Read full description of the books:
"The prerogative of the human state is objectivity; the essential content of which is the Absolute. There is no knowledge without objectivity of the intelligence; there is no freedom without objectivity of the will; and there is no nobility without objectivity of the soul . . . Esoterism seeks to realize pure and direct objectvity; this is its raison d'etre."
These are the opening words of a work in which the author explains why esoterism is both possible and necessary. It is the intellectual principle capable of explaining the formal contradictions of the various orthodox religions as well as the errors of materialistic and deconstructionist modern thought. In addition, esoterism is the way by which man may realize his connection with absolute Truth or Reality, despite the confusions and obstacles with which technological civilization and its philosophy seek to obscure our vision and weaken our resolve. In the author's words, "Just as rationalism can remove faith, so esoterism can restore it."

Read information about the authorFrithjof Schuon was a native of Switzerland born to German parents in Basel, Switzerland. He is known as a philosopher, metaphysician and author of numerous books on religion and spirituality.
Schuon is recognized as an authority on philosophy, spirituality and religion, an exponent of the Religio Perennis, and one of the chief representatives of the Perennialist School. Though he was not officially affiliated with the academic world, his writings have been noticed in scholarly and philosophical journals, and by scholars of comparative religion and spirituality. Criticism of the relativism of the modern academic world is one of the main aspects of Schuon's teachings. In his teachings, Schuon expresses his faith in an absolute principle, God, who governs the universe and to whom our souls would return after death. For Schuon the great revelations are the link between this absolute principle--God--and mankind. He wrote the main bulk of his metaphysical teachings in French. In the later years of his life Schuon composed some volumes of poetry in his mother tongue, German. His articles in French were collected in about twenty titles in French which were later translated into English as well as many other languages.
