How can we find stability in the Night of the World? How can we anchor ourselves in the void of existence, the great nothingness of the endless dark plain ahead of us? The new voices of the old Gods can be heard from afar, beckoning us back into the fold of the folk. Where will we wander? Into oblivion or the primeval forest, from whence we came and to which we have always belonged and thus must return?

The meanings of words spell out the destinies of men. Acknowledging the roots of language leads us to an understanding of where we now stand and where we must go if we do not want to perish. The Gods without must once again become the Gods within, so we can hear for the last time the faint whispers of our ancestors guiding us into a better tomorrow.

The author considers various aspects of the German Logos and the Germanic-Scandinavian tradition in the light of neo-Platonism and the fundamental-ontology of Martin Heidegger in the search for Nothing as absolutely Another. At the center of the narrative is the history of the decline of Europe and European man, and the complex non-dual figure of the god Odin.

Beginning with Heidegger https://arktos.com/product/beginning-with-heidegger-hardback/ https://arktos.com/product/beginning-with-heidegger-hardback/#comments_reply Fri, 25 Sep 2020 00:52:22 +0000 https://arktos.com/?post_type=product&p=8417 Strauss, Rorty, Derrida, Dugin and the Philosophical Constitution of the Political

Beginning with Heidegger is an in-depth examination of the influence that Martin Heidegger’s inceptual thought exerted on Leo Strauss, Richard Rorty, Jacques Derrida and Alexander Dugin. How did these vastly different thinkers employ Heideggerian concepts to define their own philosophies and often antagonistic politics? After outlining Heidegger’s main philosophical points, it discusses attacks on and the misuse of Heidegger’s ideas to advance Rorty’s left-leaning and liberal political agenda as well as the different interpretations that Strauss and Heidegger offer regarding Plato’s notion of the Good.

It also looks at the existential rebirth in Russia that Heidegger’s groundbreaking theories and Dugin’s extension of them made possible. The role of Heidegger’s notion of “Dasein” is the key to a Eurasian awakening for not just one but for many peoples of the heartland. In this respect, both Heidegger and Dugin seem to be the lights that guide a people without a philosophy into a destiny filled with meaning and identity.

The book calls for the incorporation of Heidegger’s thinking into the field of political philosophy and cautions against the distorting effects of our prevailing political prejudices.

A Handbook of Traditional Living https://arktos.com/product/a-handbook-of-traditional-living-vol2-hardback/ https://arktos.com/product/a-handbook-of-traditional-living-vol2-hardback/#comments_reply Tue, 15 Sep 2020 03:37:30 +0000 https://arktos.com/?post_type=product&p=8430 II. Style & Ascesis

The second volume of A Handbook of Traditional Living continues the project of the first: to resurrect perennial values for a Traditionalist lifestyle in an anti-Traditional world, and to provide concrete and desperately needed advice for those who wish to break free of the spell of a deadening and desert-like modernity.

Deeply inspired by Julius Evola, René Guénon, and the Traditionalism of which they were foremost exponents, A Handbook of Traditional Living: Style and Ascesis confronts the fundamental questions of family, friendship, work, genders and marriage, religion and spirituality, and what it means to be a militant of the Tradition in today’s increasingly confused and fragmented society. The result is a treasure trove of wisdom, concisely providing the practical and theoretical bedrock for the Traditionalist worldview and ethic in one’s day-to-day life, thereby giving new breath to a lifestyle, vision and philosophy that has too long been lacking from our world.

Prometheism https://arktos.com/product/prometheism-hardback/ https://arktos.com/product/prometheism-hardback/#comments_reply Tue, 08 Sep 2020 01:45:09 +0000 https://arktos.com/?post_type=product&p=8374

This is a declaration of war. In the name of our creator, we declare a revolutionary war against both the gods and those titans who were gods before them! In the name of our liberator, we declare a revolutionary war against fatalism and every other form of tyranny! We think from out of the end of all things, with an indomitable will to achieve either victory or a martyrdom that inspires enduring rebellion in those to whom we pass the torch of our example.

So begins this incendiary work of Philosophy, in which Jason Reza Jorjani returns to the spectral trajectory of Prometheus and Atlas (Arktos 2016). Here Jorjani advocates embracing a Promethean ethos as we face the prospect of the end of humanity, the end of history, and the end of reality beyond the event horizon of the technological Singularity. “Prometheism,” a contraction of Prometheus and Theism, offers a new metaphysics, epistemology, aesthetics, ethics, and politics to those with the vision and will to spearhead an evolutionary revolution into a new Promethean age that supersedes modernity.

In this book, Jorjani also calls the Prometheist partisan to rebel against the cynical, self-proclaimed elite of a Breakaway Civilization whose machinations threaten to forcibly regress humanity to a pre-industrial state of society before the advent of the Singularity. He argues that instead of submitting to this patronizing occultation of science and technology, we should build a socio-political order capable of enduring the most radical developments in Parapsychology, Genetic Engineering, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Nanotechnology, and Zero Point Energy (together with its potential for affording us the ability to Time Travel). In Jorjani’s view, understanding and thereby more consciously controlling the spectral force of Prometheus, as an archetype and egregore, is the key to masterfully navigating this apocalyptic crisis that we will face within the next thirty years.

Sigmund vol. 1 https://arktos.com/product/sigmund-vol1/ https://arktos.com/product/sigmund-vol1/#comments_reply Thu, 03 Sep 2020 11:55:44 +0000 https://arktos.com/?post_type=product&p=8347 Born from the blood of gods, Sigmund is a young boy destined for great deeds. But he is lost — he has forgotten who he is, and this is a story of rediscovery, of a struggle to return home.

A reimagination of the ancient Völsunga saga, this graphic novel aims to resound with our own longing for a new dawn, through the dark perils and tragic beauty of a fallen age.
