Réflexions sur la race et l’esprit

3,463 words

Introduction

Pendant des années j’avais personnellement étudié la race, avec d’autres questions qui concernent la Droite Européenne, et j’avais trouvé une compréhension déficiente de la question chez d’autres auteurs, mais chez moi aussi. Il y avait aussi trop de confiance dans la vieille méthodologie et science (en fait, une obsession presque fétichiste pour celle-ci), et avec le temps je compris qu’il fallait l’abandonner en faveur d’une nouvelle compréhension de la race.

Le primordial et l’eternel :
La Tradition dans la pensée de Martin Heidegger et de Julius Evola

Martin Heidegger

8,727 words

L’opposé de la tradition, dit l’historien Dominique Venner, n’est pas la modernité, une notion illusoire, mais le nihilisme [1]. D’après Nietzsche, qui développa le concept, le nihilisme vient avec la mort des dieux et « la répudiation radicale de [toute] valeur, sens et désirabilité » [2]. Read more …

Mulher Absoluta:
Um Esclarecimento do Pensamento de Evola em relação às Mulheres

3,482 words

English original here

Um dos conceitos centrais da filosofia de gênero de Julius Evola é a distinção entre homem absoluto e mulher absoluta. Mas ele raramente dá definições explícitas desses termos. Homem e mulher absolutos podem ser associados a Formas Platônicas, assim defini-los pode ser tão difícil quanto definir Justiça, Verdade, ou Amor.

La metaphysique de la guerre

1,366 words

Il y a un fond commun à toutes les civilisations basées sur la tradition, remontant à des siècles dans le passé et incluant géographiquement les civilisations nées en Asie, en Europe, et même jusqu’en Amérique centrale et en Amérique du Sud. La base de la civilisation traditionnelle est la création de l’ordre à partir du chaos, comme manifestation cosmique et divine. Read more …

Man’s Devolution Across Cycles:
Radical Traditionalism on Anthropogenesis

4,762 words

Hieronymus Bosch, "Garden of Earthly Delights," c. 1490–1510, center panel, detail

Concerning the genesis of modern humanity, there are two primary theories that receive credence in anthropological circles. One is the “Out of Africa” hypothesis, which argues that today’s humans are the evolved descendants of a primitive race of hominids that, 70,000 years ago, departed its homeland in Africa and spread across the globe. Upon entering Asia and Europe, these archaic humans displaced the indigenous Neanderthals through violent conflict and higher birthrates. They then adapted to their environments and gradually morphed into today’s human races through a process called localized evolution.

Julius Evola’s Concept of Race:
A Racism of Three Degrees

4,364 words

Spanish translation here

Since the rise of physical anthropology, the definition of the term “race” has undergone several changes. In 1899, William Z. Ripley stated that, “Race, properly speaking, is responsible only for those peculiarities, mental or bodily, which are transmitted with constancy along the lines of direct physical descent.”[1]

The Eldritch Evola

2,010 words

And thus, as a closer and still closer intimacy admitted me more unreservedly into the recesses of his spirit, the more bitterly did I perceive the futility of all attempt at cheering a mind from which darkness, as if an inherent positive quality, poured forth upon all objects of the moral and physical universe, in one unceasing radiation of gloom. — E. A. Poe, “The Fall of the House of Usher”

Against Nihilism:
Julius Evola’s “Traditionalist” Critique of Modernity

Julius Evola

5,326 words

With the likes of Oswald Spengler, whose Decline he translated for an Italian readership, and Jose Ortega y Gasset, Julius Evola (1898–1974) stands as one of the notably incisive mid-Twentieth Century critics of modernity. Like Spengler and Ortega, Evola understood himself to owe a formative debt to Friedrich Nietzsche, but more forcefully than Spengler or Ortega, Evola saw the limitations – the contradictions and inconsistencies–in Nietzsche’s thinking.

The Kali Yuga:
René Guénon’s Critique of Modernity

René Guénon, 1886–1951

5,312 words

The Conservative critique of modernity is by no means a recent phenomenon; it begins rather with the responders to Jean-Jacques Rousseau and his Jacobin followers in the late Eighteenth Century. It is sufficient in this regard to mention the names of Edmund Burke (1729–1797) and Joseph de Maistre (1753–1821) and of their successors, S. T. Coleridge (1772–1834) and François-René de Chateaubriand (1768–1848), to suggest the range and richness of immediately post-revolutionary conservative discourse. Read more …

Freemasonry & the Occult War

1,569 words

Rembrandt, “The Philosopher in Meditation,” 1632

Julius Evola proposed that we in the West are in the midst of an intergenerational “occult war” that is the underlying cause of historical developments. Evola frequently explored exceedingly esoteric subjects. His proposition that the world is ruled by these shadowy forces is at once conspiratorial, mystical, and lacking in empirical verifiability. It doesn’t seem like something skeptics should take seriously.

Evola’s Anti-Semitism

2,483 words

Czech translation here

When Julius Evola, one of the leading twentieth-century critics of Judeo-liberal civilization, worked out his racial theory during the 1930s, the principal inspiration for anti-Semitic thought was The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Purportedly stolen from an occult Lodge, the Protocols were a report of twenty-four secret meetings held by the leaders of international Jewry, as they attempted to devise a plan for world domination.

Traditionalism: This is the Enemy!

1,705 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

In the circles of what we might euphemistically call the “revolutionary right,” or more broadly the “anti-liberal right,” one can observe the recurrent rise—like outbreaks of acne—of what one can only call “metaphysical traditionalism.”

Absolute Woman:
A Clarification of Evola’s Thoughts on Women

3,470 words

Portuguese translation here

One of the central concepts of Julius Evola’s philosophy of gender is the distinction between absolute man and absolute woman. But he seldom gives explicit definitions of these terms. Absolute man and woman can be likened to Platonic Forms, thus defining them can be as difficult as defining Justice, Truth, or Love.

The term “absolute woman” inspires more controversy than “absolute man.” Read more …
