SURVEY OF METAPHYSICS AND ESOTERISM
Frithjof Schuon “Once again one reaches for superlatives. This book is not for everyone, for it is metaphysically demanding. But for those who think philosophically it constitutes a kind of Principia Metaphysica, setting forth the principles of being with almost mathematical economy and precision. The author reveals himself again as the most comprehen-sive and architectonic metaphysician of our century.” —Huston Smith
***
“A magnificent book, which exceeds what even this master’s most faithf61 readers have been led to expect. Schuon proves anew, by an even greater compression and irradiation of his Wisdom, how inexhaustibly beautiful is the Truth.” —James S. Cutsinger ***
“The highest praise that I can offer concerning the writings of Frithjof Schuon is that they are worthy of their subject matter—the teachings of the great spiritual traditions. Whether one’s views are supported or challenged by these writings, any serious person will feel grateful to be confronted by such a generously discerning intellect and to witness the emergence of authentic contemplative thought in this darkening time.” —Jacob Needleman

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.
