The publisher World Wisdom has a Perennial philosophy series which contains Traditionalistic books. Among the series are a few titles with texts by different writers, usually ‘old’ and ‘new’ writers. For that very reason, I wanted to read one of these books and my choice fell on this title.

This collection of essays by eminent traditionalists and contemporary thinkers throws into sharp relief many of the urgent problems of today.

was founded in its current form by the French metaphysician Ren? Gu?non, although its precepts are considered to be timeless and to be found in all authentic traditions. It is also known as Perennialism, the Perennial Philosophy, or Sophia Perennis. The term Philosophia Perennis goes back to the Renaissance, while the Hindu expression Sanatana Dharma - Eternal Doctrine - has precisely the same signification.

The other founding figures of the Traditionalist School were the German philosopher Frithjof Schuon and the Ceylonese scholar Ananda Coomaraswamy. To these were added over time such imposing figures as Titus Burckhardt, Huston Smith, Martin Lings, William C. Chittick, Rama Coomaraswamy, Marco Pallis, Whitall N. Perry, Jean-Louis Michon, Michel V?ls?n, William Stoddart, Charles le Gai Eaton, Tage Lindbom, Reza Shah-Kazemi and Professor Seyyed Hossein Nasr."

I find this quote from Wikipedia to be helpful if your thinking about buying this book. The names speak for themselves. Most of these were a major influence on the philosopher Ken Wilber. I'll just leave it at that.

It might not be your cup of tea, but if you want to learn about Sophia Perennis this is a good place to start and to start only.

If you want to look at an in-depth study go with Traditionalism: Religion in the Light of the Perennial Philosophy by Harry Oldmeadow and Kenneth Oldmeadow.

I haven't read the book, but just doing a key word search in it had some very off-putting attitudes. First, not everything 'liberal' is *bad*, you can take the good aspects of something and leave or criticize the part you don't like. The author also referred to Protestants as "destroyers". huh?! I like much of what Perennial Wisdom/Philosophy teaches, but this black and white attitude about certain things is a type of fundamentalism that Sophia Perennis should be against - I would think. I also noticed that some of these authors seem to have a problem with 'democracy' and 'freedom'. Maybe they shouldn't be in the US then. Perhaps a totalitarian dictatorship might be more to their liking. No comprendo!
