    Books like this are hard to review as they tread in areas where language simply becomes inadeuate Anything that is put on paper doesn’t seem to capture it; Huston Smith says in the introduction that “the truthis buried so deep in the human composite that they cannot communicate it not in any way the majority will find convincing” xv So we can resort to talking about things like duality the conflict of o

    Schuon approaches the perrenial philosophy in two ways by making the distinction between the esoteric and the exoteric form of a religion and by assessing there unity according to pure metaphysics unlike most by making comparisons And even when making comparisons they are mostly made according to temperaments and dispositi

    Perennialism or better especially Traditionalism is of an understandable answer to the challenges for religion after the enlightenment considering uestions and conclusions not posited before than an answer in itself To problematic is the mix of universalism and isolationism which mirrors in a telling way the thoughts of pan europeanists and ethnopluralists The main problem with these groups be they religious

I ll start off with this uote as a warning to other fools like me We wish to state clearly that this is never with the intention of convincing opponents whose minds are already made up but simply to enable those who wish to understand to get a glimpse of certain aspects of reality it is for the latter alone that we are writing and we decline to enter into polemics that would have no interest for our eventual contradictors or for ourself p 94 What this means is that Schuon is working with certain very controversial axioms eg the existence of God his Grace his Mercy and his Love which he does not even always explicitly state and which he has no intention of calling into uestion even for argument s sake So don t come into this book expecting to be convinced like I didAn experience similar to Buber s I and Thou in that both were very interesting books to read but are very hard to rate This is by no means a study but of an extended essay which is not to say it doesn t have research behind it Schuon seems I recognize my limitations to make any judgements on the matter to be astonishingly well versed in the three monotheisms the Abrahamic religions of Judaism Christianity and Islam which are the focal point of this work contrary to what the title and the cover art of this uest Book edition might imply but there are occasional glimpses into erudition on other religious traditions though to grasp their significance one should be better versed in religious studies than I By the way true to his heritage German Schuon writes in extremely long run on sentences and I seem to have been infectedI m sure the basic premise of the book is obvious Even though the whole is not very focused and even feels slightly unfinished it is packed with interesting observations and comments regarding the three monotheisms and their essential unity Even if one doesn t believe in this Unity with a capital u for the same reasons as Schuon one can still glean many a fascinating insight from the work For example Schuon asserts that Christianity is essentially an esoteric offshoot of Judaism With all the new information on primitive Christianity that s come to light in the half a century since Schuon wrote this book it has become a very attractive theory Islam Schuon sees as a synthesis of the exoteric and esoteric bents of Judaism and Christianity which emphasize Law and Mercy respectively This synthesis nature of Islam is Schuon claims the reason for its fundamentalism and totalitarianism so to speak the tendency of Islamic theocracy As a side note all this gives one the impression Schuon holds a sort of Hegelian view of religious historyLike with Buber a summation seems impossible A captivating read Challenging and eually rewarding

Interesting book except that perennialism is an incredible illusion and fallacy in the sense that perennialists argue against egalitarianism in the social order but proceed to tell you that all religions are still eually valid in our time They tell you that they understand the absolutist claim in each religion but they are above it and relativise it and then proceed to deny being relativists They tell you that one has to be traditionnal but being traditional entails being absolutist and totally non perennialistic Fallacy upon fallacy in the name of misunderstood esoterism Additional implicit contradictions lie in the fact that one cannot claim to talk from the point of view of the absolute then proceed to tell you that his reference point is esoterism through his understanding of Advaita Vedanta and Shankara this is Schuon s claim himself needless to say it is already relativised If there are many roads with the intention of reaching the top of the mountain with divine providence some roads get blocked and something else is made availableTaking the Limits of Religous Expansion in another way contrary to what Schuon means with it that is we can see that there is one religion that has reached unlike all others parts of all them From Andalusia to India to China And this since its first centuries and original expansion This geographical hint is enough to let some people ponder Proving that it is indeed made for all human mentalities whether they eat with chopsticks spoons or with the hands directly Therefore the constant Schuonian obsession of putting semitic below aryan fallsClaims to see the absolute in all religions but through most of his books puts the semitic ones below the aryan not so universal after all it seems As this implies there are things better than others On s emploie favoriser d autres auteurs comme le font les anglo saxons lorsu ils mettent en avant Frithjof Schuon L unit transcendante des religions est une mani re d occulter l unit immanente proclam e par l isl m dont la loi s impose tous car elle fixe le r gime traditionnel final de la pr sente humanit C A GilisI find it very peculiar that the most available english edition is now published by uest Books Theosophical Publishing House since 1993 Taking in consideration that the author is supposedly against such nonsense and syncretism something is definitely fishy here

The transcendent unity of religions Frithjof Schuon The book s main premise is that all main religions share a common ground This is actually the crux of the school of thought called Perennial Philosophy By analogy we can take the example of the duality between the platonic world of ideas and the world of appearancesthe reflection of the ideas the essence of of religions is the same but is dissipated into multiple forms and adapted to the culture of the civilization Ideas are eternal while their reflections are transitory subject to the changes of space time and causality Although many objects are relatively distinct they may be the shadows of the same idea or archetype from which they originated And how should someone discover the essence of all religious ideologies The author distinguishes between exoterismthe religious knowledge known to the masses and esoterismthe knowledge known for the initiates While the exoteric knowledge may be dependent on the culture the exoteric one may be considered universal or transcendent I have to admit that I m already familiar with this unity of religions popularized intensely by the New Age movement The New Age movement is obviously the monstrous product of the postmodern era where syncretism hybridization and juxtaposition are the main characteristics of the zeitgeist On the other hand while the Perennial Philosophy bases its ideas on the true tradition the New age movement is just a mumbo jumbo mixture between different pieces of every religions pseudo spiritualism channeling etc or simply put the monstrous creature of the dr Frankenstein of the religions
