Creating a Place to Be

1,469 words

Matthew Crawford
The World Beyond Your Head
New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016

Matthew Crawford is a new but powerful intellectual. His debut in the public sphere began in 2009 with his book Shop Class as Soulcraft, which was affectionately dubbed “Heidegger and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Slate, and positively reviewed by Francis Fukuyama. Crawford’s second polemic, however, is more far-reaching, and stands to supplant his first work as his philosophical masterpiece. Read more …

Men of Janus

2,342 words

We are living in an age of dissolution. Every institution of government and society is in a state of seemingly terminal decline. At the individual level the notions of honor, personal responsibility, and self-sacrifice have largely vanished from public life. The cause of this malaise is not material inequality, but the collapse of faith. Read more …

Yukio Mishima’s The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea

1,416 words

The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea remains imprinted upon the mind long after one has read it. It is one of Mishima’s shorter novels, but its tightly-woven narration heightens the intensity of the atmosphere, simulating a taut bowstring upon readying an arrow.

The novel takes place in Yokohama, Japan’s leading port city, during the American occupation, and unfolds mainly from the perspective of a 13-year-old boy by the name of Noboru Kuroda. Read more …

The Advantage of the Other

In 1683 the troops of the Ottoman Empire marched to the gates of Vienna, in the very heart of Europe. Their intention was clear: sack the city, rape and kill the inhabitants, and use it as a staging base for their expansion into the rest of Christendom. Although the Poles under John III Sobieski saved the day, Read more …

Make Modernity Great Again!

2,975 words

“Wyndham Lewis is a paradoxical figure in all sorts of ways, because you could argue on one trajectory, certainly from a very traditional and perennialist one, that Lewis is actually a part of everything that exists now. He was an ultra-modernist and an arch-modernist. Indeed, he founded the only meaningfully indigenous modernist movement, called Vorticism, in these islands. And yet, Lewis was also an ultra-Right-wing and hierarchical figure. Read more …

Temný rytíř

English original here

Ve své recenzi Nolanova Batman začíná (Batman Begins, 2005) jsem napsal, že film dosahuje dramatického konfliktu navýšením sázek až do krajnosti: zničení moderního světa (ztělesněného Gotham City) tradicionalistickou Ligou stínů vs. jeho zachování a „progresivní“ vylepšení, o něž usiluje Batman.

The American Renaissance Interview

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 …

Μετάφραση Greg Johnson

Μετάφραση στα ελληνικά: Ρωμανός

Δεν ξεχνώ ούτε μια στιγμή τους αγώνες της εποχής μας. Δεν ξεχνώ ούτε μια στιγμή τις μάχες του παρελθόντος που μας έκαναν αυτό που είμασθε. Δεν ξεχνώ ούτε μια στιγμή ότι το να υπάρχεις δεν σημαίνει μόνον να αφιερώνεσαι και να αφοσιώνεσαι , αλλά επίσης, να μάχεσαι. Ούτε ξεχνώ ότι η ζωή έχει έντονες στιγμές και ήρεμες στιγμές, χαρές και στεναχώριες.

D. H. Lawrence on Idealism & Evil

B.J.O. Nordfeldt, "D. H. Lawrence and the Three Fates"

B. J. O. Nordfeldt, “D. H. Lawrence and the Three Fates”

4,086 words

The Origin of Evil

D. H. Lawrence believed in the reality of evil, but he believed that its source lay in the human soul. “Abstraction is the only evil,” he wrote.[1] By abstraction he does not refer to the process of making generalizations or forming concepts. Instead, he means the tendency of human beings to abstract themselves from feeling, from intuition, from nature, and from the present. Abstraction is fundamentally evil, for Lawrence, because it makes most of humanity’s crimes possible.  Read more …
