ESOTERISM: AS PRINCIPLE AND AS WAY

ESOTERISM: AS PRINCIPLE AND AS WAY

This is a work in which the author explains why esoterism is both possible and necessary and how it applies to the various levels of human experience. It is a question of authentic esoterism, and not of its counterfeits and deviations. The author shows how esoterism is the intellectual principle capable of explaining the formal contradictions of the religious systems that have been highlighted—and presented as a sign of weakness— in the “scientific” age; and also how it constitutes the spiritual way whereby we may reach the truth or reality, despite the confusions and obstacles with ‘which technological civilization and its accompanying philosophy seek to obscure our vision and weaken our resolve. As the author says: “Just as rationalism can remove faith so esoterism can restore it.” New readers of Frithjof Schuon will not fail to be impressed by the vigour and precision of his writing and by his authoritative handling of complex problems, and they will delight in discovering how the economy and “symmetry” of his style are accompanied by a unique poetic quality. The volume now presented is undoubtedly one of the most all-embracing of his works.

Author

Frithj of Schuon

(Shaykh ‘Īsa Nūr al-Dīn)

(1907-1998)

Frithjof Schuon was born in Basle, Switzerland. At sixteen, he interrupted his classical education to earn a living as a designer in Paris, where he studied Arabic and Arabic calligraphy. Subsequent visits to North Africa and the East, prompted by his profound interest in the great religions of the world, resulted in many contacts with Sufi, Hindu and Buddhist authorities, in addition to important links he established with representatives of the spiritual legacy of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches; and two visits to the North American Plains Indians (he was officially adopted by the Lakota tribe) won him a number of close friends, particularly among the Sioux and the Crow.

Of his first book, The Transcendent Unity of Religions, which has been published in six different languages, T. S. Eliot wrote: “I have met with no more impressive work in the comparative study of Oriental and Occidental religion.” In addition to his books, he was a regular contributor to Studies in Comparative Religion, and also contributed to Etudes Traditionnells for over twenty years.
