It's bretty gud

>. . . What should be emphasized is that if there ever was a civilization of slaves on a grand scale, the one in which we are living is it. No traditional civilization ever saw such great masses of people condemned to perform shallow, impersonal, automatic jobs; in the contemporary slave system the counterparts of figures such as lords or enlightened rulers are nowhere to be found. This slavery is imposed subtly through the tyranny of the economic factor and through the absurd structures of a more or less collectivized society. And since the modern view of life in its materialism has taken away from the single individual any possibility of bestowing on his destiny a transfiguring element and seeing in it a sign and a symbol, contemporary 'slavery' should therefore be reckoned as one of the gloomiest and most desperate kinds of all times. It is not a surprise that in the masses of modern slaves the obscure forces of world subversion have found an easy, obtuse instrument to pursue their goals; while in the places where it has already triumphed, the vast Stalinist 'work camps' testify to how the physical and moral subjection of man to the goals of collectivization and of the uprooting of every value of the personality is employed in a methodical and even satanic way."

He was a fake trad who slept with married women (what kind of degenerate even does that?) and generally didn't even act in the direction of the ideals he espoused. He wrote a whole spiel on heroism and the value of war without ever having been in a war himself. He was super into pseudoscientific and pseudohistorical theories about Aryans and the like and it really shows in his writings. He was dumb enough to walk around during Allied carpet bombing so he could have insights or whatever. His greatest achievement in life was inspiring a bunch of knuckleheads in neo-fascist groups to bomb civilian targets during the Italian Years of Lead, and then he pussied out and claimed to denounce authoritarianism and violence whenever the topic came up. The man was a wimp who didn't even come within a mile of standing for his supposed "principles." Guenon was a much more principled man, and his works on traditionalism are just much, much better in general. If you're a non-trad like me, Guenon's works on symbolism are probably more valuable."

This same tired critique is leveled against Nietzche time and time again. To cut a long story short; someone can recognise the ideal without entirely embodying it. Even Guenon was a degenerate at times.

Can't tell if this is a Fasci pretending to be a Commie or not.

Nevertheless more people will read him and he's going to continue to grow popular in that alt-right dark enlightenment circle. It's very appealing to have these guys they can resonate with that talk about how modernity amounts to lost knowledge and truth that the ancient, rosier yesterday peoples possessed while hinting at some taboo hidden truth that these guys can get from reading the "do not read" section of the library.

Both of those things are enticing for a lot of people even if it's easy to disagree with everything else that appeal makes people want to agree with people Evola because of those core beliefs and biases they hold going in.

Well if I'm being honest I can agree wholeheartedly with Hegel and Evola about this and that mystic bullshit but it never has to lead to the same conclusions or same branching thinkers. I don't have to end up in the same camp as Marx or Mussolini, why not take those same premises and end up with the Hindu's or Daoists or other traditionalists? Or Libertarian materialists?

Huh? This sounds kinda silly. Is he holding that race has some sui generis metaphysical properties?
Please explain this supposed metaphysical conception of race. Appart from being politically disaggreable, these traditionalists larping as metaphysicians is what pisses me off. I wouldn't give a shit either way if the only thing I didn't like was their politics. It's calling their hack theories metaphysics that really grinds my gears.
Can anyone explain how Guenon or Evola are metaphysicians. I get that Guenon does engage in metaphysics, what I do not get is how symbols and traditions are metaphysical entites. I could totally get studying the metaphysical properties of such things. It's the claim that they are unique metaphysical terms that I don't like. That's a job for science or phenomenology. Such claims aren't coherent with the Aristotleian tradition of metaphysics. Maybe he isn't making such claims, correct me if-so. It's not like I've read what he had to say about it

Imagine being on this level of retardation.
Let me refute most of your post.

1) There are no sources regarding this 'unmarried women' claim nor that he sired any children 'out of wedlock'. This is a bizarre rumour which I'm sure is only propagated by people who dislike Evola, because there is absolutely no mention of this anywhere, but it is routinely brought up in character assassination.

