    Post The Differentiated Man and the Rejection of Marriage in an Age of Dissolution

    Julius Evola in his work "Ride The Tiger" takes the stance that the Differentiated or Traditional Man for the sake of his own spiritual development and integrity should avoid marriage and close emotional relationships as in this present age of the Kali Yuga such institutions have lost the relevance and sacred significance once accorded during the Golden Age.

    I quote:"I this epoch of dissolution it is hard for the differentiated man to become involved in marriage or family in any way. It is not a matter of ostentatious anticonformism, but a conclusion drawn from a vision consistent with reality, in which the imperative of an inner freedom remains.
    In a world like the present, the differentiated man must be able to have the self at his disposal, all his life long. It is not for him to form any ties in this realm, any more than ascetics or mercenaries in another epoch would have done. It is not that he is unwilling to assume even graver burdens: the problem refers instead to that which, in itself, is devoid of any meaning."

    Evola contends that modern marriage has had a false sacral aspect forced upon it and consequently much petit-bourgeois morality has been imposed upon the said institution which it did not have in the ancient Aryan world.
    The differentiated man must reject such hypocracy and false imposed morality that does not accord with his own Weltanschauung.
    That in itself does not infer a blanket rejection of marital relationships but such ties can impede the path of the Ariya on his way to his own personal Awakening.

    So let me guess, Evola was another loser like Nietzsche, who spent his time with prostitutes? Did he die of Syphillis complications also?

    I think one of the best things anyone interested in Eugenics can do is have a wonderful family - treat them like gold, more valuable than anything else in the world, and raise them well.

    Nietzsche was an aescetic, as was Evola. Scoob, that statement was manufactured ad hominem BS. Nietzsche died of brain cancer, not syphilis. You don't seem to understand exactly what AryanKrieger is saying. He's saying that a man who holds to Tradition might want to avoid marriage precisely because it is grounded in emotion and material desires rather than dedication to something superhuman. Might does not equal should. If you can find an intelligent and beautiful wife with traditional ethics and go ahead and make kids, go for it. If you can't, Evola suggests not go to for marriage. Simple.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Well said. That was a good summary of Evolas teaching on this subject.

    No, Evola lived a chaste life and during his 40s in the closing days of WWII he was crippled and confined to a wheelchair as the result of injuries he sustained in an air raid in Germany.

    There is an argument for philosophers staying solitary, simply because they can give all their concentrated attention to one thing: their philosophy.

    When a philosophical man marries and has children, his focus changes, quite naturally; he then 'loses it'.

    Thinkers like Schopenhauer and Nietzsche remained single and solitary - their IDEAS were their children.

    Without Solitaries like that, the culture would have no ideas to pass on.

    What does 'differentiated man' mean though?

    One who detatches himself from the spectacle of modern popular culture and opinions.

    I do agree on marriage in relation to the philosopher, however.

    Why only in relation to the philosopher? We are after all discussing the concept in relation to the Differentiated Man are we not? The 2 are potentially overlapping but not necessarily identical roles.

    Evola uses the term in the context of the man of "Tradition".
