ARISTOGENESIS. This is the eighth episode of Aristogenesis.
In this episode of Aristogenesis, join Nestor and our newest recruit – Alan (from Nordic Frontier) – for the first part of a series of interviews with Askr Svarte (Evgeny Nechkasov).
Askr is a Traditionalist philosopher, founder of the Svarte Aske pagan community. Author of multiple books on the Germanic-Scandinavian tradition, pagan theology and Traditionalist philosophy, as well as dozens of polemical articles and essays in which he criticizes New Age, left-liberal and postmodern currents in Western and Russian neopaganism. A descendant of Bessarabian Germans, exiled to Siberia in the first half of the 20th century, he lives permanently in the city of Novosibirsk in West Siberia, Russia.
Our interviews will be based on his latest book, which has recently been translated into English: Polemos: The Dawn of Pagan Traditionalism. We will be discussing matters regarding the Perennial Tradition, ancient paganism and its modern reconstruction, myth, culture and politics. We will try to examine if and where the paths of Traditionalist philosophy, ancestral wisdom and paganism meet with political activism, and how these seemingly different approaches can complete, enhance and benefit from one another, as well as other interesting topics and subjects.