2) Evola was in the first world war as an artillery officer - Revolt Against The Modern World is in fact dedicated to the battalion that he served in. How uneducated are you?
Nonetheless, one needn't experience firsthand what one writes about, especially considering the book 'Metaphysics of War' that you claim is his 'spiel on heroism' is a book dedicated to revealing the theological and metaphysical qualities *historically* attributed to war from a doctrinal standpoint.

3) Regarding the Aryan 'theories', again, Evola is primarily a researcher, so he is literally just revealing various theories about human involution from a doctrinal view of metaphysics and pre-history - it isn't any different from what the Greeks did.

4) He wasn't the victim of a carpet bombing while walking around, this was a rumour spread in his favour. He was inside a bunker doing research for the SS when it happened."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==11908270 && dateTime=="10/09/18(Tue)22:09:28")

'race as spirit' is the idea that someone can biologically be of one race, but hold to spiritual and therefore behavioral norms of another. spiritual systems (and consequently anti-spiritual systems, like marxism, which also must carry a certain spirit, if 'spirit' exists at all) have deeply embedded racial qualities that brand themselves on their bearer.

Evola himself isn't a 'metaphyscian'. Who even gives him this title?

If you went out of your way to read Evola, you'd realise (like many don't) that he is foremost a researcher who reveals and connects various historical, metaphysical and doctrinal view of life and existence. 80% of his books are him translating and sourcing firsthand religious and occult texts and framing them in a manner that is digestible. The rest of his writings are more or less his opinions on politics. Evola basically has no 'theories' of his own, and he never really claimed to. People think that Evola is great (rightfully) because of the style of his writing, and how scathing his critique of modernity is."

This is the kind of answer I was looking for. Though my particular question about metaphysics was focused on Guenon. I don't get how his work on symbolism and tradition counts as metaphysics. Maybe he didn't claim it did. If-so I'm okay with that, though that seems to be what most of his 'metaphysical' work was about. All of Guenons metaphysically views mostly seem to be adopted from Hindu philsophy, I don't see how he made any original contribution to metaphysics proper unless the study of tradition and symbolism is to be considered metaphysics (it isn't)

I'd say so, at least in regards to his theory of forms. You could call him a pre-eminent metaphyscian as metaphysics proper started with aristole. Same applies to some of the pre-socratics and ancient eastern philsophy.
Unlike the later, I'd say that Plato does systematically fit in to metaphysics proper, as their is sufficient mereological over/underlap in Plato's theory of forms and Aristole's metaphysics(the study of the nature of reality from first principles) to say that that they are part of the same distinct thing.

I'd don't know shit about paramedies so I can't answer that. If it helps you conceptualize metaphysics as a phylogenetic tree. You have different branches for different phylogenies, all the branches share a common ancestry in the human investigation of the nature of reality from first principles. From that common root various unrelated traditions have diversified, so you can picture two branches for eastern and Western philsophy. Let's look at Western philsophy the branch that started with however the first philsopher was, thales iirc. That branches of into metaphysics proper, the tradition of which Aristole's metaphysics can be veiwed as the type-species around Plato. I say Plato can be taxonomically placed here because Aristole's metaphysics has a reflexive, symmetrical relationship to Plato.
I don't really care, this is a question for the history of philsophy. Maybe Plato isn't part of the Aristotleian tradition. Inconsequential, as I already answered your question. Plato is characteristically a metaphysician.

That's a sterotypical gotcha question, own up to it."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==11908772 && dateTime=="10/09/18(Tue)23:52:05")

Let me clarify. The relationship of Plato to metaphysics proper is reflexive, symmetrical, but may be intransitive if we define metaphysics proper as starting with Aristole's nomenclatural staking out of the field, if we define metaphysics proper as starting with Aristole's conceptualization of metaphysics we might be able to say that the relationship is transitive. Though that would entail that all western metaphysics is metaphysics proper. I'm inclined to say the former. I really have no idea, I'm just learning about binary relations and am trying to get the philsophy of them down."

So what's your gripe with Evola? In what manner do you believe his philosophical inquiries to not constitute metaphysics? (Not that he ever claimed to be a metaphysician himself, rather a historian of metaphysical traditions)."

