An excellent introduction to the 'world of Tradition', with all that it includes, such as the view of symbolism, hierarchy, duty, honour, ages of the world, decline of the West etc.

A primer for people who do not dare to tackle Julius Evola's 'Revolt Against the Modern World'. Finally it also contains instructions on how to LIVE the traditional life, with a detachment to the result of your actions.

The only failure in this book is that it is way too short to adequately deal with the issues raised

This book is the ideal primer if you are not very acquainted with Traditionalism yet since it deals with all the basic foundations its build on. Its very condensed and a pleasant read. The added value of this book can be found in the second part which deals with living the Traditional way in practice. The only reason that I only rate it 3 starts is that the book is to small - for militants this will be more an asset - but for me there was to little room for more in dept dealing with some topics.

This book is a mixed bag to me first its short and to the point which I love and I love how the book comes off as Polarizing but theres things that I agree with (and when I agree I agree strongly), theres things that I disagree with (and when I disagree I come with a bit of recoil, perhaps its me being a Catholic, pride or perhaps its just a question of learning from 20th Century).

Luckily theres much in the book that can be integrated for a Practicing and Traditional Catholic, since this type o

مقدمة صغيرة لعالم التقليد
يشمل الكتاب ملخص أغلب الأفكار التقليدية ويقدم طريقة للعيش وفقها رغم عدم تفرعه ومناقشته لهذه الأفكار بشكل مفصل إلا أنه يبقا مدخل جيد لفهم التقليد.
