Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

3,106 words

English original here

Du XIXe siècle jusqu’aux années 1960 et 1970, les livres de l’Histoire Mondiale reconnaissaient les divers accomplissements de toutes les civilisations dans le monde, mais la plupart des auteurs et des enseignants prenaient comme allant de soi le fait que les Européens méritaient plus d’attention en particulier au vu de leur influence incontestable Read more …

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

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

2,847 words

French translation here

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.

“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 …

Evola & Spengler

Julius_Evola837 words

English version here

“Překládal jsem z němčiny na žádost vydavatele Longanesiho… rozsáhlé a oslavované dílo Oswalda Spenglera Zánik Západu. Poskytlo mi to příležitost v úvodu specifikovat význam i hranice tohoto díla, jež si svého času vydobylo světovou slávu.” Těmito slovy uvádí Julius Evola ve své knize Pouť rumělky (str. 177) řadu kritických odstavců ke Spenglerovi.

John Gast, “Manifest Destiny,” 1872

Gudrun Brangwen, the Modern Woman

Gerald Crich is only one half of Lawrence’s portrait of the “modern individual.” The other half is Gudrun Brangwen. Of course, Birkin and Ursula are modern individuals, though in a different sense. The latter couple are both seeking some fulfilling way to live in, or in spite of, the modern world. Read more …

Interestingly, perhaps the clearest parallels to Gerald Crich’s philosophy of life, and Lawrence’s treatment of it, are two thinkers Lawrence knew nothing about when he wrote Women in Love: Oswald Spengler and Ernst Jünger, both of whom were strongly influenced by Nietzsche.

Alexis Carrel:
A Commemoration, Part 1

3,492 words

Alexis Carrel, 1873–1944

Part 1 of 3

[M]en cannot follow modern civilization along its present course, because they are degenerating. They have been fascinated by the beauty of the sciences of inert matter. They have not understood that their body and consciousness are subjected to natural laws, more obscure than, but as inexorable as, the laws of the sidereal world. Neither have they understood that they cannot transgress these laws without being punished.
