About the Journal
The New Antaios Journal follows in the footsteps of authors Ernst Jünger and Mircea Eliade who were editors of the original Antaios Journal (1959-1971). Both Antaios and The New Antaios Journals are named after a giant from the Greek mythology and who was defeated by Heracles. The new incarnation of this journal is primarily focused on diverse cultures and traditions all while being entirely dedicated to Ernst Jünger and study of his works.
Why New Antaios?
The New Antaios Journal interests are in research and study of Ancient & Archaic Beliefs,Traditions, Customs, Cultures, Folklore and Heritage with focus on the Europe and Mediterranean as well as our planet.
Topics in the Journal are diverse, thus they range from Philosophy, Sociology, History, Geography, Psychology to Arts, Music and Film.
Our goal is to provide a philosophical stance combined with the serious study and research. Our perception of the Hypermodernity is the critical one; rather we advocate a return to the noble spirit and pluralistic values of the Polytheism rooted in diverse soils. Hence our intent is to build a positive critique of Hipermodernity / Post-modernity and its politically correct dogma.
The New Antaios also means reconnecting with the natural beliefs, metaphysical & philosophical currents/teachings and beliefs of Europe and the World. We are particularly focused on those which are almost forgotten today.
The New Antaios follows in the tradition of diverse authors, philosophers, mystics and what some would consider – heretics. Our studies and work are based upon the principle of free thought and the rejection of any kind/form of fanaticism,totalitarianism,dogmatism, dualism, the concept of Revelation or utilitarianism . Please note that this Journal doesn’t promote New Age, Wicca or/and any kind of speculative philosophies or speculative esotericism.
Some of the diverse authors, academics, thinkers and philosophers we admire and study are: Mircea Eliade, Emile M. Cioran, Srila Ananta Das Babaji Maharaja, Dr. Jarava Lal Mehta,Nicolás Gómez Dávila, F.G. Jünger, prof. Mario Kopić, Dr.Radoslav Katičić, Rolf Schilling, Georges Dumézil, Jan de Vries, Jean Varenne, Louis Rougier, Sri Ram Swarup, Alain Daniélou etc.
Our motto is : “Nature as the foundation, excellence as a goal, beauty as the horizon. ” (Homeric Triad as interpreted by Dominique Venner)

Good communication wins, bad communication kills. You see it everywhere: in friendships, marriages, media, photography, design, art, politics, in all walks of life. Bad communication creates apprehension, isolation and misunderstanding, good communication bridges that misunderstanding and paves roads of appreciation. Best of communication reveals sincerity, thoughtfulness through language of aesthetics.
