Frithjof Schuon: Life and Teachings (New)
by Aymard, Jean-Baptiste
Publisher: SUNY Press
Book ID: 9780791462065, 0791462064
A comprehensive introduction to the life and work of the preeminent expositor of perennial philosophy.
The first book in English devoted to the religious philosopher Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) to appear since his death, this biography also provides an analysis of his work and spiritual teachings. Relying on Schuon's published works as well as unpublished correspondence and other documents, the authors highlight the originality of Schuon's life and teachings in terms of his consistent focus on esoterism, defined as the inner penetration of sacred forms and spiritual practices vis-a-vis the religio perennis, the eternal wisdom that lies at the core of all sacred paths. Schuon's life, they argue, is a quest for the inner meaning of religious experience, as is indicated by his connections to Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Native American Shamanism. Spiritual seekers from all backgrounds will appreciate this comprehensive study of this towering figure of comparative religion.
“As a contribution to, and commentary on, the work of Schuon and the esoteric tradition, this volume is worth one’s attention.” -- Dialogue and Alliance
“A book every spiritual aspirant would do well to read.” -- East and West Series
"The authors of this book are to be congratulated for having produced this important introduction to the life, works, and thought of one of the most remarkable intellectual and spiritual luminaries of the past century. Their study combines personal devotion to the subject with extensive knowledge drawn from both oral and written sources not generally available. This book will likely become a primary source in future years." -- from the Foreword by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
"Frithjof Schuon was a man whose private life, largely unknown to all but a small circle of friends until his death, was of a single substance with his message. This excellent book goes a long way in clarifying that remarkable unity." -- James S. Cutsinger, author of Advice to the Serious Seeker: Meditations on the Teaching of Frithjof Schuon
Jean-Baptiste Aymard is an independent scholar and writer and has edited Frithjof Schuon: Connaissance des Religions. Patrick Laude is Professor of French at Georgetown University and author of The Way of Poetry: Essays on Poetics and Contemplative Transformation.
