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

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

2,844 words

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 …

French translation here

Lecture delivered at the IV Encontro Internacional Evoliano, Sao Paulo, Brazil, September 10, 2014.

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 …
