The Metaphysics of Death

4,440 words

“Only the dead can know what it means to be dead.”—Ananda Coomaraswamy[1]

Philip Larkin’s poem “Aubade” articulates his fear of death in chilling terms. It describes a man who hates his job and gets drunk every night. Then, before dawn, he wakes, and with the gathering light, he fixates on the certainty of his own death and what it will mean for him.

Remembering Julius Evola:
May 19, 1898–June 11, 1974

919 words

Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born on May 19, 1898 in Rome. Along with René Guénon, Evola is one of the writers who has most influenced the metapolitical outlook and project of Counter-Currents, which is reflected in the fact that Evola is one of the most-tagged writers on this website. In commemoration of his birthday, I wish to draw your attention to the following resources.

svenssonLennart Svensson
Science Fiction Seen from the Right
Manticore Books, 2016

“Ursula Le Guin wrote about socialist utopias. Heinlein fought against them. There you have Science Fiction Seen from the Right in a nutshell.”

November 15, 1886 to January 7, 1951

Rene-guenon-1925305 words

René Guénon was born on November 15, 1886. Along with Julius Evola, Guénon was one of the leading figures in the Traditionalist school, which has deeply influenced my own outlook and the metapolitical mission and editorial agenda of Counter-Currents Publishing and North American New Right. (For a sense of my differences with Guénon, see my lecture on “Vico and the New Right.”)  Read more …

Buffalo, N.Y.: Prometheus Books, 2000

“Islam is in fact the last refuge for those conservative Western intellectuals who wish it were true that the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, the French Revolution, in short, ‘the modern world,’ had never come about.

The Caste System of the Alt Right

egypt-pyramids-wallpaper-for-desktop-2348444,353 words

Over the last few months there has been quite a bit of hubbub within the Alt Right movement over who exactly can be counted among our ranks and who can credibly be representing us to the public. This discussion has become particularly prominent in our circles since Hillary gave her lackluster speech on our movement and warned everyone about the dangers of our cartoon frog. Read more …
