phf: and the introductions to eliade's book don't go into apologism (unlike evola books, all the english translations require an mandatory disclaimer, that he was a racist, but only a little!1)
phf: well, tbh i only just learned that the two knew each other. evola is mentioned in eliade's books, but only in connection to his books on subj, like "the yoga of power" and his study of pali canon
r0nin-: phf: i thought dark enlightenment completely discredited itself, by trying to julius evola while neckbeard

r0nin-: any familiarity with evola
phf: (this started because i couldn't find a printed version of julius evola's "ride the tiger" in russian translation. i found a pirated version, that i figured i can just print through lulu. i still haven't produced a pdf version that doesn't rely on the whole 6gb tex distribution)
mircea_popescu: i very much doubt any english speaker read enough evola to distinguish him from, whatever, eco
asciilifeform: evola sold on amazon? tel aviv shits dodecahedral bricks; nazi kidnapping squad STILL AROUND, regenesisblocked -- snoar
asciilifeform: dunno that we have any evola fans present.

assbot: Julius Evola | American "Civilisation" ... ( http://bit.ly/1O75L8z )
phf: on technical merits i thought it was kind of like if evola fans started writing their own operating system in INTERCAL (with apologies to don woods) hosted on top of brainfuck vm, a dadaist project where impracticality and absurd were the main driving force behind decisions. the reality turned out to be a lot more banal
ag3nt_zer0: trinque: yes. one is better off reading wittgestein or heidegger over the theosophical trash... but imo guenon, schuon, coomaraswami (ananda) and evola are infinitely better to read than those philosophers you mentioned - and they are not at all aligned with theosophy - except for guenons youthful foray into it as mentioned
phf: ag3nt_zer0: i couldn't get past his west vs. east chapter, or slightly after. his understanding of eastern tradition is dodgy (i see same issue with evola by the way), since he exists in the time after theosophists's liberal translations of sacred texts, but before people like mircea eliade or theos bernard had a chance to verify with the locals whether or the understanding was correct. (and long before easterners themselves started making
ag3nt_zer0: he's right up there with evola and guenon
asciilifeform: evola? prolly smelled too much of gestapo, triggered anaphylactic allergic shock in mr o
asciilifeform: evola was a money man
mircea_popescu: smart gedankenorwell is evola, yes.
asciilifeform: evola ?
ag3nt_zer0: mircea_popescu: but you would consider evola "silly romanticism?
ascii_field went once on an evola kick
mircea_popescu: evola, recently mentioned here, very much in the same vein
ag3nt_zer0: interesting - have never heard of Mirandola referred to as a core "traditionalist" writer - Guenon, Schuon, Evola, Burkhardt and others - but not Mirandola. From a nothing read I can see a similarity in their attempt to legitimize these modalities of thought but I read that his ideas were influential in renaissance humanism which guenon appears to be highly critical of... ?

asciilifeform: speaking of, mircea_popescu fan of j. evola ?
asciilifeform: decimation: carlyle, evola, ..., ..., limonov, moldy... if one were to spit out all the folks who complained about kinglessness, freenode will boot you for flooding
radan: and evola, if you want to get into the metaphysics of it
