Suddenly, I Love the French

1,570 words

A few years ago, a friend of mine spent a summer in the south of France with his daughter, who was in grade school at the time. Unfortunately, the daughter caught a bug toward the end of their stay, and my friend made multiple trips to the local pharmacy trying to find the right medicine for her. His French is imperfect, so he struggled to make himself understood by the druggist. 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 …

President de Gaulle: The Illusions of Grandeur

The Fourth Republic, widely considered just as indecisive and decadent as the previous parliamentary regime, was incapable of maintaining the empire. In Indochina, a long war of attrition was waged, the politicians not having the will to send draftees, preserving the public from this hardship.  Read more …

Salvador Dalí, Book Transforming Itself Into a Nude Woman

English original here

G. W. F. Hegel y su intérprete Alexandre Kojève afirman que la esencia de la conciencia es “negatividad”, que el hombre vive “por fuera de sí mismo”, que el hombre “niega” su naturaleza o es de naturaleza “nihilista”, que el hombre es la “nada” o un “agujero en el ser”, que el hombre es “tiempo que niega espacio”. ¿Qué significa esto?  Read more …

A Hole in Being:
Notes on Negativity

Salvador Dalí, Book Transforming Itself Into a Nude Woman

1,261 words

Spanish translation here

G. W. F. Hegel and his able interpreter Alexandre Kojève claim that the essence of consciousness is “negativity,” that man lives “outside himself,” that man “negates” or “nihilates” nature, that man is a “nothingness” or a “hole in being,” that man is “time that negates space.” What does this mean?

A talk by Adrian Davies to the Traditional Britain Group on October 18th, 2014

This morning I shall talk to you about differing perspectives upon the involvement of artists and writers in politics in France and England. Why France and England? Partly because it is necessary to keep this talk in some bounds, partly because I know a little more about the relationship between high culture and low politics in France than in Germany or Italy or Spain, and will stick to what I know, often a prudent course.  Read more …

The Right to One’s Own Life in East & West

Peter Paul Rubens, "The Death of Seneca," c. 1615, Museo del Prado, Madrid

Peter Paul Rubens, “The Death of Seneca,” c. 1615, Museo del Prado, Madrid

3,577 words

Translation anonymous, ed. Greg Johnson

In these short notes I shall not attempt to deal with the question of the right to life in general, but with the right to one’s own life, which corresponds to the ancient formula of jus vitae necisque; it is the right to accept human existence or to put an end to it voluntarily. I intend to compare certain characteristic points of view which have been formulated in this connection in the East and in the West. However, the problem will not be considered from a social point of view, but rather from an interior spiritual one, whence it appears in the shape of a problem of responsibility only to our own selves.

1. O Problema

Nós temos “livre-arbítrio”? Certamente isso me parece que eu livremente escolho o que eu faço em vida, com respeito a coisas tanto maiores quanto menores. Minha decisão de graduar no colégio, por exemplo, certamente parece ter sido feito livremente, sem nenhuma coerção de outros. Read more …

Are We Free?

Norns by J. L. Lund (1777-1867)

1. The Problem

Do we have “free will”? It certainly seems to me that I freely choose what I do in life, with respect to things both major and minor. My decision to go to graduate school, for example, certainly seems to have been one that I made freely, without anyone or anything coercing me. Read more …

Le primordial et l’eternel :
La Tradition dans la pensée de Martin Heidegger et de Julius Evola

Martin Heidegger

8,727 words

L’opposé de la tradition, dit l’historien Dominique Venner, n’est pas la modernité, une notion illusoire, mais le nihilisme [1]. D’après Nietzsche, qui développa le concept, le nihilisme vient avec la mort des dieux et « la répudiation radicale de [toute] valeur, sens et désirabilité » [2]. Read more …
