Барон Ю́лиус Э́вола — итальянский философ-эзотерик, писатель, поэт, художник, культуролог и политический деятель. Представитель интегрального традиционализма, автор ряда работ по эзотеризму и оккультизму. Ряд исследователей рассматривает его как идеолога неофашизма. Работы Эволы оказали влияние на многих представителей ультраправой идеологии в Европе и других частях мира, а также вдохновили ряд террористических организаций, действовавших в Италии в 1970-х годах.

„Неравенство людей — это настолько очевидная вещь, что не хочется тратить слова на ее доказательство: для того, чтобы понять это, надо лишь раскрыть глаза.“

„Каждый обладает свободой настолько, насколько он того заслуживает, в зависимости от своего склада, личного достоинства либо исполняемых обязанностей, а отнюдь не на основании своей элементарной абстрактной принадлежности к человеческому роду или «гражданам».“

„America... has created a 'civilization' that represents an exact contradiction of the ancient European tradition. It has introduced the religion of praxis and productivity; it has put the quest for profit, great industrial production, and mechanical, visible, and quantitative achievements over any other interest. It has generated a soulless greatness of a purely technological and collective nature, lacking any background of transcendence, inner light, and true spirituality. America has [built a society where] man becomes a mere instrument of production and material productivity within a conformist social conglomerate“

„Neither pleasure nor pain should enter as motives when one must do what must be done.“ Ride the Tiger: A Survival Manual for the Aristocrats of the Soul

„My principles are only those that, before the French Revolution, every well-born person considered sane and normal.“

„The blood of the heroes is closer to God than the ink of the philosophers and the prayers of the faithful.“ Revolt Against the Modern World

„Being and stability are regarded by our contemporaries as akin to death; they cannot live unless they act, fret, or distract themselves with this or that. Their spirit (provided we can still talk about a spirit in their case) feeds only on sensations and on dynamism, thus becoming the vehicle for the incarnation of darker forces.“ Revolt Against the Modern World

„For the authentic revolutionary conservative, what really counts is to be faithful not to past forms and institutions, but rather to principles of which such forms and institutions have been particular expressions, adequate for a specific period of time and in a specific geographical area.“ Men Among the Ruins: Post-War Reflections of a Radical Traditionalist

„Worldview" is not based on books; it is an internal form, which at times in a person with little education is expressed much more brightly, than in some other "intellectual" or scientist.“

„Nothing is further from the truth than the claim that the American soul is 'open-minded' and unbiased; on the contrary, it is ridden with countless taboos of which people are sometimes not even aware.“ Revolt Against the Modern World

„It is necessary to have “watchers” at hand who will bear witness to the values of Tradition in ever more uncompromising and firm ways, as the anti-traditional forces grow in strength. Even though these values cannot be achieved, it does not mean that they amount to mere “ideas.” These are MEASURES…. Let people of our time talk about these things with condescension as if they were anachronistic and anti-historical; we know that this is an alibi for their defeat. Let us leave modern men to their “truths” and let us only be concerned about one thing: to keep standing amid a world of ruins.“ Revolt Against the Modern World

„This kind of renunciation, in fact, has often been the strength, born of necessity, of the world's disinherited, of those who do not fit in with their surroundings or with their own body or with their own race or tradition and who hope, by means of renunciation, to assure for themselves a future world where, to use a Nietzschean expression, the inversion of all values will occur.“

„The Americans are the living refutation of the Cartesian axiom, "I think, therefore I am": Americans do not think, yet they are.“

„Nothing is further from the truth than the claim that the American soul is ‘open-minded’ and unbiased; on the contrary, it is ridden with countless taboos of which people are sometimes not even aware.“ Revolt Against the Modern World

„But, the true reason for the success of such new expositions [translated Eastern religious texts] is to be found where they are the most accommodating, least rigid, least severe, most vague, and ready to come to easy terms with the prejudices and weaknesses of the modern world. Let everyone have the courage to look deeply into himself and to see what it is that he really wants.“

„Modern man has not only to fight against materialism, but must also defend himself from the snares and allures of false supernaturalism. His defense will be firm and effective only if he is capable of returning to the origins, of assimilating the ancient traditions, and then of relying upon the ascesis to carry out the task of reestablishing his inner condition. For it is through this that these traditions will reveal to him their deepest and perennially real content and show him, step by step, the path.“ The Doctrine of Awakening: The Attainment of Self-Mastery According to the Earliest Buddhist Texts
