Gary Lachman's Dark Star Rising

page 61ff

talks of Frithjof Schuon, and his book "The Transcendent Unity of Religions."  REAL TURKEY!

Then opens discussion of Rene Guenon, and this of course leads to Julius Evola.

We have now mention of a book and writer who look most interesting:

Mark Sedgwick, Against the Modern World (2004)  Seems to be about this "Traditionalism" movement and Sedgwick is said to be a historian of esotericism.

Against the Modern World: Traditionalism and the Secret Intellectual History of the Twentieth Century


Key Thinkers of the Radical Right: Behind the New Threat to Liberal Democracy Paperback  February 5, 2019

Since the start of the twenty-first century, the political mainstream has been shifting to the right. The liberal orthodoxy that took hold in the West as a reaction to the Second World War is breaking down. In Europe, populist political parties have pulled the mainstream in their direction; in America, a series of challenges to the Republican mainstream culminated in the 2016 election of Donald Trump.

In Key Thinkers of the Radical Right, sixteen expert scholars explain sixteen thinkers, providing an introduction to their life and work, a guide to their thought, and an explanation of their work's reception. The chapters focus on thinkers who are widely read across the political right in both Europe and America, such as Julius Evola, Alain de Benoist, and Richard B. Spencer. Featuring classic, modern, and emerging thinkers, this selection provides a good representation of the intellectual right and avoids making political or value judgments. In an increasingly polarized political environment, Key Thinkers of the Radical Right offers a comprehensive and unbiased introduction to the thinkers who form the foundation of the radical right.

Yes, both Mark Sedgwick books and his others are readily available.

Lachman also talks much about Putin't guy Alexander Dugin

Again, what I find most telling is from Mark Sedgwick,

"Since the start of the twenty-first century, the political mainstream has been shifting to the right. The liberal orthodoxy that took hold in the West as a reaction to the Second World War is breaking down. In Europe, populist political parties have pulled the mainstream in their direction; in America, a series of challenges to the Republican mainstream culminated in the 2016 election of Donald Trump. "
