THE ESSENTIAL WRITINGS OF FRITHJOF SCHUON

Frithjof Schuon (Ed. Seyyed Hossein Nasr)

This is the essential thought of one of the century’s leading minds. It contains a biography, chapters devoted to Religion and Revelation, The Nature, of Reality, Art and the Spiritual Significance of Beauty, The Spiritual Life, Eschatology and the After‑life, Criticism of the Modern World and a comprehensive Bibliography. In a language which draws from the technical vocabulary and Symbolic imagery of several traditions– the Platonic, Christian, Islamic, Hindu and Buddhist–Schuon depicts in a dazzling fashion the traditional doctrine of the nature of the One, the descent through the cosmogonic act of the various levels of existence, the question of theodicy and the presence of evil, the role of the Logos in creation, the nature of eternity and the generation of time, causality and numerous other questions, provides answers to criticisms brought by various types of modern philosophy against traditional metaphysics and accentuates the remarkable harmony which exists in various traditions. The writings of Frithjof Schuon are characterized by essentiality, universality and comprehensiveness possessing the gift of reaching the very core of the subject whether they be religious, artistic or related to the cosmic or human orders.

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.
