Walterville, Or.: Trine Day, 2016

Zootopia:
Persecution and the Art of Screenwriting

Zootopia23,510 words

Leo Strauss, in his 1952 book, Persecution and the Art of Writing, argues that great writers tend to write with multiple levels of meaning. Often writers have an exoteric message to avoid displeasing the king, censors, or fashion of the times. At the same time, they maintain an esoteric message concealed within irony, paradoxes, and even deliberate self-contradiction.  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 …

Schopenhauer & Hitler, Part 3
Genius, Religion, & Compassion

Young Arthur Schopenhauer

Young Arthur Schopenhauer

1,950 words

Part 3 of 3

Schopenhauer on Genius

In contrast with the mediocre majority of mankind, there is the rare genius. Schopenhauer’s ruminations on the tragic loneliness of the genius, no doubt in part autobiographical, are some of the most touching and the most consoling. There is reason to think Hitler sympathized with and perhaps attempted to live up to the model of the Schopenhauerian genius. Read more …

Notes sur Moïse l’Egyptien, Partie 2

John Spencer

John Spencer

English original here

Note de l’Auteur :

A cause des réponses positives – online tout comme offline – à ma première série de notes, j’ai décidé de continuer les séries jusqu’à ce que j’aie terminé Moïse l’Egyptien. Ensuite nous discuterons les livres ultérieurs d’Assmann : The Price of Monotheism, Of God and Gods: Egypt, Israel, and the Rise of Monotheism, Religio Duplex: How the Enlightenment Reinvented Egyptian Religion, et le livre à paraître From Akhenaten to Moses: Ancient Egypt and Religious Change. J’ai décidé de nommer ce projet le Assmann Seminar, bien que dans le futur j’étendrais peut-être cette étude pour traiter d’autres auteurs liés à ce sujet.

Introduction to Plato’s Republic, Part 2

3,160 words

lightincavePart 2 of 2

Author’s Note:

The following text is based on a transcript by V. S. of a lecture on Plato’s Republic. As usual, I have edited his transcript to remove excessive wordiness and corrected a couple of small mistakes.  

Plato writes in his Seventh Letter that he never set forth his own philosophy in any of his writings. That’s a pretty extraordinary statement for one of our greatest philosophers to make. Read more …

Les Commandements de Gôt de Karl Maria Wiligut

Karl Maria Wiligut, 1866–1946

Flowers publient The Secret King: Karl Maria Wiligut, Himmler’s Lord of the Runes en 2001[1]. Read more …

Mr. Gurdjieff

1,525 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Czech translation here

Individuals who help us put a finger on the disturbing way in which the existence of the great majority of people has been, metaphysically speaking, degraded, are rare in our times and run the risk of being confused with charlatans.

French Visions for a New Europe

Salvador Dalí, "The Ascension of Christ," 1958

3,747 words

Raymond Abellio claimed that the Flemish occultist S. U. Zanne (pseudonym of Auguste Van de Kerckhove) was amongst the greatest initiates of our time. But hardly anyone knows who he is. Some have placed Abellio in the same category — though he too is a great unknown for most. And those that have looked at Abellio, have largely concluded that he was a fascist politician, who was also interested in esoteric beliefs.
