Albion’s Hidden Numina
Peter Shaffer’s Equus

Uffington-White-Horse-sat

The Uffington White Horse, Oxfordshire

2,486 words

Peter Shaffer’s 1973 play, Equus, is arguably the most pagan work of art created in the 20th century. Ostensibly an extended dialogue between a mentally ill boy and his psychiatrist, Shaffer’s play goes far beyond the realms of psychoanalysis and begins to stir the surface of an incipient numinous awakening.

3,106 words

English original here

Du XIXe siècle jusqu’aux années 1960 et 1970, les livres de l’Histoire Mondiale reconnaissaient les divers accomplissements de toutes les civilisations dans le monde, mais la plupart des auteurs et des enseignants prenaient comme allant de soi le fait que les Européens méritaient plus d’attention en particulier au vu de leur influence incontestable Read more …

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 …

Archäofuturistische Fiktion 
Frank Herberts Dune

1,248 words

DuneFirstEditionEnglish original here

Wenn Science-Fiction typischerweise „progressiv“ und Fantasy-Literatur „rückwärtsgewandt“ ist, dann brauchen wir eine dritte Kategorie für die sechs Dune-Bücher von Frank Herbert (1920-1986) – gar nicht zu reden von George Lucas’ sechs Star Wars-Filmen –, die futuristische Sci-Fi-Elemente mit den archaischen Werten und magischen Welten der Fantasy verbinden.

Karl Jaspers, the Axial Age, & a Common History for Humanity

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

2,847 words

French translation here

From the nineteenth century through the 1960s and ’70s, World History books did recognize the varying accomplishments of all civilizations in the world, but most authors and teachers took for granted the fact that Europeans deserved more attention particularly in view of their irrefutable influence on the rest of the world after their discovery of the Americas, development of modern science and global spread of modern technology.

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 …
