Remembering Julius Evola:
May 19, 1898–June 11, 1974

422 words

Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born on this day in 1898 in Rome. Along with René Guénon, Evola is one of the writers who has most influenced the metapolitical outlook and project of Counter-Currents, which is reflected in the fact that Evola is one of the most-tagged writers on this website. In commemoration of his birthday, I wish to draw your attention to the following resources.

Counter-Currents has published the following writings of Evola’s:

The following articles deal exclusively or principally with Evola or employ him as the main frame of reference:

For those wishing to read Evola’s books, I would suggest three different starting points. For those who want to jump in at the deep end, begin with Evola’s magnum opus, Revolt Against the Modern World. For those who want to wade in, I recommend starting with one of Evola’s slimmest, most beautiful, and most seductive works, Meditations on the Peaks: Mountain Climbing as Metaphor for the Spiritual Quest. For those who prefer to begin with an overview of Evola’s life and works, I recommend his The Path of Cinnabar: An Intellectual Autobiography.

I recommend the following websites on Evola:

Finally, as a treat, here is a video of the elderly Evola being interviewed in French on Dadaism.
