Georges Dumézil

1,362 words

Author’s Note:

This essay was originally written almost exactly thirteen years ago. I have withheld it from publication for all these years, because I considered the ideas in it a bit too speculative and daring.  Read more …

Heidegger on Nietzsche, Metaphysics, & Nihilism

bythesea3,298 words

Spanish translation here

One of Heidegger’s most striking claims is that modern nihilism is the consummation of Western metaphysics. Generally, people think of nihilism and metaphysics as polar opposites. Nihilism is associated with the dissolution of an objective world into subjective impressions, the transformation of objective values into subjective preferences, the loss of shared meanings and a common frame of reference. Traditionally, metaphysics upholds the objectivity of reality, knowledge, and values. Read more …

La pertinence de la philosophie pour le changement politique

socrates23,898 words

English original here

Le titre de cet essai est quelque peu trompeur, puisque je vais arguer que la philosophie est pertinente pour tous les efforts humains, pas seulement la politique [1]. La philosophie n’est pas seulement métapolitique, mais méta-tout [2]. Mais je sais que vous vous intéressez au changement politique, donc c’était mon hameçon pour vous faire lire. Read more …

Pulp Fiction in Czech

Pulp fiction17,661 words

English original here

Pulp Fiction Quentina Tarantina se řadí k mým nejoblíbenějším filmům. Nechtěl jsem, aby se mi líbil – původně jsem na něj dokonce ani nechtěl jít. Podle všeho co jsem o něm slyšel, jsem film měl za naprosto nihilistický a dosti odpudivý počin. Pak ale někdo na večírku popsal Pulp Fiction jako film o „velikosti duše na konci historie“, což mě zaujalo, protože jsem zrovna asi po tisící pročítal Platónovu ÚstavuRead more …

Morální faktor, část 1

Rops_Félicien_-_Pornokratès_-_1878 (1)

Félicien Rops, “Pornokratès,” 1878

1,818 words

English original here

„O štěstí neusiluje člověk, jenom Angličan.“ – Nietzsche

Hlavní otázky metapolitiky se soustřeďují kolem identity, morálky amožnosti.

Carl Schmitt považuje za prvopočátek politična dělení na nás a je. Otázky identity zní: „Kdo jsme?“ a „Kdo nejsme?“ Konktrétněji si bílý nacionalismus žádá odpověď na otázku: „Kdo je bělochem a kdo jím není?“  Read more …

624 words

English original here

Nota del Traductor:

“Might is Right” se conoce generalmente como “la ley del más fuerte”, pero por una cuestión de concordancia traducimos “como fuerza y derecho”.

Un lector me preguntó mis pensamientos sobre la relación entre la fuerza y el derecho. (Dicho sea de paso, yo soy feliz de responder cuestiones filosóficas).

The Philosopher is In
Might & Right

durerwildmen

Albrecht Dürer, wild men from the side panels of the Portrait of Oswald Krell, 1499

524 words

Spanish translation here

A reader has asked me for my thoughts on the relationship between might and rights. (By the way, I am happy to entertain philosophical questions.)

What are rights? Rights are principles defining political freedoms and obligations. If rights are political, what makes rights “natural” as opposed to conventional? What makes rights natural is an argument deriving them from human nature. Thus natural rights are socially instituted, protected, and enforced freedoms and obligations that are rationally grounded in nature, Read more …
