Synopsis

This is the first comprehensive study of the intellectual and spiritual message of world-renowned philosopher Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998), the foremost spokesman of the “Perennialist” or “Traditionalist” school of comparative religious thought. Intended primarily as an introductory guide to Schuon’s writings, Harry Oldmeadow’s book focuses on Schuon’s exposition of metaphysics and the “transcendent unity of religions”, his presentation of the religious traditions of East and West (including the spiritual heritage of the American Indians), his criticism of the modern world, and his views on sacred art and beauty. Also included is an overview of Schuon's paintings and poetry, as well as his insights on prayer and virtue in the spiritual life. This ground-breaking work provides the general reader with a coherent and systematic account of the Perennial Philosophy and covers all aspects of Schuon’s work.
