Description

The articles that comprise Symbols of the Sacred Science appeared in a number of French journals and were only collected after the author’s death. Though many of his themes, such as those of the Grail, the Tree of Life, and the Center of the World, are dealt with in other books, the present volume constitutes a kind of 'bibliography' of books Guenon found neither time nor pressing call to write, for nearly every article is so pregnant with meaning that it could have been expanded into an independent work. But the same thread of symbolic exegesis woven here into so rich a tapestry does also run through many of Guenon’s other books, including Traditional Forms and Cosmic Cycles, The King of the World, and The Reign of Quantity and the Signs of the Times. As traditionalist scholar Roger Maridort writes: 'The traditional cosmological knowledge to be found in these works constitutes a sum-total of such knowledge that has no equivalent in any language.' And we might add that, drawing upon a wide-ranging knowledge of mythology and religious symbolism, and a profound grasp of metaphysical truth, Symbols of the Sacred Science moves at a different level than the works of such writers as Robert Graves, Joseph Campbell, and Carl Jung and his followers, whose commentaries are restricted largely to psychological and socio-historical themes. Far more than a simple catalogue of myths and symbols from many traditions, Symbols of the Sacred Science lays the foundation for a universal esoteric symbology. In this work, Guénon demonstrates the fundamental unity -- across all cultures and ages -- of the images with which the Absolute clothes itself in its cosmic self-revelation.
