Julius Evola: A Philosopher at War

EvolaAtWar1,462 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

Interviewer: The publishing house Murcia has just released a new book by Gianfranco de Turris: Julius Evola: A Philosopher at War. The subtitle, 1943-1945, should get the attention of readers of the Roman thinker, it being the most mysterious period of his life, of which he spoke the least, with the most gaps from a biographical point of view. Now, at long last, this essay reveals what Evola did during those years: his journeys in Italy and Europe, his stay at Hitler’s Headquarters, Read more …

Remembering Carl Schmitt:
July 11, 1888–April 7, 1985

SchmittKoenen894 words

Carl Schmitt was born on July 11, 1888 in Plettenberg, Westphalia, Germany — where he died on April 7, 1985, at the age of 96. The son of a Roman Catholic small businessman, Carl Schmitt studied law in Berlin, Munich, and Strasbourg, graduating and taking his state exams in Strasbourg in 1915. In 1916, he earned his habilitation in Strasbourg, qualifying him to be a law professor. He taught at business schools and universities in Munich, Greifswald, Bonn, Berlin, and Cologne.

Objectivist Zen
Or: If You Meet Ayn Rand on the Road, Kill Her

SmurfHat2,641 words

I discovered Ayn Rand when I was 20 years old and a college student (as prescribed by Scripture). I was living at home and tagged along one day when my mother went to the public library to return some books. There I loafed around, waiting for my mother to finish her usual gratuitous chat with the librarians, when suddenly it caught my eye: a paperback copy of The Fountainhead nestling innocently in one of those tall metal racks that spin around.

The Ancient Greeks:
Our Fashy Forefathers

WarriorStele1,707 words

Nigel Rodgers
The Complete Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece
Lorenz Books, 2014

“Western civilization” is certainly not fashionable in mainstream academia these days. Nonetheless, the ancient Greek and Roman heritage remains quietly revered in the more thoughtful and earnest circles. Quite simply, virtually all of our social and political organization, to the extent these are thought out, ultimately go back to Greek forms, Read more …

René Guénon & Integral Traditionalism

3,008 words

Rene-guenon-1925

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

Elsewhere (in La Destra, in May 1972), we have discussed the necessary relationship of an authentic, non-makeshift Right with the concept of Tradition. In the sense discussed there, references to authors with a traditional orientation may be useful in dealing with certain complex problems. Here, however, we wish to provide an account of the ideas of René Guénon (1886-1951), who was regarded as the proponent of “integral Traditionalism.”  Read more …

The Value of Truth & the Virtue of Honesty

Christ as warrior holding book that proclaims "I am the way, truth and life"

Christ as warrior holding book that proclaims “I am the way, truth and life”

1,962 words

“Even apart from the value of such claims as ‘there is a categorical imperative in us,’ one can still always ask: what does such a claim tell us about the man who makes it?” — Nietzsche (Beyond Good and Evil, Section 187)

I have been reflecting of late on the concept of truth, both as a philosophical concept and as a value. Growing up, I always took the notion of truth completely for granted. Read more …
