Guillaume Faye, The Golden One and the Metapolitical Legion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


On March 7, it will have been two years since the death of Guillaume Faye, former number two of La Nouvelle Droite. His death wasn’t big news in mass media. In academic research, Faye exists mostly in the shadow of the French New Right's so-called number one, Alain de Benoist. This lack of academic attention contrasts with the uptake of his work in contemporary far right groups around the world (see Maly, 2022, for an elaborate discussion). The Golden One is one of those far-right activists who was heavily influenced by Guillaume Faye.
