About the Author

Julius Evola (1898-1974) has been one of the most misunderstood and controversial authors of the twentieth century. Born in Rome, Evola began his pursuit of truth as a Dadaist painter and an Idealist philosopher, but quickly lost his taste for modernism and moved on to metaphysics, religion, and the occult. Encountering the work of René Guénon, who became a lifelong friend, Evola embraced his concept of the Primordial Tradition and his critique of the modern world. Believing that Tradition was an idea which should encompass the social as well as the spiritual world, Evola saw some hope for a remedy to the ills of modernity in Fascism, although he never joined the Party, and his writings on the subject were frequently critical. After 1945, Evola remained aloof from politics, and attempted to define the most effective stance for an inhabitant of the modern age to adopt and still retain something of traditional wisdom. In recent years, Evola's ideas have given rise to a new breed of spiritual seekers and anti-modernists. Arktos has also published his books The Path of Cinnabar (2009), Fascism Viewed from the Right (2013), Notes on the Third Reich (2013), A Traditionalist Confronts Fascism (2015), A Handbook for Right-Wing Youth (2017), Recognitions (2017), The Bow and the Club (2018), and The Myth of the Blood (2018).
