Caesar Without Gods:
Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy

Trilogy2,923 words

Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises) begins with the evocation of fear which becomes the motivational impulse for Bruce Wayne’s story. As a child he accidentally falls down a disused well, and, whilst he lies trapped and injured, he is terrified by a flock of bats that appear like a chthonic force of nature from the bowels of the earth.

Oswald Spengler & the Controversy of Caesarism

Augustus1,807 words

There has long been a commonplace notion in journalism (now often repeated in blogs and social media), that Oswald Spengler declared us to be at the end of Civilization. After all, he did write The Decline of the West, didn’t he? Furthermore, Spengler’s end-phase of Civilization is Caesarism, Read more …

Spengler:
The Numinous Genesis of Culture

6,156 words

Oswald Spengler’s radical contribution to the philosophy of history was to observe that different Cultures and Civilizations are discrete life forms and that they all have a certain life-expectancy. The linear progression of history, from the Stone Age to the prevailing Western liberalism, is a myth. There is no single line of history running through all of humanity.

Oswald Spengler

188 words

He said that mathematics was an art
and won my heart;
that cultures die; the sign of death, a Caesar—
O, what a teaser!—

and once they’re dead, stay dead. No one’s at home
in Ancient Rome,
that took grand Greece with it. And how divine a
pattern for China?  Read more …

Політичні погляди Г. Ф. Лавкрафта

2,417 words

English original here

З точки зору багатьох своїх шанувальників, найстрашніші речі Г. Ф. Лавкрафт писав не про Ктулху, а про політику. Втім, я б хотів показати, що політичні погляди цього майстра химерного, ірраціонального, метафізичного жаху цілком базуються на реальності та розумі.  Read more …

La Cuestión de la Raza en Spengler y su Significado para el Racialismo Contemporáneo

Michael Kunze, Oswald Spengler

Michael Kunze, Oswald Spengler

3,440 words

Traducción por A. Garrido. Enlace original aquí

Introducción

Es una tradición en Counter-Currents recordar al gran filósofo de la historia alemán, Oswald Spengler, en el aniversario de su nacimiento, 29 de Mayo. Este año, me gustaría tomarme el tiempo de reflexionar críticamente sobre los puntos de vistas de Spengler sobre la raza dentro de su obra maestra La Decadencia de Occidente (1912-22), y, en particular debatir sobre la importancia que estas ideas sostienen para los racialistas y etno-nacionalistas de los tiempos modernos.  Read more …
