Author: Frithjof Schuon Publisher: World Wisdom Year: 2000 Pages: 229 Printed: USA ISBN: 0-941532-27-5 Binding: Soft Cover Book Condition: New Weight: 292 gr. Description from the publisher: “Survey of Metaphysics and Esoterism serves as a near complete expression of Schuon’s thought. This book is distinctive in presenting, in one volume, what might be called the three hallmarks of Schuon’s writings. In clear and distinct order, he writes on cosmology and metaphysical principles, on the esoteric and exoteric expression of these principles in the various religious traditions, and on the trials and ultimate transformation of human nature.” —from the foreword by Bruce K. Hanson
Those familiar with Schuon’s writings will know that this transformation involves not only certitude of thought and serenity of mind, but also certitude and serenity of heart. Whether the subject is intellectual, religious, moral or aesthetic, the aim is ultimately a quasi-existential assimilation of certitude that is reflected in man’s centrality, his total and integral nature.
