Julius Evola

Julius Evola, 1898–1974, was an Italian philosopher and esotericist who became one of the major exponents of the Traditionalist school of René Guénon. From the 1920s to 1945, Evola hoped that Italian Fascism, the Romanian Iron Guard, and German National Socialism could offer both a critique and rectification of the problems of the modern world consistent with Traditionalism. After the disaster of 1945, Evola withdrew from active political engagement, but his teachings continued to influence subsequent generations of thinkers and political actors on the Right, including the European and North American New Right movements. His books include Revolt Against the Modern World (1934), Heathen Imperialism (1928), Introduction to Magic: Rituals and Practical Techniques for the Magus (1929), The Hermetic Tradition: Symbols and Teachings of the Royal Art (1931), The Mystery of the Grail: Initiation and Magic in the Quest for the Spirit (1937), The Doctrine of Awakening: The Attainment of Self-Mastery According to the Earliest Buddhist Texts (1943), The Yoga of Power: Tantra, Shakti, and the Secret Way (1949), Men Among the Ruins: Post-War Reflections of a Radical Traditionalist (1953), Eros and the Mysteries of Love: The Metaphysics of Sex (1958), Ride the Tiger: A Survival Manual for the Aristocrats of the Soul (1961), The Path of Cinnabar: An Intellectual Autobiography (1963), Fascism Viewed from the Right (1964), Meditations on the Peaks: Mountain Climbing as Metaphor for the Spiritual Quest (1974), and Metaphysics of War: Battle, Victory, and Death in the World of Tradition (2007).

A “Castle of the Order”

At Ordensburg Sonthofen

At Ordensburg Sonthofen

1,535 words

Trans. anonymous

Krössinsee (Pomerania), August 1939

In a kind of immense field opening up in the dense and unbroken mass of the Nordic forest, against the backdrop of the metallic colors of two large lakes, under a sky made particularly lofty by this constant horizontality and straightness, which, so to speak, constitutes the style of this Pomeranian landscape, stands a group of buildings. They are a singular mixture of the primordial, the archaic, and the modern. Read more …

The “Napolas”

MellerEagle1,325 words

Trans. Anonymous

We believe it will be of interest to provide an account of some new Germanic initiatives, designed to take over in a particular political form the tasks of “qualitative” education, which in the preceding era were mainly entrusted to a few private institutions. Read more …

Israel: Its Past, Its Future

3,755 wordslove-in-autumn-simeon-solomon

Trans. Anonymous

A work that definitely ought be brought to the attention of all scholars of the Jewish question, and, in general, of those who follow the anti-Semitic debate, is Herman de Vries de Heekelingen’s very recently published book: Israël, son passé, son avenir (Paris: Perrin, 1937). Indeed, few other publications have presented the essence of the Jewish problem with such clarity, such objectivity, and with such wealth of documentation.  Read more …

Biological Youth & Political Youth

1,299 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

YouthA frequently discussed issue among Right-wing circles is the new generation and its relations with the previous one; “revolutionary” youth in relation to the men and ideas of the Fascist period. Some, in this regard, believe that the same phenomenon is met with here that can be observed more generally: the new generation no longer understands the generation that preceded it, the accelerated pace of events having interposed between the one and the other a mental distance much larger than that which in other times normally would have separated them.  Read more …

The Hegemony of the White Races

1,514 words

AN00440360_001_lTrans. anonymous

The problem of the origins, the foundations and the future destiny of the global hegemony of the white race is, of course, among the most exciting issues of today. We have in our hands a newly published large volume by Wahrhold Drascher, who, thoroughly knowledgeable, comprehensively informed and with an acute historical sense, takes on precisely this subject (Die Vorherrschaft der weissen Rasse, Berlin, 1936).

René Guénon & Integral Traditionalism

3,008 words


Translated by G. A. Malvicini

Elsewhere (in La Destra, in May 1972), we have discussed the necessary relationship of an authentic, non-makeshift Right with the concept of Tradition. In the sense discussed there, references to authors with a traditional orientation may be useful in dealing with certain complex problems. Here, however, we wish to provide an account of the ideas of René Guénon (1886-1951), who was regarded as the proponent of “integral Traditionalism.”  Read more …

Intelligent Stupidity

André Martins de Barros, The Scholar

André Martins de Barros, The Scholar

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

The term “intelligent stupidity” was coined by a distinguished representative of traditional thought, F. Schuon (although G. Bernanos had already used an analogous expression, l’intelligence des sots, and another Frenchman had written that “le drame de notre temps, c’est que la bêtise se soit mise à penser” [the drama of our time is that stupidity has started thinking]), to characterize a form of intellectuality that has come to dominate large sectors of modern culture, and which is strongly represented in Italy.

Power & Infantilism


Werner Sombart

1,385 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

Werner Sombart is an author who deserves to be studied more than he currently is. Sombart furnishes an example of a serious method for studying socio-economic phenomena, one that is far removed from the deformations and biases of materialist sociology (especially of the Marxist type). For Sombart, even economic life is composed of a body and a soul. Read more …

Subliminal Influences

2,924 words

TVTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

We have already had the occasion to point to the illusoriness of the claim that modern man, in general, has achieved an autonomy and self-consciousness he previously lacked. This illusion can in part be explained by the fact that attention today is primarily directed towards external conditions, to the disappearance of certain material limits to the freedom of the individual — Read more …

The “Love of the Distant”

1,065 words

fri_wandTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

In the domain of inner reactions and characterology, two basic forms may be distinguished. They can be designated, respectively, with the expressions “love of the close” and “love of the distant” (Nietzsche’s “Liebe der Ferne”). In the former case, one is attracted to that which is close to one, in the second, to what is distant. The former is related to “democracy” in the broadest, and especially the existential sense; the second is related to a higher human type, found mostly in the world of Tradition.  Read more …
