Revolt Against the Modern World- Episode 1: Foreword

Welcome to Episode 1 of the Revolt Against the Modern World series, based on Julius Evola's book of the same name.

Our aim with this series is much the same as Evola's aim in writing the book: we wish to lay down a testimony in order to preserve this ancient wisdom for future generations. We remain connected to the World of Tradition by only the most fragile, frayed thread and it is imperative to preserve as much of it as possible as we move through this dark age of history.

In this episode, we explore the foreword of the book, covering some concepts that will be essential to understand before moving ahead in our journey to understand what it means to revolt against the modern world.

Please find some supplemental information below.

While it is not necessary to read the book in order to enjoy this series, we do highly recommend it, as it is a great book! "Revolt Against the Modern World" can be found as a free pdf in various places online, or can be purchased from most major booksellers. This series is intended to be both an introduction for those new to Evola and as a companion to the book.

For those desiring supplemental reading that may enhance your experience of reading the book and watching these films, I strongly recommend, at minimum, Plato's "Republic" (even a Cliff's Notes version- however, please note that most modern interpretations of Plato fail to fully understand his esoteric meanings).

For an example of modern science fiction referencing non-temporal aliens, see the pilot episode of Star Trek: Deep Space 9, "Emissary" in which Captain Sisko visits the Prophets for the first time and attempts to explain linear time to them.

Watching or reading Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" series may also be helpful, as it provides many excellent examples that have their origins in the World of Tradition and we will sometimes use examples from this story to illustrate certain points.

Useful terms to know:
Transcendent: independent of the material universe

Ontology: the branch of metaphysics that studies the nature of existence or being as such, or loosely, metaphysics

Epistemology: a branch of philosophy that investigates the origin, nature, and limits, of human knowledge

Inductive reasoning: Inductive reasoning, for those unfamiliar with the process, allows for the conclusion drawn to be false, unlike with deductive reasoning that relies heavily on syllogistic logic, where the premises must lead to a conclusion that can be conclusively proven or disproven. Inductive reasoning is essentially making broad generalisations from specific observances, so it leaves room for exceptions.

Plato's Theory of Forms: the idea that non-physical forms (essences) existing in the metaphysical realm represent the most accurate reality and that the material world is an imitation of this metaphysical reality.
