Soldier, Worker, Rebel, Anarch:
Types & Figures in Jünger’s Writings

Jünger 4,457 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Greek translation here

In Jünger’s writings, four great Figures appear successively, each corresponding to a quite distinct period of the author’s life. They are, chronologically, the Front Soldier, the Worker, the Rebel, and the Anarch. Through these Figures one can divine the passionate interest Jünger has always held toward the world of forms.

Gudrun Brangwen, the Modern Woman

Gerald Crich is only one half of Lawrence’s portrait of the “modern individual.” The other half is Gudrun Brangwen. Of course, Birkin and Ursula are modern individuals, though in a different sense. The latter couple are both seeking some fulfilling way to live in, or in spite of, the modern world. Read more …

Interestingly, perhaps the clearest parallels to Gerald Crich’s philosophy of life, and Lawrence’s treatment of it, are two thinkers Lawrence knew nothing about when he wrote Women in Love: Oswald Spengler and Ernst Jünger, both of whom were strongly influenced by Nietzsche.

Right-Wing Anarchism

Louis-Ferdinand Céline, 1984–1961

789 words

Translations Czech, Spanish

The concept of right-wing anarchism seems paradoxical, indeed oxymoronic, starting from the assumption that all “right-wing” political viewpoints include a particularly high evaluation of the principle of order. . . . In fact right-wing anarchism occurs only in exceptional circumstances, when the hitherto veiled affinity between anarchism and conservatism may become apparent.

Ernst Jünger & the French New Right

Arno Breker’s portrait of Ernst Jünger

2,828 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

The New Right obviously did not have to introduce Ernst Jünger’s name in France. When the New Right appeared at the end of the 1960s, the author of On the Marble Cliffs was already well-known to the French public. Indeed, Jünger was surely the German writer most famous and most read on this side of the Rhine. This situation, which always astonishes the Germans, is explained multiple ways.

Jünger & Drieu La Rochelle

Alain de Benoist

3,655 words

In his Pariser Tagebücher [Paris Diaries], Ernst Jünger refers to his meetings in German-occupied Paris with Pierre Drieu La Rochelle (for example on October 11th, 1941 and on April 7th, 1942). Drieu was then the editor in chief of La Nouvelle Revue française, published by Gallimard. Read more …

East & West–The Gordian Knot:
Ernst Jünger’s Der gordische Knoten

3,155 words

The name of Ernst Jünger has achieved an almost European notoriety. However the importance of this writer as a philosopher concerns above all the early period of his activities. An ex-serviceman in the First World War, he appeared as a spokesman of what in his day was already known as the “burnt out generation.” Read more …

Jünger, Heidegger, & Nihilism

Alain de Benoist

3,840 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Ernst Jünger and Martin Heidegger engaged in a dialogue on nihilism in two texts published five years apart in the 1950s on the occasions of their respective sixtieth birthdays.[1] The study and comparison of these texts is particularly interesting because they allow us to appreciate what, on this fundamental subject, separates two authors who are frequently compared to each other and who maintained a powerful intellectual relationship for several decades. What follows is a brief overview.

Another European Destiny:
Dominique Venner’s Ernst Jünger: Un autre destin européen

Dominique Venner
Ernst Jünger: Un autre destin européen
Paris: Éds. du Rocher, 2009

In Dominique Venner’s historical essay, Ernst Jünger: Un autre destin européen, the subject is presented as une figure ultime, a European archetype provisionally absent from Europe today, but nevertheless one rooted in the depths of the European spirit — and destined, thus, to re-appear should Europeans ever re-awake to re-assert themselves in the world.
