    There is no doubt that Turgenev had reformist tendencies; he moved amid the circles of the Russian intelligentsia (Freeborn 1994, 39), which would have in turn born some influence on him. Since the 1860s, however, Turgenev’s work has met with criticism revolving around ideology versus poeticism, and at the center of this argument is Bazarov.

    Unsurprisingly, Touraine’s, Melucci’s, and Castells’ theory of new social movements have been subject to criticism. One main criticism of this approach is on the ‘newness’ of new social movements (Martin, 2015). Many critics have argued that new social movements share some common features with old movements. For example, new social movement approach, according to Calhoun (1994: 22), is ‘historically myopic’ as it lacks recognition of how features of the new movements resemble features of…
