Product Description

Review

Evola does not write in abstract philosophical language but in
lively prose, filled with fascinating and concrete details. -- Joscelyn Godwin, Gnosis Magazine

Revolt Against the Modern World is destined to remain an essential work and frame-of-reference for anyone seriously involved in native European spirituality. -- Michael Moynihan, Vortru

About the Author

A controversial scholar, philosopher, and social thinker, Julius Evola (1898-1974) has only recently become known to more than a handful of English-speaking readers. An authority on the world's esoteric traditions, Evola wrote extensively on ancient civilizations and the world of Tradition in both East and West. Other books by Evola published by Inner Traditions include "Eros and the Mysteries of Love," "The Yoga of Power," "The Hermetic Tradition, " and "The Doctrine of Awakening."

Baron Evola analyzes how brave man and noble women in "modern" Europe, discontent over the loss of order and the desintegration of values, turned to Traditionalism. Seeking guidelines upon which they could model their lives, they found in Traditionalism a means to maintain clear distinctions between the normal and the abnormal, the accepted and the unacceptable, the real and the virtual. An excellent collection of thoughts and ideas discussing the possible rise of Traditionalist elites and the various precursors of future "Conservative Revolution" in Europe (for clear example just see nowadays Serbia). Simply - "NON PLUS ULTRA". And thank your lucky stars because of that English translation!

Evola shows vast erudition in his derivation of the modern world. Referring to myths and history from all over the world he establishes a sound base for his criticism of modernity. A highly recommended work for those seeking a deeper understanding of this modern world and its relationship to history.

Julius Evola has written an outstanding book, far more shocking than anything written by his more fortunate contemporary C.G. Jung. If you have enjoyed Ortega y Gasset's "The Revolt of the Masses", you will love this book. A must if you are disenchanted with the modern world, modernism, and silly existentialism.

I think that for a true understanding of Evola's masterpiece is necessary a strong background of classical culture, as well as of oriental wisdom.
Something of this book could nowadays seem a little bit queer, but it must be kept in mind when it was written, in the '30:
theories like the one about Atlantis were of large topicality.
Moreover, it doesn't describe as human society should be now, but how it actually (according to Evola, ok) was in the past eras.
Another thing that is good pointing out: Evola doesn't invent anything. On the contrary, his weltanschauung cames from the metaphisic of Vedanta, and from the deepest roots of ancient greek culture.
His sense of Sacre, instead comes from the ancient romanity, and this - yes - could sound a little fascist...
However, before criticizing, it would be better to get the right informations - and the right perspective, of course.
Probably, reading only this book isn't enough. I think that one should read "Read the tiger" (written many years later) too, if he wants to get a deeper and more updated understanding of Evola.
Al last, it's worthy saying that Evola was never a member of the Fascist Party.
