It is widely considered that the term Eastern Europe is nothing more than a geographical category denoting the eastern part of the European continent. This paper challenges this understanding by uncovering the ideology of the Enlightenment that is embedded in the name Eastern Europe. First, it explores the epistemology that invites us to approach and scrutinise Eastern Europe as the problematic part of the European continent. Secondly, the paper will identify some of the mechanisms that make Eastern Europe particularly suitable for absorbing various ideological discharges. Finally, the paper will illustrate how the epistemology that approaches Eastern Europe as a domain of backwardness is also unreservedly perpetuated in the fantasmatic territory of Eastern Europe.
