Archeofuturist Fiction
Frank Herbert’s Dune, Part 1

DuneFirstEdition1,588 words

Part 1 of 2

If science fiction is quintessentially “progressive” and fantasy literature is “reactionary,” then we need a third category for the six Dune books by Frank Herbert (1920–1986)—not to mention George Lucas’ six Star Wars movies—which combine futuristic, sci-fi elements with the archaic values and magical universes of fantasy.

Fortunately, French New Right theorist Guillaume Faye has already coined the perfect term for this genre: archeofuturism, Read more …

“We Are at the End of Something”:
The American Renaissance Interview

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA3,715 words

American Renaissance: You have said that modernity is the enemy of identity. Could you explain this idea further?

Alain de Benoist: When one considers modernity, one must consider two meanings of the word. The first is known to everyone: It is the changes of life that come with more material wealth. But modernity is also the product of an ideology that appeared in the 17th and 18th century with the Enlightenment. Read more …

Thoughts Personal and Superpersonal (Excerpt)

Jean Delville, "Prometheus," 1907

Jean Delville, “Prometheus,” 1907

2,005 words

Edited by Kerry Bolton

No European can ever know the price, quality, and intensity of the love which a colonial brings to the history and the works of the Western culture. No matter how sensitive he is by nature, no matter how high the cultural-historical focus to which he contain and hold, the European—and I have in mind such beings as Goethe, Fichte, Carlyle, and Leonardo—must of necessity take many things for granted.

Not only concepts, but feelings also, form themselves by polarity. Read more …

Aspects of Racial Doctrine

1,845 words

Giambattista Vico

Giambattista Vico

Editor’s Note:

In this text, Evola distinguishes the race of the body (biological race–race as such, in my opinion), the race of the soul (which I would call non-hereditary character types, shaped by culture, ideas, and education), and race of the spirit, which has to do with “vertical,” “superhistorical” heredity, i.e., man’s alleged descent from superhuman or divine beings. It is unfortunate that Evola speaks disparagingly of evolution as a “myth” — only to replace it with genuine myths Read more …

Edited by Kerry Bolton

Roman masks, Baths of Decius, Rome, 2nd century CE

Roman masks, Baths of Decius, Rome, 2nd century CE

Editor’s Note:

With the 1953 notes on “Culture,” Yockey develops a theme that repudiates rationalism, positivism, and other such 19th-century materialistic philosophies, presenting the post-rationalist era of History as the unfolding of a great drama that is beyond rational or scientific interpretation, Read more …
