Through a series of examples taken from French, Italian, and Austrian-German areas, the article analyzes the relationship of turn-of-the-century far right-wing culture with two macro-topics: anti-materialism and the refusal of a dialectical analyses concerning the bond between culture and social-being. I sustain that both modernist and anti-modernist right-wing cultures refused a dialectical approach in favor of a platonic-emanative one, aimed at characterizing, in an eternized way, the economic, political, and cultural structures of the nations and of the social sectors taken as references. I then explain how this tactic is vital in the so-called «anesthetization of politics» and, finally, I highlight the connections (these ones dialectical) between this approach and the tayloristic mode of production that is, apparently, one of the main targets of right-wing culture itself.
