons”. The author outlines the main postulates: price is not determined by supply and demand ratio, but by conscious management and regulation; it’s raw material price that determines basic economic processes and global markets related to them, with its being a resource which can be planned and created; raw materials price is managed by clubs and elite belonging to Anglo-Saxon culture, but not by government, etc. The article focuses on the evidential basis of Goryainov’s concept, arguing that his interpretations are vulnerable and can be misunderstood as counterexamples. To reveal the basis of the concept the author is reconstructing Goryainov’s values and personality traits, comparing them with his own world outlook and that of his teacher, famous Russian philosopher G. Shedrovitsky. For this purpose, comparative analysis, methodological problamatization, situational analysis, reconstruction and interpretation of Goryainov’s ideas were used as a methodology. This allowed to criticize Goryainov’s theory and define reasons for failure of such concepts.

Key words: culture, interpretation, theory, concept, conspiracy theory, facts, personality, values, criticism, elite, sociality.
