East & West collects eighteen essays and reviews in East-West comparative philosophy and religion written by Julius Evola for the journal East & West. Evola covers an astonishing array of traditions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Zen, Tantrism, Yoga, Vedanta, Taoism, Stoicism, and Existentialism; such thinkers as René Guénon, Ernst Jünger, Mircea Eliade, Sri Aurobindo, Meister Eckhart, F. W. J. Schelling, Martin Heidegger, Karl Jaspers, and C. G. Jung; and such topics as suicide, psychology, sexual magic, and the Egyptian and Tibetan Books of the Dead. Evola’s goal is not simply to identify superficial doctrinal parallels between Eastern and Western traditions, but to use these comparisons to uncover their common root, the one Tradition that underlies the many traditions, which is the central focus of his work.

    Great, but when will The World in Flames by Yockey be available?

      I hope to have the editing wrapped up within the next few weeks, then it will come out shortly after that. I apologize for the delay, but it’s entailed a lot of work, plus I’ve had others things I’ve had to do concurrently with it.
