Description from the publisher: Caste as a social system lends itself to a latitude of opinion. Caste as a principle lends itself to no debate whatsoever, being a cosmological reality attached to creatures as inexorable as their own shadows, and it is this reality which Frithjof Schuon delineates with his usual spiritual brilliance. As for the races of humanity, the author demolishes current prejudices and demonstrates with superb imagery the geniou which is unique to each ract while finding its resonances in the others. The third and final chapter on universal art, comes as a fitting and most satisfying conclusion. The theme of the book is man, and man is, as the author remarks, “both work of art and artist. Work of art because he is and ‘image’ and artist because this image is that of the Divine Artist.
