At this pivotal moment in recent Western history, Richard Duchesne tackles what may be the most crucial question for people of European descent: ‘What makes us unique?’

Casting aside the dominant cultural Marxist narratives and dismissing the popular media attacks on concepts of ‘whiteness’, Duchesne draws on a range of historical examples, sources and philosophies to examine the origins of European man, his achievements, and the nature of the Faustian spirit that has driven his innovation and creativity.

In an age of multiculturalism and globalism one might ask the question ‘Whither Western Man?’ Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age digs deeply in our origins and development to try and point the reader towards the answer.

Ricardo Duchesne is a professor at The University of New Brunswick. His landmark book from 2011, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, was a critique of the ongoing devaluing of Western culture in the face of multiculturalism since the 1960s.

Editorial Reviews

‘In Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age, Ricardo Duchesne presents a sweeping vision of the Western personality in history and prehistory, a worthy successor to The Uniquess of Western Civilization. The book subjects distortions of the West’s achievements to scything critique, all within a scientific-realist frame. This is a must-read for Westerners who seek to understand and invest in their ethnic kin.’ — Frank Salter, author of On Genetic Interest‘Ricardo Duchesne is a critically important intellectual voice for understanding and defending the people and culture of the West. At a time when the West is under assault as never before, intellectually honest, well-researched articles are needed to counteract the disastrous state of affairs resulting from the domination of the academic environment by cultural Marxists bent on portraying the West as a uniquely evil culture whose only achievements have been derived from other cultures. Prof. Duchesne’s work has been invaluable in refuting arguments that denigrate the accomplishments and success of the West and in advancing a counter-narrative emphasizing the heroic, individualistic tradition of the West going back to its Indo-European roots. I am very proud to have published his articles in The Occidental Quarterly.’ — Kevin MacDonald, author of The Culture of Critique
