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).

The Mirror of the Jewish Soul:
Otto Weininger on the Jewish Question

2,894 words

Otto Weininger

One of the most interesting, and yet least known, profiles of the Jewish soul was sketched several years before the First World War by Otto Weininger. Its importance lies in its superiority over the stereotyped formulas of the majority of militant anti-Semites, and in its effort to define the Jewish problem in universal and spiritual terms, prior to being a national, social, or even strictly racial one.

O nacionálně politických výchovných ústavech „Napola“

Za hlavní úkol si školy Napola kladly výchovu člověka „v národního socialistu, zdatného tělem i duší pro službu národu a státu“.

English version here

Považujeme za vhodné zabývat se na tomto místě několika novými německými iniciativami, vytvořenými s úmyslem převzít jistým politickým způsobem úkoly „kvalitativní“ výchovy, které byly v předchozí éře svěřeny několika málo soukromým institucím. Začneme nástinem tzv. „Napol.“ Read more …

Judaism in the Ancient World

“L’ebraismo nel mondo antico,La Vita Italiana, July 1938
Trans. Das Gletscherkreuz

One of the tactical arguments most commonly used against those who bring up the Jewish problem today, is that anti-Semitism is a mere fad, an imported ideology, an attempt to emulate German racism and Nazism, something which has no real place in our country. Read more …

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 …

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

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

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).
