Schuon is known as a philosopher in the literal sense of the word, a “lover of wisdom.” It is a wisdom that is inseparable from a sense of the sacred, which is the unique prerogative of humankind. The diverse subjects covered by these essays include a discussion on the symbolism of the human body, an outline of spiritual anthropology as well as a chapter on the structure and universality of the conditions of existence.



Underlying this diversity of topics, is a perspective that combines mathematical rigor with a kind of musical profundity. The entry of the Absolute into the world of time and space gives birth to the traditional worlds, the great Revelations that manifest in so many ways both Divine Unity and human immortality. As Schuon writes, “the man for whom each Message is providentially destined must recognize in it what is best in himself; he cannot escape the truth of his call any more than he can escape existentially the reality of his heart."
