The Four Elements of National Identity in Herodotus

herodotusbust1,033 words

The Western Classical notion of identity comes to us from Herodotus’ Histories, written in the 5th century B.C. It’s from Herodotus that we have the story of the 300 Spartans at Thermopylae, told in the broader context of the entire Hellenic world’s successful resistance of the Persian invasion. In order to do that, the Spartans (Dorians) and Athenians (Ionians) had to overcome their differences and join together to defend what was common to both of them as Greeks.  Read more …

At the Call of a False God

Martin Luther King as a saint.

Martin Luther King as a saint.

2,808 words

Several years ago I was introduced to a man whose head was covered in bandages. I asked him what happened. He explained to me that he had recently had surgery through the Veteran’s Administration to remove fragments from a Soviet-made red phosphorous mortar shell lodged in his skull. The man was too old to have served in Iraq and Afghanistan so I inquired as to where he got such a wound — I expected him to say Vietnam, but instead, he said Zaire. Read more …

René Guénon & Integral Traditionalism

3,008 words

Rene-guenon-1925

René Guénon in 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 …

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. The linear progression of history, from the Stone Age to the prevailing Western liberalism, is a myth. There is no single line of history running through all of humanity. Instead, Cultures are born, they grow to maturity, they age, and they die. Read more …

Dionysus & the “Left-Hand Path”

Antinous as Dionysos-Osiris, 2nd century, Vatican Museum

Antinous as Dionysus-Osiris, 2nd century, Vatican Museum

2,146 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

As outlined in one of Friedrich Nietzsche’s first works, the very suggestive Birth of Tragedy, the concepts of Dionysus and Apollo correspond very little to the meaning these entities had in antiquity, especially their esoteric meaning. Nevertheless, we will use their Nietzschean interpretation as a starting point in this text, in order to define certain fundamental existential orientations.
