ARISTOGENESIS. This is the eleventh episode of Aristogenesis.
In this episode Nestor interviews a renowned veteran of the struggle whose intellectual work has contributed immensely to our understanding of the Indo-European worldview and illuminated the aristocratic, idealistic and authentic spirit of the Western civilization.
Dr Alexander Jacob is a political philosopher, a scholar, a musician and a very productive author with a long career in academia. His books, articles and lectures deal with Indo-European cosmology and metaphysics, philosophy and politics. He has translated and edited many conservative thinkers of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, like Henry More, Gottfried Feder, Houston Stewart Chamberlain, Alfred Rosenberg, Edgar Jung, Eugen Dühring and more. His special interest and research into the Vedic traditions of India, the aristocratic philosophy of Europe and the nationalistic European regimes of the 19th and 20th centuries will be our main focus for this series of two interviews.
In this first interview we discuss Dr Jacob’s life and career and attempt a comparative study of important metaphysical and philosophical concepts of the Indo-European traditions, specifically between parts of the Vedic heritage of India, like the Upanishads, and the philosophy of Plato, who in this episode will represent Europe and Western thought.
