Read full description of the books:
Julius Evola’s final major work, which examines the prototype of the human being who can give absolute meaning to his or her life in a world of dissolution
• Presents a powerful criticism of the idols, structures, theories, and illusions of our modern age
• Reveals how to transform destructive processes into inner liberation
The organizations and institutions that, in a traditional civilization and society, would have allowed an individual to realize himself completely, to defend the principal values he recognizes as his own, and to structure his life in a clear and unambiguous way, no longer exist in the contemporary world. Everything that has come to predominate in the modern world is the direct antithesis of the world of Tradition, in which a society is ruled by principles that transcend the merely human and transitory.
Ride the Tiger presents an implacable criticism of the idols, structures, theories, and illusions of our dissolute age examined in the light of the inner teachings of indestructible Tradition. Evola identifies the type of human capable of “riding the tiger,” who may transform destructive processes into inner liberation. He offers hope for those who wish to reembrace Traditionalism.

Read information about the authorJulius Evola, also known as Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola, was an Italian philosopher, esotericist, occultist, author, artist, poet, political activist, soldier. During his trial in 1951, Evola denied being a Fascist and instead referred to himself as a "superfascist".
Evola was admired by the Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini. He idolized the Nazi Schutzstaffel ("SS"). He admired SS head Heinrich Himmler, whom he knew personally. Evola spent World War II working for the Nazi Sicherheitsdienst.
Evola was the "chief ideologue" of Italy's terrorist radical right after World War II. He continues to influence contemporary neo-fascist movements.
Evola’s thought can be considered one of the most radical and consistent anti-egalitarian, anti-liberal, anti-democratic, and anti-popular systems in the twentieth century. It is a singular (though not necessarily original) blend of several schools and traditions, including German idealism, Eastern doctrines, traditionalism, and the all-embracing Weltanschauung of the interwar conservative Revolution with which Evola had a deep personal involvement.
