Revolt Against the Modern World

Revolt Against the Modern World

"Revolt Against the Modern World: Politics, Religion, and Social Order in the Kali Yuga" ("Rivolta contro il mondo moderno") is a book by the fascist philosopher and racial theorist Julius Evola, [Aaron Gillette, "Racial Theories in Fascist Italy" (London: Routledge, 2002).] first published in Italy, in 1934. Widely seen as his magnum opus, it is an elucidation of his Traditionalist world view.

The first part of the book deals with the concepts of the Traditional world; its knowledge of the bridge between the earthly and the transcendent worlds. The second part deals with the modern world, contrasting its characteristics with those of traditional societies: from politics and institutions to views on life and death. Evola denounces the regressive aspects of modern civilisation (using Tradition as a normative principle).

"Rivolta contro il mondo moderno" was published in Milan by Hoepli in 1934. In 1969 a revised and augmented edition was published. Translated into English by Guido Stucco (from the 1969 edition), it was published by Inner Traditions in 1995 and as a 375-page hardcover (ISBN 0-89281-506-X). It has also been translated into German, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Hungarian. [ [] ]
