Abstract

Abstract:

This paper deals with the relationship between myth and right-wing culture in the works and intellectual biography of Furio Jesi (1941–1980). It summarizes Jesi's epistemological approach to the scientific study of myth and mythology, emphasizing the concept of the "mythological machine," before proceeding to describe Jesi's perspective on far-right thought, postwar neo-Fascism, the presence of metaphysical and political backgrounds in history of religion, and several elements of postwar Italian pop culture.
