I’ve recently started reading essays by Claes Ryn, editor-in-chief of Humanitas.
Dangerous Minds: Nietzsche, Heidegger, and the Rise of the Far Right
Philosophers have long been seen as politically useless. Socrates conveys the situation in an image. A city is like a ship upon which sailors are fighting to seize control, some throwing overboard or killing others who have managed to take the helm.
I’m currently reading Alexander Dugin’s In Search of the Dark Logos, the work that is something like volume 0 to the 22-volume Noomahia book series.
Platonic Xenophobia (Plato on the refugee crisis)
The Syrian immigration crisis has forced many in Europe and elsewhere to start asking some fundamental questions about who they are.
Politicians and analysts are increasingly talking about a new cold war between Russia and the West.
Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro, and a number of other public intellectuals have recently become mega superstars.
I’m reading The Growth of Biological Thought by Ernst Mayr.
My translation of Alexander Dugin’s Ethnosociology is now available in English as Ethnos and Society.
Heidegger in Russia and Eastern Europe, edited by Jeff Love, is now available.
The latest addition to Rowman & Littlefield’s New Heidegger Research series, “this volume examines Heidegger’s influence in a region where his reception has had a remarkable and largely hidden history: Eastern Europe and Russia.”
