This article presents critical comments and responses to the essay “Ethnos PostMortem: Soviet Theories of Ethnos in Present Day Russian-Language Discourses” [Etnos post-mortem: sovetskie teorii etnosa v sovremennom russkoiazychnom diskurse] by Dmitry Verkhovtsev, in which the author ponders over the use and misuse of the notion of ethnos in Russian academic and non-academic milieus during the last three decades, pointing to the striking fact that, despite the critique within the anthropological community, this notion has been simultaneously and steadily gaining weight and influence outside it. This discussion features contributions by Sergei Alymov, Lev Perepelkin, Sergei Sokolovskiy, Valery Tishkov, and Viktor Shnirelman.
