Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age

Author(s): Ricardo Duchesne

At this pivotal moment in recent Western history, Richard Duchesne tackles what may be the most crucial question for people of European descent: ‘What makes us unique?’

Casting aside the dominant cultural Marxist narratives and dismissing the popular media attacks on concepts of ‘whiteness’, Duchesne draws on a range of historical examples, sources and philosophies to examine the origins of European man, his achievements, and the nature of the Faustian spirit that has driven his innovation and creativity.

In an age of multiculturalism and globalism one might ask the question ‘Whither Western Man?’ Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age digs deeply in our origins and development to try and point the reader towards the answer.

In Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age, Ricardo Duchesne presents a sweeping vision of the Western personality in history and prehistory, a worthy successor to The Uniquess of Western Civilization. The book subjects distortions of the West’s achievements to scything critique, all within a scientific-realist frame. This is a must-read for Westerners who seek to understand and invest in their ethnic kin.
— Frank Salter, author of On Genetic Interests

Ricardo Duchesne is a critically important intellectual voice for understanding and defending the people and culture of the West. At a time when the West is under assault as never before, intellectually honest, well-researched articles are needed to counteract the disastrous state of affairs resulting from the domination of the academic environment by cultural Marxists bent on portraying the West as a uniquely evil culture whose only achievements have been derived from other cultures. Prof. Duchesne’s work has been invaluable in refuting arguments that denigrate the accomplishments and success of the West and in advancing a counter-narrative emphasizing the heroic, individualistic tradition of the West going back to its Indo-European roots. I am very proud to have published his articles in The Occidental Quarterly.
— Kevin MacDonald, author of The Culture of Critique

  • Ricardo returns to Red Ice for an engrossing conversation on multiculturalism, history, and liberalism. We begin by discussing Ricardo’s academic career, which has been slightly complicated by his opposition to the reigning Leftist status quo.

  • I had the chance to meet Professor Ricardo Duchesne a few years ago, before he launched the Council of Euro-Canadians blog. Thanks to his professorial approach, he made me grasp the depth of Antonio Gramsci’s thoughts and how we should use his approach if we were to have success in reversing the current dominant culture. I am not ashamed to say that this meeting was one of the most influential ones in my own intellectual development. It is why I was particularly thrilled to learn that he had decided to pen a new book, his first one since he started being involved in the Canadian Alternative Right, if we can use that term. His book Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age met my expectations.

  • In the members’ hour, Ricardo tells us about his upcoming book, Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age. He argues that the true spirit of the West is Faustian, meaning exploration, discovery, and a desire to penetrate the unknown are the defining aspects of the European soul.

  • In his new book, Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age,  he develops further the theme about the super-ultimate origin of the West’s uniqueness, which he did not explicitly address in the earlier book.

  • Richardo Duchesne: [...] Only European peoples have been made to feel that they must transform their nations into multi-racial places and thereby eliminate themselves from their historic position as rulers of their own homelands. Anti-racism is a war against Whites in their own countries. Those who opposed this war are called “White Supremacists”.
    Le Harfang Magazine, Council of European CanadiansCouncil of European Canadians
  • Finally, Duchesne considers geographical exploration as a useful subject matter for elucidating the Faustian spirit of Europe. Much writing on Western achievement, such as Charles Murray’s Human Accomplishment, focuses on the arts and sciences, but these are later, sublimated expressions of the primordial European heroic ambition. The history of exploration not only brings us closer to that primordial ambition; it shows up the contrast between the West and the non-West at its most stark.
