(p.91) 6 Guillaume Faye and Archeofuturism
Key Thinkers of the Radical Right

Stéphane François

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the life and work of Guillaume Faye, a pan-European revolutionary-conservative thinker who is at the origin of the renewal of the doctrinal corpus of the French “identitarian” Right, and more broadly of the Euro-American Right, with the concept of “archeofuturism,” forged in the mid-1990s using elements from postmodern philosophy and from the counterculture. His political involvement has gone through two main periods. From 1970 to 1986 he was a member of GRECE and can be regarded as its second theorist. After a withdrawal from activism between 1985 and 1996 to work in the French media, he returned as an identitarian theoretician. His complex and innovative thought, combining postmodern philosophy and discourses of identity, is read and appreciated by European and American militants.

Keywords:   Guillaume Faye, New Right, GRECE, Europe, archeofuturism, identitarianism, Nouvelle Droite, immigration, Islam, France
