Edited by K. Deva
Manticore, 2015

Oswald Spengler & the Faustian Soul of the West, Part 1

3,526 words

Faust im Studierzimmer Georg Friedrich Kersting

Georg Friedrich Kersting, “Faust in his Study”

Part 1 of 2

If I had to choose one word to identify the uniqueness of the West it would be “Faustian.” This is the word Oswald Spengler used to designate the “soul” of the West. He believed that Western civilization was driven by an unusually dynamic and expansive psyche. The “prime-symbol” of this Faustian soul was “pure and limitless space.” This soul had a “tendency towards the infinite,” a tendency most acutely expressed in modern mathematics.  Read more …

Herodotus

2,257 words

In The Histories, the Greek historian Herodotus relates an account of a conflict between (Greek) Athenians and a group identified as “Pelasgians.” The story encodes ideas of racial/cultural difference, expulsion, miscegenation, mass murder, and, especially, racial (genetic) dominance that are still relevant today.

The story is related in Book Six, §§6.137–6.140. At some unknown date prior to Herodotus’ time, but still remembered, the Athenians expelled the Pelasgians from Attica, Read more …

Réflexions sur la répudiation de la dette

Merry-Joseph Blondel, 1781–1853, « Solon, Législateur d’Athènes »

English original here

Dans l’ancienne Athènes, les débiteurs qui étaient incapables de payer leurs créditeurs perdaient leur terre et étaient réduits à l’état de serfs qui devaient donner à leur propriétaire terrien un sixième de leur production, à perpétuité.