Because it's applied to a concrete object. That's basically the metaphysics of race, which is not the metaphysics of metaphysics. I don't have any gripe in if he doesn't claim it's metaphysics. I do dislike Evola, for the usual reasons.
I potentially have that gripe with Guenon, but I never figured out if I do.
I highly regard metaphysics and do not appreciate it when people are undeservedly put in the same league as the great metaphyscians. Maybe Guenon does, but I certainly haven't seen any reason to justify that judgement. Coincidentally Guenon seems like he might of said some things that I would appreciate, but not about metaphysics."

Yeah man, we've got a problem here. You're implying that it was a concrete object in the first place. It's like saying that Plato's Idea is the abstract instantiation of a concrete form.

"I think I just figured out the problem that I have with Evola.

It's not that he's a reactionary racist only tangentially interested in metaphysics, it's that people make him out to be something more than this. If Evola wasn't grouped with figures like Guenon, Huxley, etc. then I wouldn't mind his strange racial ideas or pathological worship of the masculine, because people wouldn't be inclined to think of these things as being "true metaphysical principles." Instead he would just be another quasi-spiritual writer from the early 20th century, of which there were hundreds.

But nope, because he referred to Buddhism in his works and spoke of the classical gods, he's suddenly considered some sort of authority of divinity and metaphysics, when he's nothing of the sort. This then leads itself to the danger of neo-fascists co-opting metaphysical ideas in order to justify their foul ideologies, because they can refer to his works to give them "spiritual backing", when really any sort of fascism / military worship is just as much embedded (if not more) in samsara than any vague, soulless democracy its railing against."

I asked you first pseudnugget. What does Evola mean by polarity, centrality, solarity?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==11911930 && dateTime=="10/10/18(Wed)15:58:39")

He portrays it as something being somewhat in eternal struggle against both itself and femininity. In a social and individual context, this translates into a strong delineation between the spheres of masculinity and the spheres of femininity, and he takes an unfavourable view at any collective attempt to exalt femininity as being degenerate. He favours promoting a "warrior-ethos" of "exalted, chisled men" as being the "correct" manifestation of transcendence.

>What does Evola mean by polarity, centrality, solarity?
Solarity is the moment of transformation when the orbit of the cosmos reaches its darkest point only to begin returning to the light. On an alchemical level, this can be seen as the point in which the soul has finally shed its attachment to darkness and begins the process of enlightenment and exaltation.

Centrality is the concept that awakening does not revolve around some external "source" of enlightenment, but a being's correct identification with its inner self as the source of all knowledge and illumination.

I'm not familiar with polarity."

You're absolutely right, which is why they're "masculine" and "feminine" principles, not "male" and "female." A man can embody the feminine, and a woman can embody the masculine. However, it can be said that men have an easier time embodying the masculine, and women have an easier time embodying the feminine.

>not to mention needing the feminine to feel warmth and comfort only reinforces what Evola says about man's dependence on an Other
We are literally dependent on an Other. The very fact is we only exist because an Other (our mother and father) decided to have sex and created us. Likewise, unless you are a 100% emotionless stoic hermit living in the middle of Alaska, your ability to survive in this world is dependent on others (and even then, I imagine that hermit would naturally form relationships with the animals around him, as a way to maintain emotional intimacy.)"

It would be the presence of the masculine and feminine working together in balance, not one trying to exalt itself above or dominate the other. It's the same thing for men, a truly exalted man would have both his masculine and feminine properties aligned and working in balance, being able to be firm and orderly when necessary (masculine) and quiet and considerate (feminine) when necessary.

