In 2005, Alain de Benoist gave an interview to The Occidental Quarterly, which was published as Bryan Sylvain, “European Son: An Interview with Alain de Benoist,” The Occidental Quarterly, vol. 5, no. 3 (Fall 2005): 7–21.
E. O. Wilson’s Sociobiology and Raymond Cattell’s A New Morality from Science: Beyondism were first published in the 1970s, although both writers were developing these ideas for many years before.
Wilson was a better writer, and arguably a better scientist, but Cattell had more creative courage. Cattell believed that a religion could be developed from science, which eventually became “Beyondism.”
