Summary of "Logic and Transcendence"
Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) is the foremost representative of the “Traditionalist” or “Perennialist” school of comparative religious thought. This new edition of Logic and Transcendence, his most important philosophical work, is a fully revised translation from the French original and contains an extensive Appendix with previously unpublished selections from Schuon’s letters and other private writings. Logic and Transcendence contains chapters devoted to specifically philosophical questions such as the contradiction of relativism, the notion of the concrete and abstract, and the limitations of rationalism; it also contains some of Schuon’s most succinct theological discussions concerning both Christian and Islamic theology. The last part of the book turns to diverse questions of the spiritual life, including a discussion of the function of the spiritual master and concludes with a study of man and certitude.

Details on "Logic and Transcendence"

Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) is the foremost representative of the “Traditionalist” or “Perennialist” school of comparative religious thought. This new edition of Logic and Transcendence, his most important philosophical work, is a fully revised translation from the French original and contains an extensive Appendix with previously unpublished selections from Schuon’s letters and other private writings. Logic and Transcendence contains chapters devoted to specifically philosophical questions such as the contradiction of relativism, the notion of the concrete and abstract, and the limitations of rationalism; it also contains some of Schuon’s most succinct theological discussions concerning both Christian and Islamic theology. The last part of the book turns to diverse questions of the spiritual life, including a discussion of the function of the spiritual master and concludes with a study of man and certitude.

Seyyed Hossein Nasr, another major author of the Traditionalist school wrote about Logic and Transcendence: “This long work is Schuon's most important philosophical opus in the sense of containing long chapters devoted to specifically philosophical questions such as relativism, the notion of concrete and abstract and rationalism. But the book also contains some of his most succinct theological discussions concerning both Christian and Islamic theology. The last part of the book turns again to diverse questions of the spiritual life including a discussion of the function of the spiritual master and concludes with a study of man and certitude.”


About the Author and the Editor

Frithjof Schuon

Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) is best known as the foremost spokesman of the “Traditionalist” or “Perennialist” school and as a philosopher in the metaphysical current of Shankara and Plato. He wrote more than two dozen books on metaphysical, spiritual, artistic, and ethnic themes and was a regular contributor to journals on comparative religion in both Europe and America. Schuon’s writings have been consistently featured and reviewed in a wide range of scholarly and philosophical publications around the world, respected by both scholars and spiritual authorities. Besides his prose writings, Schuon was also a prolific poet (see a listing of Schuon's poetry books) and a gifted painter of images that always portrayed the beauty and power of the divine, and the nobility and virtue of primordial humanity.

World Wisdom features a series titled "The Writings of Frithjof Schuon", which includes many new editions of classic books by Schuon in new translations and with additional materials. Our online Library contains many articles and poems written by Frithjof Schuon, allowing readers to see a representative sample of his remarkable body of work.