And I never will. First off I despise racism, more still when people try to justify their racism with reasoning. I see the most dislikable people on this website use Evola to justify their uglyness. As if I would read something I already find so repugnant. It's smells like shit and looks like shit, I don't need to taste it to make a strong inference that it is in fact shit.
I see all these pathetic onions boys try to use 'traditionalism' to justify their ugly racism. That's a slave-morality. There is nothing rational about racism, when racists are racists simply because they are distressed by different people, like a racist child, they are at least honest. If I am to take what you cretinous Evolatards say at face value, Evola thought race was some sort of spiritual connection between people. Yes that is not biological, it is even more psuedoscientific than biological racism.
So not only is he attempting to justify racism, he is trying to rationalize it with some sort of spiritual science of race.
I assume he goes on to claim that some races are inferior to others, yes?
And he uses this spiritual conception of race to do it, yes?
So not only is he starting out with afactual assumptions. He is attempting to use his afactual science, or whatever he wants to call it to make value judgements about afactual data.
Any scientist will tell you that science has nothing about the moral worth of what the science describes. That's like saying systematics says vertabrates are superior to myriapods because they are more complex organisms, absurd!
The only thing that justifies racism is feeling, and that feeling only applies to the judge. No science, even psuedoscientific "spiritual sciences" can say anything in the way of good or bad, they only describe characters, classes, and laws.
Not only is this apparently a highly obfuscated psusdoscience. It's trying to claims to provide deontological values judgements about race. Such deductions are not possible, or if you were to look at it in a modal logic, they arent even concievable.
Fallacious reasoning from false premises.
I didn't need to say any of that to explain why I hate Evola and his fans. I hate them because they are racist scumbags that make the world a shittier place to live in.

If his spiritual races have no biological grounding, why did he advocate for eugenics?
He was a racist in the everyday non-spirtual sense as evidenced in Wikipedia here:

>Evola spoke of "inferior non-European races".[8] Peter Merkl wrote that "Evola was never prepared to discount the value of blood altogether". Evola wrote: "a certain balanced consciousness and dignity of race can be considered healthy" in a time where "the exaltation of the negro and all the rest, anticolonialist psychosis and integrationist fanaticism [are] all parallel phenomena in the decline of Europe and the West."[46] While not totally against race-mixing, in 1957, Evola wrote an article attributing the perceived acceleration of American decadence to the influence of "negroes" and the opposition to segregation. Furlong noted that this article is "among the most extreme in phraseology of any he wrote, and exhibits a degree of intolerance that leaves no doubt as to his deep prejudice against black people."[6]

>For his spiritual interpretation of the different racial psychologies, Evola found the work of German race theorist Ludwig Ferdinand Clauss invaluable. Like Evola, Clauss believed that physical race and spiritual race could diverge as a consequence of miscegenation.[10] Evola's racism included racism of the body, soul, and spirit, giving primacy to the latter factor, writing that "races only declined when their spirit failed.
Or are the authors of the Wikipedia entry lying? The spiritual nonsense is a psuedoscientific justification of racism. It's no surprise that someone who is anti-science would come up with such a lame ascientific theory. Scientific theories are just like any theory except for that they are grounded in factual deductions. Evola's theories are grounded in dogshit and supposition. If they aren't scientific they 100% do not provide what they claim to provide. You retards can go back to believing the earth revolves around the sun if you want to. Start talking about burning people at the stake for saying otherwise and you deserve to be massacured. Like Evola, I suspect you sissy traditionalist larpers-who have probably never even fleshed a hide-are simply too stupid to understand the value of science."

No I'm not, racism is disgusting. Right wing ideaologes are disgusting. Blacks could be low IQ on average. I don't give a fuck, if that is true in a possible world, there is absolutely no way to deduce anything like superiority or inferiority from such a premise. superiority is a subjective quality of feeling, catagorical superiority is but a fantasy. My IQ is higher than 99.5% of the population. If I felt that made me a better person than 99.5% of the population I would deserve to get the arrogant shit kicked out of me. For simular reasons, people who espose any sort of "scientific" racism deserve to be curb stomped."

You seem to be incapable of understanding my argument: Europeans are superior in European modes of being, Africans are superior in African modes of being. European global dominance has created the unfortunate circumstance that other races are compelled to adopt European ways, which dooms them to perpetual relative inferiority. It's a tragedy, not something I celebrate. But I also don't believe in wasting resources on trying to bring them up to a minimal European standard."
