Portrait-of-a-Young-Man-in-a-Top-Hat4,384 words

English original: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

Antes de entrar no assunto principal, eu gostaria de fazer três observações preliminares:

Eu hesitei em aceitar seu convite para falar sobre a figura do dândi, pois esse tipo de questão não é meu tema principal de interesse.

Eu finalmente aceitei porque redescobri um ensaio lúcido e magistral de Otto Mann, Read more …

Remembering René Guénon:
November 15, 1886 to January 7, 1951

Rene-guenon-1925286 words

René Guénon was born on this day in 1886. Along with Julius Evola, Guénon was one of the leading figures in the Traditionalist school, which has deeply influenced my own outlook and the metapolitical mission and editorial agenda of Counter-Currents Publishing and North American New Right.

Living in Accordance with Our Tradition

vennerstudy1,162 words

Translated by Giuliano Adriano Malvicini

Every great people owns a primordial tradition that is different from all the others. It is the past and the future, the world of the depths, the bedrock that supports, the source from which one may draw as one sees fit. It is the stable axis at the center of the turning wheel of change. As Hannah Arendt put it, it is the “authority that chooses and names, transmits and conserves, indicates where the treasures are to be found and what their value is.”  Read more …

Translated by R. G. Fowler

“Time, Space and Number
Fell from the black firmament,
Into the still and sombre sea.
Shroud of silence and shade,
The night erases absolutely

Tito Perdue’s Morning Crafts

perdue-morningcrafts1,943 words

Tito Perdue
Morning Crafts
London: Arktos, 2012

At the end of After Virtue, Alasdair MacIntyre concludes that modern civilization is bankrupt, and modern intellectual and political traditions are incapable of understanding and rectifying this decadence. He does not, however, counsel generalized pessismism, for once modernity expires of its own corruptions a new age will begin. Read more …

Mircea Eliade, Carl Schmitt, & René Guénon

portugaljournal1,399 words

Mircea Eliade’s The Portugal Journal, trans. Mac Linscott Ricketts (Albany, N.Y.: SUNY Press, 2010) covers the years 1941 to 1945 when Eliade was a Romanian diplomat in Portugal. It is thus a prequel to Eliade’s four-volume Journal (Vol. 1: 1945–1955, Vol. 2: 1957–1969, Vol. 3: 1970–1978, and Vol. 4: 1979–1985), which begins with his arrival in Paris in September of 1945 and continues for the rest of his life.

Batman Begins

Batman_begins1,359 mots

English original here

Après avoir été bluffé par l’Inception de Christopher Nolan, j’ai décidé de donner à son Batman Begins (2005) une nouvelle chance. La première fois que j’ai vu ce film, je ne l’ai pas aimé. Pas un seul instant. J’ai dû être distrait, car cette fois je l’ai apprécié. Nolan rompt avec le style kitsch des premiers films de Batman, se concentrant sur l’évolution et les motivations du personnage, Read more …
