The Traditional Method
"The order of things that I ... deal with ... is that in which all materials
having a "historical" and "scientific" value are the ones that matter the
least; conversely, all the mythical, legendary, and epic elements denied historical
truth and demonstrative value acquire here a superior validity and
become the source for a more real and certain knowledge .... From the
perspective of "science" what matters in a myth is whatever historical elements
may be extracted from it. From the perspective that I adopt, what
matters in history are all the mythological elements it has to offer."
Julius Evola, Revolt against the modern world.
