PostRe: ITALY: Julius Evola solipsisy (Ronald Hilton, USA, 12/08/04 2:39 am)
Stanley Payne commended "an excellent book on the exaggerations involved in current concepts of neofascism, It has a fine chapter on Julius Evola". I said Evola was a solipsist, is a person who thinks that one can know nothing but one's own experience, which therefore would make him anathema to a historian like Stanley. A useful insult to be kept in reserve for a person you wish to baffle with your insult. George Sassoon joins in the condemnation of Evola: I looked up Julius Evola on the internet - not, I agree, an authoritative source - and came to the conclusion that he was an utter waste of time and space, not to mention his absurd politics. My reason for this was that he wrote a book on the holy grail, in which I have a literary interest. Fortunately there seems to be nothing in the book of interest for me.
