The book opens with a presentation of the three pre-eminent figures in this movement - Rene Guenon, Ananda Coomaraswamy and Frithjof Schuon - now widely regarded as the foremost exponents in the modern era of The Perennial Philosophy, that timeless wisdom which lies at the heart of all religious traditions. Their writings, as well as those of Titus Burckhardt, Marco Pallis, Martin Lings, Whitall Perry, Seyyed Hossein Nasr and others, are dedicated to the elucidation of the metaphysical and cosmological principles which inform the perennial wisdom, and to the explication of the manifold ways in which these principles found concrete expression in traditional societies.
This book explains why no one engaged in religious and cultural studies can afford to disregard the urgent message of the traditionalists who have reminded a forgetful world - in a manner which can be ignored but not refuted - of those principles which everywhere and always remain true. It also demonstrates why any reassessment of contemporary values - now increasingly called into question - must take into account the profound traditionalist critique of the modern Western worldview.
