Charles William Dailey joins Alexander Wolfheze to talk about his book, The Serpent Symbol in Tradition, recently published by Arktos.

(1) The quotation at 33:30 is taken from the famous scene in Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1987 film The Last Emperor, in which the child Pu-yi is named to succeed as Emperor by the Empress Dowager Tzu-hshi.

(2) For those interested in a Traditionalist take on Modern Cultural History and/or Post-modern Meta-Politics: the interviewer in this episode of Interregnum, has published several books relevant to both topics: The Sunset of Tradition (Cambridge Scholars, 2018), Traditionalist History: The Former Earth (Cambridge Scholars, 2021), Alba Rosa (Arktos: London, 2019).

(3) To add some artistic fire to this philosophical talk: an appropriate theme song to this Interregnum edition, which touches upon the primordial creativity of all authentic Tradition, would be ‘Pfhat A flash… and the sky opened!’ by Giacinto Scelsi (1974). It is a ‘half-coded’ reference to the Ancient Egypt Creator God Ptah.

The Arktos Restoration Initiative

We have handpicked thirty distinguished titles, previously lost to censorship, befitting any refined bookshelf. These esteemed classics are now offered in limited leather-bound editions, with a mere 100 copies per title. Owning one not only grants you a collector’s item but also supports our mission to restore them in paperback for all.

We will sequentially reveal three titles. After each pre-sale set concludes, we will move to the next trio. As each set is claimed, we will ship these treasures, while also making paperback versions available in our online store.

Your contribution aids the metapolitical battle, ensuring that vital ideas and concepts remain accessible to an ever-expanding audience.
