We aspire to an objective, practical understanding of Ernst Jünger's works and encourage others seeking freedom and self-realisation to join us. Jünger's life and works can serve as an excellent roadmap to freedom and meaning in today's social and spiritual landscape. Crucial is his figure of the autonomous and inwardly-free anarch (in contrast to the impotent self-destructive anarchist) as presented in his masterpiece EUMESWIL.
In a site devoted to Ernst Jünger, it is unforgivable that I have never mentioned the remarkable work of the Association Eumeswil in Florence, Italy. As one of the only groups world-wide that regularly organizes conferences and other events on Ernst Jünger, they deserve front-page treatment here. This oversight will be redressed in the future, as I have nothing but respect for their efforts there!
They gain plenty of extra points in my eyes, since they are clearly oriented towards Ernst Jünger´s mature works - as the name already indicates.
For October, this Jünger conference (in Italian) is announced on their website:
Saturday October 23, 17h Istituto dei Padri Scolopi – Scuole Pie Fiorentine, Sala Verde – via Cavour 94, Firenze
Ernst Jünger's Orient: a bridge beyond modernity.
Speaker: Sandro Gorgone, professor of philosophy, University of Messina
The Orient in dialogue between Ernst and Friedrich Georg Jünger
Speaker: Professor Giuliana Gregorio, History of Philosophy, University of Messina.
In the city of the Renaissance, let us hope their work leads to a rebirth of interest in Ernst Jünger!
