"On all that is mentioned in the subtitle of this book, Titus Burckhardt is no doubt the twentieth century's greatest authority, except for his own teachers, Frithjof Schuon and Ananda K. Coomaraswamy. Whatever page I turn to in this book, I am immediately fascinated.

This book is the much-anticipated collection of writings from Titus Burckhardt, one of the great Perennialist authors of the 20th century.

Burckhardt's writings are characterized by a profound grounding in the Perennial Philosophy and integral metaphysics, a remarkable history of contacts with traditional peoples and their civilizations, a true artist's knowledge of and love for traditional art, a scholar's knowledge of diverse source materials not accessible to most modern seekers, and a gifted teacher's ability to make all of these things understandable and of deep interest to readers. This collection will bring together many of Burckhardt's most representative writings that will amply demonstrate these qualities.




"Titus Burckhardt was one of the most authoritative exponents of the perennialist school. His work was centrally concerned with the interrelationships of Truth, Beauty and Goodness, with the principles informing traditional arts and sciences, and with the nexus between intellectuality and spirituality. This marvellous compilation of some of his most arresting and significant work will command the attention of anyone seriously interested in the ways of the spirit."
—Kenneth Oldmeadow, La Trobe University at Bendigo
