LIGHT ON THE ANCIENT WORLDS
Whether it be the domain of religion, art, theology or epistemology, the perspective of Schuon remains always metaphysical. He is first and foremost a metaphysician concerned with the reality of religion, art, human society or the cosmic order.
In this book, Schuon deals with a wide range of metaphysical, doctrinal and practical matters. His profound insights into the great religious traditions elucidate with remarkable clarity the essential aspects of spiritual wisdom, which he says can be found in every true and complete way. In a time of increasing scepticism or anxious bewilderment and confusion in relation to the realm of the spirit this book will repay thoughtful study. Some readers will find that religious ‘problems’ when related to their appropriate levels will disappear; others that new questions and perceptions will awake. Whatever the religion a man may follow Schuon’s remarkable writings should provide much material for thought and no small measure of spiritual stimulus.
“If I were asked who is the greatest writer of our time. I would say Frithjof Schuon without hesitation.” –Martin Lings
