On the ‘Atomwaffen Division’

‘Satanism is alright. Depends on how you go about it. But then again, I’m more well read on the subject than most people.

Below, excerpts from the final chapter of Nixey’s book: ‘Moreover, we forbid the teaching of any doctrine by those who labour under the insanity of paganism’. – Justinian Code The philosopher Damascius was a brave man: you had to be to see what he had seen and still be a philosopher. But as he walked…

The supremacy over Athens

At this point, we must address the issue that will certainly be around the heads of many readers: the comparison Sparta-Athens. What city was better? Often we are told that Athens represented the artistic and spiritual summit of Greece and Sparta the physical and warrior evolution. It’s not as easy as that. We must start…

But the impatient English reader can go…

  INTRODUCTION Athens, AD 532 ‘That all superstition of pagans and heathens should be annihilated is what God wants, God commands, God proclaims.’ — St Augustine This was no time for a philosopher to be philosophical. ‘The tyrant’, as the philosophers put it, was in charge and had many alarming habits.

The Story of Philosophy, 6

The Republic The last words of Will Durant in the previous entry of this series: ‘Let us study The Republic’. But in this post I will not quote any passage from Durant’s book. I will give my opinion on this classic work that bequeathed us historical Greece. In the first place, it must be recognised…
