This Volume contains a selection of articles, excerpts and writings written by Julius Evola during all his long and extreme life. Julius Evola, also known as Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola (19 May 1898 - 11 June 1974) was an Italian philosopher and esoteric scholar. Since his death, his writings have influenced right-wing, reactionary and conservative political thought not only in his native Italy, but throughout continental Europe and, increasingly, the English-speaking world. Nevertheless, Evola should not be considered primarily as a political thinker, but rather as an exponent of the wider Traditionalist School that encompasses the work of such individuals as Ren Gu non, Titus Burckhardt and Frithjof Schuon.
