Notes sur le nihilisme

3,263 words

English original here

The Gnostic NihilistOn dit souvent que le nihilisme est l’une des principales caractéristiques de l’âge moderne, mais qu’est-ce que le nihilisme ? Le nihilisme signifie quelque chose comme la « mort » de Dieu, la négation du sens et de la valeur objectifs, l’effacement des distinctions morales et des hiérarchies, la dissolution d’un monde commun en perspectives individuelles, et la dissolution d’une culture commune en « préférences données » subjectives.  Read more …

3. “The corrupt vigour of fascism.”

In early 1958, Time magazine ran a humorous squib titled “Sloane Square Stomp.”[9] It told how Colin Wilson (and presumably Bill) had attended a premiere of their friend Stuart Holroyd’s new play at the Royal Court Theatre. Bill and Colin’s onetime friend Christopher Logue stood up in the stalls with Kenneth Tynan, denouncing Holroyd and Wilson as fascists. During the interval, this led to a shoving match in a nearby bar. The whole thing was a tempest in a teapot, Read more …

Notas sobre el Nihilismo

3,318 words

English original here

The Gnostic Nihilist

Frecuentemente se dice que el nihilismo es una de las características de la era moderna pero, ¿qué es el nihilismo? El nihilismo significa algo así como la “muerte” de Dios, la negación del valor y del significado objetivo, la borradura de las distinciones morales y jerárquicas, la disolución de un mundo común a las perspectivas individuales, y la disolución de una cultura común a las “preferencias dadas” subjetivas.  Read more …

The Gnostic NihilistIt is often said that nihilism is one of the leading characteristics of the modern age, but what is nihilism? Nihilism means something like the “death” of God, the denial of objective meaning and value, the erasure of moral distinctions and hierarchies, the dissolution of a common world into individual perspectives, and the dissolution of a common culture into subjective “given preferences.”  Read more …

La Segunda Venida Pagana de Yeats

1,808 words

English original here

Luc Olivier Merson, Rest on the Flight into Egypt, 1879

Luc Olivier Merson, Descanso en el viaje a Egipto, 1879

William Butler Yeats escribió su famoso poema, “La Segunda Venida”, en 1919, al mismo tiempo que ocurría la Gran Guerra y la Revolución Bolchevique, cuando las cosas realmente estaban “derrumbándose”,  principalmente la civilización Europea. El título refiere, por supuesto, a la segunda llegada, segundo advenimiento, o segunda venida de Cristo. Pero a medida que la leo, el poema rechaza la idea de tal acontecimiento de forma literal. En su lugar, afirma dos sentidos no-cristianos de la segunda venida. Primero, hay un sentido metafórico del fin del presente mundo y la revelación de algo radicalmente nuevo. Segundo, hay un sentido de una segunda venida pero no de Cristo, sino del paganismo desplazado por el cristianismo. Read more …
