Archeofuturism er en bok på 253 sider skrevet av den franske politiske teoretikeren Guillaume Faye. Boken som er en samling med artikler skrevet av Faye, kom ut for første gang i Frankrike i 1998, med tittelen L'Archéofuturisme, før den kom ut for første gang på engelsk i 2010 som den første i en serie av oversettelser utført av forlaget Arktos. Forordet i boken er skrevet av den kjente identitære forfatteren Michael O'Meara som gav ut en bok om blant annet Faye med navnet New Culture, New Right: Anti-Liberalism in Postmodern Europe.
Boken tar for seg det forfatteren ser som den europeiske identitetskrisen som kombinert med ulike andre kriser vil bli en konvergens av katastrofer mellom 2010 og 2020. Dette vil føre til et helt annet Europa enn dagens, og forfatteren presenterer her sitt tenkte ideal-Europa, samtidig som han tar opp ulike tankestrømninger som har ført Europa hit. I tillegg tar Faye gjennom hele boken opp problematiske og positive sider ved hele det politiske spekteret, før han legger fram sin arkeofuturistiske visjon om et Europa som kombinerer det dypeste av tradisjonen med det beste av teknologien.
Fra bokens bakside
|”||Archeofuturism, an important work in the tradition of the European New Right, is finally now available in English. Challenging many assumptions held by the Right, this book generated much debate when it was first published in French in 1998. Faye believes that the future of the Right requires a transcendence of the division between those who wish for a restoration of the traditions of the past, and those who are calling for new social and technological forms - creating a synthesis which will amplify the strengths and restrain the excesses of both: Archeofuturism.
Faye also provides a critique of the New Right; an analysis of the continuing damage being done by Western liberalism, political inertia, unrestrained immigration and ethnic self-hatred; and the need to abandon past positions and dare to face the realities of the present in order to realise the ideology of the future. He prophesises a series of catastrophes between 2010 and 2020, brought about by the unsustainability of the present world order, which he asserts will offer an opportunity to rebuild the West and put Archeofuturism into practice on a grand scale.
This book is a must-read for anyone concerned with the course that the Right must chart in order to deal with the increasing crises and challenges it will face in the coming decades.
Guillaume Faye was one of the principal members of the famed French New Right organisation GRECE in the 1970s and '80s. After departing in 1986 due to his disagreement with its strategy, he had a successful career on French television and radio before returning to the stage of political philosophy as a powerful alternative voice with the publication of Archeofuturism. Since then he has continued to challenge the status quo within the Right in his writings, earning him both the admiration and disdain of his colleagues.
— Arktos, 2010
Guillaume Faye was a leading theorist of the French 'New Right' during the 1970s and ‘80s, and a prominent member of Alain de Benoist’s GRECE group. After leaving the movement in the mid-‘80s for a career in French journalism and radio, he resurfaced as a political writer in 1998, publishing numerous articles on the contemporary situation in Europe, many of which came to form his 1999 book L’Archéofuturisme (published in English translation in 2010 by Arktos under the title Archeofuturism). Ever controversial, Faye has criticised not only what he views as the ongoing Islamisation of Europe, as well as the dominant European culture of self-loathing, but he has also attacked anti-Semitism and Holocaust revisionism in his work La Nouvelle question juive, arousing ire not only among the Left, but also in many corners of the so-called 'Far Right'. Arktos has also published his book Why We Fight, which is a manifesto in the form of a dictionary for the identitarian revolutionaries of the West.
Among his ideas are notions such as an all but complete rejection of current political projects; opposition to extra-European, and especially Islamic, immigration; and a strong pan-Europeanism, which he views as the only hope for European survival. He continues to write and lecture to this day. Archeofuturism was the first in a series of his works that will be made available in English by Arktos.
