Nei primi anni del dopoguerra, mentre si andava delineando quella integrazione planetaria nel nome della tecnica che oggi è sotto gli occhi di tutti, Ernst Jünger elaborò questo testo, apparso nel 1951, oggi più affilato che mai. La figura del Ribelle jüngeriano corrisponde a quella dell'anarca, del singolo braccato da un ordine che esige innanzitutto un controllo capillar ...more

Ernst Jünger was one of the more fascinating men of the twentieth century. Remembered in the English-speaking world primarily for his World War I memoir, "The Storm of Steel," he was famous in Europe for a range of right-leaning thought spanning nearly eighty years (he lived from 1896 to 1998). His output was prodigious, more than fifty books along with voluminous correspondence, and not meant or useful as a seamless ideology, although certain themes apparently recur. This book, "The Forest Pass ...more

"… hier heißt es, mit den Wölfen heulen oder gegen sie ins Feld ziehen …"

This essay from the early 1950s made for uncomfortable reading, in tone and in substance, and also in the mixture of the two. The voice here is supremely controlled and equanimous but calls in no uncertain terms for a radical form of resistance. The mix has something Mephistophelian and chills to the bone. Qua substance there is much which goes against the grain of my personal worldview.

There is no denying that we live in turbulent times, as a nearly dystopian reality is unfolding before our eyes, nihilism, idleness and fear almost being turned into virtues, yet by breaking away from the veil of propaganda, ascending towards higher values, reminiscing of the Promethean myth, it is in our power to lay the foundation stone for a saner world, as highlighted by the ideal of the Waldgänger, one of the three archetypes found in Ernst Jünger's writings, alongside the Worker and the Un ...more

Written in 1951, which you can tap into, even without knowing the publication date. Like, it's on this edge of, Oh, these passages could be written about today, but then, No, there's a familiar post-WWII sense about it. Lots of interesting, powerful, familiar ideas woven in a coherent way. Honest and respects the reader.

I was very interested in this book, however the translation is not perfect -- particularly amusing to me is the non-anglicized translation of "william tell" as "wilhelm tell". The passive voice is regularly overused throughout the text, there are some misplaced apostrophes, and some words missing here and there. Overall, however, it is an extremely prescient and engaging essay which speaks with great insight to many of the effects of modern technology on the psyche and the spirit (what Junger ca ...more

Incomprensibile per menti mediocri. Sublime per menti eccellenti e per chi ha la consapevolezza di non essere realmente libero. Lettura comunque semplice e profonda allo stesso tempo. 5 stelle sono troppo poche.

- El mito no es historia ocurrida en un tiempo anterior; es realidad intemporal que se reitera en la historia.

- Cabría decir que existe siempre una determinada cantidad de disposición a creer, una sed que era aplacada de modo legítimo por las Iglesias. Pero ahora, habiéndose librado de éstas, esa fuerza se adhiere al primer objeto que le sale al paso. De ahí la credulidad, la fe de carbonero del hombre moderno, que es simultáneamente un incrédulo.

Compreendo onde Jünger quer chegar, mas ele recorre à figura de um arquétipo para explicar coisas que são demasiado complexas para um arquétipo. Faria mais sentido se tivesse escrito um romance e depois uma análise ao mesmo. Ou então sou eu que continuo alérgica a este tipo de linguagem filosófica, ou ele não sabia escrever não-ficção, porque adorei ler Sobre as Falésias de Mármore do mesmo autor.

Achei a metáfora desnecessariamente floreada e complexificada, linguagem super masculina; o autor é

Ernst Junger is one of the most complex and challenging writers of the 20th Century. This book deals with one of his archetypes, "the Anarch" (the others grappling with the Soldier and the Worker, primarily). This is more of a tract than a book, though its length does nothing to take away from its import or intellectual heft.

The author deals with the relationship of the individual to the state in general, and to various forms of oppression and terror. Having some familiarity with the theologian

Una lectura que me marcó. Texto denso y extraño.

La emboscadura (1951) del filósofo alemán Ernst Jünger es un extraño ensayo filosófico basado en capítulos cortos, que trata sobre la idea de la “emboscadura”, el acto de huir e irse al “bosque”. Publicada tras la Segunda Guerra Mundial, la esencia de la obra es el papel del “hombre singular soberano” frente a las masas; de su libertad frente al miedo; del poder del individuo frente al colectivo. Como digo, es un ensayo filosófico, muy ético, rarís

Piccolo gioiello della filosofia moderna scritto da una mente brillante (e un po’ controversa) che è quella di Jünger.
L’opera studia la figura del Ribelle ovvero l’uomo libero e i compiti che gli spettano.
Nell’epoca moderna l’individuo è costretto a perdersi nel gregge della massa vinto dalla propaganda e dal terrore della libertà. Secondo Jünger “passare al bosco” è necessario per riscoprire il diritto di essere liberi. Il bosco è un viaggio verso se stessi, distaccato dalla società, dove l’uo

Jag kommer behöva älta denna lilla betraktelse, återkomma och spekulera. Samtidigt är det tydligt att denna text är skräckinjagande aktuell både i sin kritik av massamhället, moderniteten och teknikens under. Jünger lyfter fram skogsvandraren som den karaktär som kan motsätta sig denna utveckling, stå utanför och emot. Som en av de få vägarna om inte framåt så ut. Det våldsbejakande finns kvar hos Jünger men har blivit ett allt mer spirituelt eller existentiellt våld. Ett våld mot samhället men ...more

Carries much of his energy from "Storm of Steel".

