Ananda K. Coomaraswamy was engaged in the world not only as a scholarly expositor of traditional culture and philosophy, but also as a radical critic of contemporary life. Edited by the author’s son Rama, this book is an introduction to the essential writings of a key figure in the twentieth century revival of traditionalist thought. A. K. Coomaraswamy’s writings have been respected worldwide for demonstrating the universal spiritual content within the traditional art and philosophy of both the East and West.
The Essential Ananda K. Coomaraswamy contains 20 essays on topics reflecting the vast scope of Coomaraswamy's intellect, including those topics with which he is most associated, such as symbolism, Eastern vs. Western thinking, mythology, literature, metaphysics, traditional art, folklore, and even more! For those new to Coomaraswamy's writings, this is an excellent survey, and for those who cannot find some of his out-of-print essays, this collection may be the solution. The introduction by Rama Coomaraswamy includes a wonderful biography of his father with many details and from a perspective that have never been available before.
