Subliminal Influences

2,924 words

TVTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

We have already had the occasion to point to the illusoriness of the claim that modern man, in general, has achieved an autonomy and self-consciousness he previously lacked. This illusion can in part be explained by the fact that attention today is primarily directed towards external conditions, to the disappearance of certain material limits to the freedom of the individual — 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.

Instead, Cultures are born, they grow to maturity, they age, and they die. Read more …

¿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 …
