This compilation of the writings of Baron Julius Evola is designed to give the reader a pragmatic compass for navigating the “corrosive waters” of this world. It presents a selection from his works that steers one towards higher existence while remaining engaged in this world on the frontline of the cultural war.
These selections show the obstacles to be overcome and the means of their overcoming. They represent a map of immanent transcendence – not as escapism into a false heaven through pacifistic cowardice, but as an armory from which one can gird himself to fight against the current of disintegration and its agents.
They assist the reader in knowing the enemy and in knowing himself, to “become who he is” – an aristocrat of the soul, an Aryan.
