Remembering René Guénon:
November 15, 1886 to January 7, 1951

265 words

René Guénon was born on this day in 1886. Along with Julius Evola, Guénon was one of the leading figures in the Traditionalist school, which has deeply influenced my own outlook and the metapolitical mission and editorial agenda of Counter-Currents Publishing and North American New Right.

In commemoration of his birth, I wish to draw your attention to the following works on this website. Read more …

The Kali Yuga:
René Guénon’s Critique of Modernity