A bit hard to follow at points, the language gets flowery when its attempting to explain a concrete principle. Namely, being free in an unfree world, and how different situations call for different responses.

I assume this is due to an attempt to translate German into English.

An otherwise eloquent and thoughtful reader on the concept of ethical individuals, and how they comport themselves when the environment calls for unethical crowd based madn

К сожалению, единственный русский перевод, который мне достался, изрядно хромает. В результате большую часть времени я пыталась расшифровать, как бы звучало исходное предложение и какой смысл следует мне улавливать в таком случае.

Труд, как минимум, дает представление о мыслях и сомнениях, гложущих человека после двух мировых войн. Всё опять восходит к тому, что готовых ответов нет, а свобода без выбора не существует. Что можно назвать выбором, как человек может прийти к его осознанию, и что его

"Where the automatism increases to the point of approaching perfection—such as in America—the panic is even further intensified. There it finds its best feeding grounds; and it is propagated through networks that operate at the speed of light. The need to hear the news several times a day is already a sign of fear; the imagination grows and paralyzes itself in a rising vortex. The myriad antennae rising above our megacities resemble hairs standing on end—they provoke demonic contacts." ...more

L'ottima penna di Ernst Jünger accompagna il lettore in questo breve saggio che definisce il concetto di "anarchico". Al suo interno non troverete definizioni ideologiche, ma solo un'interpretazione intellettuale della ribellione come " passaggio al bosco".

Con questo testo Jünger si colloca tra i più grandi teorici, insieme a Max Stirner, dell' anarchismo di destra (o anarco-individualismo) , non definendone il recinto ideologico, ma i soggetti che lo popolano.

Sinceramente, me ha desepcionado mucho. La temática es interesante, pero el autor se esfuerza por hacerla soporífera: el libro es caótico, Jünger no se centra, desvaría, divaga y pierde al lector por el camino. Vistas las críticas del libro, quizá necesite de una segunda lectura... pero lo dudo.

Un libro breve ma lungo. È stato faticoso finirlo. La prosa di Jünger mi è sembrata convoluta nei momenti migliori e incomprensibile in quelli peggiori. Penso che sarebbe stato possibile comunicare gli stessi concetti con un linguaggio assai più semplice.

Ad ogni modo, questo mi sembra un piccolo manuale dell'individualista, dove il "passaggio al bosco" -- la presa di coscienza individuale delle proprie capacità e del proprio posto nella società -- è la chiave della ribellione nel titolo. Ribell

Wunderbar. Nejsem jistě sto pochopit vše, co Jünger ve své knize, která vyšla těsně po válce, mínil, přesto si lze odnést několik aktualizovaných paralel. Předně to, že absolutní většina nepotvrzuje, ale naopak vyvracuje - jeho konfese na volby v totalitním režimu je velmi trefná. Také to, že svoboda je podmíněna nutností, která ji utváří, kterou si zároveň lesní chodec velmi dobře uvědomuje. Ten je líčen tak trochu jako moderní nietzscheovský nadčlověk. A zatřetí že církev má charakter asistenč ...more

«Страх всегда оставался важным собеседником в том диалоге, в котором человек советуется сам с собой. При этом страх тяготеет к монологу, в этой исключительной роли оставляя за собой последнее слово.
Напротив, если этот разговор обращается в диалог, человек способен в нём участвовать. При этом разрушается иллюзия безысходности.»

“None of us can know today if tomorrow morning we will not be counted as part of a group considered outside the law. In that moment the civilized veneer of life changes, as the state props of well-being disappear and are transformed into omens of destruction. The luxury liner becomes a battleship, or the black jolly roger and the red executioner’s flag are hoisted on it.” 3 likes
“Not so the forest rebel. He has a tough decision to make: to reserve the right—at any cost—to judge for himself what he is called upon to support or contribute to. There will be considerable sacrifices, but they will be accompanied by an immediate gain in sovereignty. Naturally, as things stand, only a tiny minority will perceive the gain as such. Dominion, however, can only come from those who have preserved in themselves a knowledge of native human measures and who will not be forced by any superior power to forsake acting humanely.” 1 likes
