Slovenia, with its unique position between Western and South Eastern Europe, and with its diversified past, has much to offer a historian. In this article we focus on the dichotomy between civil and ethnic nationalism and the traditional linking of those two theoretical variants of nationalism respectively to Western and Eastern Europe. Thanks to the exceptional character of Slovenia, we can modify existing theories about nationalism and approve current scepticism regarding the idea of a dichotomy between Western and Eastern nationalisms. The research will be based on sources of political discourse, such as scientific periodicals, cartoons in newspapers, and political programs of the period 1980-91, in which Slovenia was developing towards democracy.
