Overview

This new edition of philosopher Frithjof Schuon’s classic Spiritual Perspectives and Human Facts is a fully revised translation of the French edition, and contains a new extensive appendix of previously unpublished selections from Schuon’s letters and other private writings related to the topics covered in the chapters. Schuon, the foremost representative of the Perennialist school of comparative religious thought, writes on an extraordinary range of subjects, including the limitations of modern civilization and its modes of thought, the role of aesthetics and symbolism in art and nature, the “way of love” and the “way of knowledge” in religion, and the Hindu Vedanta. Of particular interest are the groundbreaking sections on the interplay between love, knowledge and universal virtue in spiritual life.
