The article studies the interpretation of the Faustian theme in the novel “We” by Yevgeny Zamyatin. The conflict between the Apollonian and Dionysian is considered as a mode of the Faustian theme. The features of its development are analyzed at three levels, they are psychological, spatial and philosophical. The interaction of psychological, spatial and philosophical levels makes it possible to implement a number of ideas in the novel, such as a never-ending revolution, a protest against authoritarianism and the enslavement of man by civilization, the impossibility of changing human nature.
