Paul Sérant (pen name of Paul Salleron ) (March 19th 1922 with Paris - October 2nd 2002 with Avranches (Handle) was a Journaliste, Essayiste and writer French. Sérant was the brother of the journalist and theorist Catholique Louis Salleron.
Under the Occupation, it took part in a resistance network. After the Second world war, he works with the foreign service of BBC. At the same time, it expresses an lively interest for the esotericism and sciences Occulte S. It approaches the mystical circles of the magus Gurdjieff and it takes note of work traditionalists of Rene Guénon. Faithful to this heritage, he will criticize the positions of Louis Pauwels during the Seventies.
In its lampoons, Sérant was one of the first to criticize the Centralisme Jacobin. It estimated that the Centralisation, such as it was developed in France, attaches energies and sacrifices the Identité S and the Réalité of the old provinces in the name of the " Republic one and indivisible" , which, in its eyes, is only one intellectual abstraction. Same manner, Sérant proposed that are restored the Liberté S confiscated by the omnipotent State and omnipresent, while underlining: “These freedoms and they only can allow the maintenance of the cultures, or their rebirth”.
Difficult to classify on the chess-board Politique, Sérant does not hesitate to polemize as much with the left that the right . Its work counts however several studies on figures of Extreme-right-hand side and it defends readily of the ideals traditionalists.
In its last tests, Sérant defends the Langue S Minoritaire S in France, it is interested in the " vaincus" XXe century, with the Folklore and the Regionalism. With the Racism, he proposes the remedy of the " ethnisme" (while warning against its excesses) which defends the fight of the members of a Communauté to ensure its maintenance.
If Sérant is little known today, several of its tests constitutes sources significant of information and anecdotes, in particular, on the French Action, the purification and various figures of intellectuals related to the Occupation.
