Lettres du mont-Blanc

P. Lovecraft la qualité d’avoir créé une mythologie, alors même qu’il avouait, dans ses lettres, avoir cherché à le faire – quoiqu’il s’agît d’une mythologie illusoire, lui donnant éphémèrement le sentiment que s’arracher aux lois de l’espace et du temps était possible1. Confondant création mythologique et religion personnelle, une partie de la critique s’arc-boute sur la confession matérialiste de l’écrivain pour nier qu’il ait pu créer une illusion mythologique, comme s’il était impossible à un homme de créer des fictions dans lesquelles les principes n’étaient pas tous ceux qu’il attribue à la réalité, comme si toute fiction devait refléter la philosophie de l’auteur, voire en faire la promotion – comme si d’ailleurs elle ne servait qu’à cela.

Mais le fait est que, chez Lovecraft, la fiction est profondément étendue, et qu’il n’est pas loin d’avoir créé un monde à part. Sancrucensis. Lev Shestov - Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Nietzsche - ToC.

University of Glasgow. Following the launch of the Shestov Studies Society, the first issue of the Shestov Journal came out in 1997, as a bi-lingual (English/ French) publication, that combined the informative role of a newsletter and the wider scope of a magazine devoted to the publication of new critical work as well as to the occasional re-printing of significant exegeses, or even primary texts which are long out of print.

So far, five issues of the Shestov journal have been published : Issue nr. 4-5 is devoted to Shestov's previously unpublished correspondence with Martin Buber. Issue nr. 6 includes the reprint of the article 'Menacing Barbarians of Today', which initially came out in 1934 in the theosophical journal The Aryan Path, and which has never been reprinted in a volume. Issue nr. 8 is devoted to Rachel Bespaloff's work and its relationship to Lev Shestov's thought.

Issue nr. 9 includes several articles and previously unpublished documents concerning Benjamin Fondane's relationship to Shestov.

This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms.

Dr. Don Felix Sarda Y Salvany. Liberalism is the root of heresy, the tree of evil in whose branches all the harpies of infidelity find ample shelter; it is today the evil of all evils.

(Ch. 4). "The theater, literature, public and private morals are all saturated with obscenity and impurity. The result is inevitable; a corrupt generation necessarily begets a revolutionary generation. Liberalism is the program of naturalism. Free-thought begets free morals, or immorality. Ivan Illich.
