“Without weakening and compromise we oppose the lowering of the spiritual level, as it has been elevated into a system by contemporary man…We are reacting against the loss of all higher meaning in life; against the materialization, socialization, and standardization to which everything is subjected…
We want to be a danger, a challenge, and an indictment…of all that is weak and directed toward compromising solutions, and which stands enslaved by prevailing opinion and small-minded adaptations to the moment…the unmoving protest against the tyranny of the economic and the social that insolently permeates everything, and against the decline of any higher viewpoint into the most pitiable humanism.”
– Julius Evola
Aristokratia II continues to work with philosophy outside of the average readers comfort zone; conjuring forbidden ideas from the past and creating new heresies for the future. Unapologetically and without compromise, Aristokratia II takes the reader deep into a world of scathing criticism, aimed at the contemporary apocalypse created by a ‘post-modern world’. Here, new idols and new heresies have been created in the post-modern world; new tablets to break and new values to inscribe.
Aristokratia looks to a world in which the restoration of the traditional is the most reactionary act, and the greatest revolt, perceiving the modern world as one of confinement and stifling conformity of thought where the greatest sin is to question and to think.
Aristokratia Volume II concentrates on the work of the Italian philosopher Julius Evola, providing in-depth studies of his work. The book also features articles relating to Friedrich Nietzsche, Nicholas Gómez Dávila, Fernando Pessoa, Plato, Kautilya/Chanakya and general philosophy.
“We are in opposition to a certain mythos: the one that wants to turn spirituality and culture into a realm that is dependent on politics. We, on the other hand, claim that it is politics that must be dependent on spirituality and culture” – Julius Evola, La Torre
