Finally translated into Italian the voluminous essay written by Pierre-André Taguieff on the controversial figure of Alain de Benoist, the writer and leader of the transalpine countries movement, the so-called “New Right Wing”, that has found followers all throughout Europe. Taguieff takes in a meticulous critical reconstruction of the thirty-year work of de Benoist, starting with his intellectual itinerary. The conclusion is that, actually, the “New Right” phenomenon is difficult to place along the right/left axis and that the path of its inspirer shows a constant distancing from the traditional myths of the Right (Occidentalism, nationalism, biological reductionism, the cult of war) in the direction of new synthesis of thought such as open multiculturalism, participatory democracy, Third World. Therefore, not just a rigorous political-philosophical analysis but, as well, a vibrant and brilliant stance of liberty of expression and of discussion.
