Heiegger+Cover+Web3,065 words

Alexander Dugin
Martin Heidegger: The Philosophy of Another Beginning
Ed. and trans. Nina Kouprianova
Preface by Paul E. Gottfried
Whitefish, Mt.: Radix, 2014

Martin Heidegger is one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. So it should come as no surprise that Heidegger, a life-long man of the Right, is also an important thinker for the New Right in Europe and North America.

The Revolutionary Conservative Critique of Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

2,727 words

Oswald Spengler is by now well-known as one of the major thinkers of the German Conservative Revolution of the early 20th Century. In fact, he is frequently cited as having been one of the most determining intellectual influences on German Conservatism of the interwar period – along with Arthur Moeller van den Bruck and Ernst Jünger – to the point where his cultural pessimist philosophy is seen to be representative of Revolutionary Conservative views in general (although in reality most Revolutionary Conservatives held more optimistic views).[1]  Read more …

Leo Strauss, the Conservative Revolution, & National Socialism, Part 3

3,373 words

Part 3 of 4

Editor’s Note: 

Leo Strauss

Leo Strauss

In the previous installment of this series, I examined Leo Strauss’s argument that the roots of what he called “German nihilism” — including National Socialism — were not nihilistic. Instead, it is rooted in a moral critique of the modern world. In this installment, I examine his argument that these non-nihilistic motives gave rise to nihilism because of certain contingent historical circumstances.  Read more …

Othmar Spann:
A Catholic Radical Traditionalist

Othmar Spann, October 1, 1878–July 8, 1950

Othmar Spann, October 1, 1878–July 8, 1950

4,964 words

Othmar Spann was an Austrian philosopher who was a key influence on German conservative and traditionalist thought in the period after World War I, and he is thus considered a representative of the intellectual movement known as the “Conservative Revolution.” Spann was a professor of economics and sociology at the University of Vienna, where he taught not only scientific social and economic theories, but also influenced many students with the presentation of his worldview in his lectures.

Part 2 of 4

Editor’s Note: 

The second installment of this essay was delayed because I had to acquire, read, and digest a major new book before I could move forward: William F. Altman’s The German Stranger: Leo Strauss and National Socialism (Lanham, Maryland: Lexington Books, 2012), which argues that Strauss was indeed a kind of “Nazi” Jew Read more …

Hans Freyer:
The Quest for Collective Meaning

freyer1crop

Hans Freyer, 1887–1969

4,043 words

Hans Freyer was an influential German sociologist who lived during the early half of the 20th century and is associated not only with his role in the development of sociology in German academia but also with the “Far Right.” Freyer was part of the intellectual trend known in Germany during the 1920s and 30s as the Conservative Revolution, and had also worked in universities under the Third Reich government for much of its reign, although it should be clear that Freyer was never an “orthodox” National Socialist.[1] Read more …

Leo Strauss, the Conservative Revolution, & National Socialism, Part 1

LeoStrauss32,992 words

Part 1 of 4

“What [Walter Moses] calls ‘political’ is the political in the ancient sense of the word, rather than in the modern sense that is relevant for us. What is hidden behind this absolute negation of the sphere of the ‘private’ is not a modern Leviathan, but rather its pagan-fascist counterpart . . .”

—Leo Strauss, 1923[1]

Arthur Moeller van den Bruck:
The Man & His Thought

Arthur Moeller van den Bruck, April 23, 1876–May 30, 1925

4,461 words

Arthur Moeller van den Bruck was one of the most important, perhaps even the single most important, figure of what is known as the “Conservative Revolution” in early 20th century Germany. His influence on conservative German thought, despite its limitations, is deep and lasting, carrying on even into the present day. Indeed there may be some truth to the mystical declaration made by his wife: “In trying to account for the question who was Moeller van den Bruck, you are really addressing a question to Germany’s destiny.”[1] Read more …
