New Dugin Translation Project

It’s been a while since I have translated a book by Alexander Dugin. The last project I did was a series of essays from platonizm.ru, to be published by Arktos under the title Political Platonism. But in recent conversations with smart political philosophers, Dugin’s second Heidegger book, Martin Heidegger: The Possibility of Russian Philosophy keeps coming up, leaving me with a strong urge to get to work on making it available in English.

Olavo de Carvalho vs. Alexander Dugin

New Millerman Talks videos on the debate between Olavo de Carvalho and Alexander Dugin. Olavo was in the news recently, after a documentary film in his honour was screened in Washington, DC at the Trump International Hotel. Guests included Eduardo Bolsonaro, the son of the Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro. According to the Financial Times, Eduardo said of his father’s team that they “could not have won the election without Olavo” and “Without Olavo there would be no President Bolsonaro.”

Extended Interview with Students for Western Civilisation

Today, Students for Western Civilisation posted an extended version of my interview on academic bias against right-wing thought. Watch it below if you want. And if you enjoy it, please like and share the video.

There’s a shorter version, too, which they used for their video on “How Far-Left Universities Create Far-Right Students,” available here. You can learn more about Students for Western Civilisation and watch their other videos on their website.

Leo Strauss and Straussian Witchcraft

Back in grad school I was a big fan of Leo Strauss. His books are a welcome gateway drug into classical political philosophy. He was also a great teacher. Generations of his students, following in what they see as his footsteps, have produced their own good works: studies, commentaries, and translations of important writings.

But some followers of Leo Strauss give the impression that they are parroting his dogmatic statements, rather than thinking them through. My latest publication is a lighthearted reflection on that tendency of a subset of Straussians to hypnotize themselves with Strauss’s mantras. It’s also a reflection on the relationship between moderation and philosophy.

You might also enjoy watching this video on Strauss’s essay called “German Nihilism” or browse the writings on his thought available here.

“How Far-Left Universities Create Far-Right Students”

Have you ever wondered why right-wing thinkers get almost no coverage at universities, while left-wing thinkers do and sometimes even dominate the conversation? Here’s a video on that issue, produced by George Hutcheson / Students for Western Civilisation. The main idea is that excessively far-left leaning universities, departments, and professors can make normal, moderate students into far-right students.
