¿Por qué leer a Hegel? Notas sobre el final de la historia

HegelAbsolut4,486 words

English original here

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) ha tenido una tremenda influencia en el mundo moderno, no sólo en la historia de las ideas, sino también en el reino de lo político. ¿Qué tan grande su influencia? Sin Hegel no habría habido Marx; sin Marx, no habría Lenin, Mao, Castro y Pol Pot. Ahora, reflexiona por un momento la diferencia que el Comunismo ha hecho en el mundo moderno, incluso en los países no comunistas, cuyas políticas fueron profundamente motivadas por el deseo de derrotar al Comunismo.  Read more …

Γιατί να διαβάζ˙ουμε Χέγκελ;

HegelAbsolut4,494 words

English original here

Μετάφραση Α.Γ

Ο Γκέοργκ Βίλχελμ Φρίντριχ Χέγκελ (Georg Willhelm Friedrich Hegel, 1770-1831) άσκησε τεράστια επίδραση στο σύγχρονο κόσμο, όχι μόνο στην ιστορία των ιδεών αλλά και στο πεδίο της πολιτικής. Πόσο μεγάλη επίδραση; Χωρίς τον Χέγκελ δεν θα υπήρχε ο Μαρξ˙ χωρίς τον Μαρξ δεν θα υπήρχε ο Λένιν, ούτε ο Μάο, ο Κάστρο, ούτε ο Πολ Ποτ. Read more …

Why Read Hegel?
Notes on the “End of History”

HegelAbsolut4,295 words

Translations: Greek, Spanish

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) has had a tremendous influence on the modern world, not only in the history of ideas, but in the political realm as well. How big an influence? Without Hegel, there would have been no Marx; without Marx, no Lenin, no Mao, no Castro, no Pol Pot. Now, reflect just a moment on the difference the Communism has made in the modern world, even in non-Communist countries, whose policies were deeply motivated by the desire to defeat Communism.  Read more …

Pensamientos sobre la educación liberal


Hendrick ter Brugghen, Heraclito, 1628

2,730 words

English original here

Nota del editor:

Este es el texto de una charla que di el 15 de agosto de 1996, a una clase de educación adulta que yo llevaba adelante en Atlanta hace tiempo cuando estaba estudiando. Recuerdo que la lección original era más extensa, incluyendo discusiones sobre Rousseau, Kant, Schiller, y Hegel. Si aparece una cinta, la doblaré y pondré a disposición.  Read more …

Why We Meet as We Do:
Thoughts on Liberal Education


Hendrick ter Brugghen, Heraclitus, 1628

2,731 words

Spanish translation here

Editor’s Note:

This is the text of a talk that I gave on August 15, 1996 to an adult education class that I used to run in Atlanta, way back when I was in graduate school. I recall that the actual lecture was much longer and involved discussions of Rousseau, Kant, Schiller, and Hegel. If a tape comes to light, I will dub it and make it available.

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.

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 …
