About the Author

Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) is best known as the foremost spokesman of the Perennial Philosophy. A gifted artist and poet as well as the author of over twenty books on religion, metaphysics, sacred art, and the spiritual path, Schuon's books have been translated into over a dozen languages and are respected by academic and religious authorities alike. Harry Oldmeadow was Coordinator of Philosophy and Religious Studies at La Trobe University Bendigo, Australia, until his recent retirement. He is a well-respected authority on the Perennialist school of comparative religion and the author of Frithjof Schuon and the Perennial Philosophy. He lives in Bendigo, Australia.


"The title [Esoterism as Principle and as Way] may be said to sum up his writings as a whole."--Martin Lings, author of Ancient Beliefs and Modern Superstitions
"A wide-ranging compendium of philosophic and spiritual enlightenment."--William Stoddart, author of Remembering in a World of Forgetting
"Frithjof Schuon was one of the leading metaphysicians and visionaries of the twentieth century, and his brilliant writings penetrate extraordinarily deeply into the meaning and message of the great religions and sacred traditions of humanity. Esoterism as Principle and as Way belongs to his most important works."--Seyyed Hossein Nasr, George Washington University, editor of The Essential Frithjof Schuon
"As a point of entry to Schuon's teachings, I often recommend Esoterism as Principle and as Way, a book that proceeds directly into the heart of the universal and perennial message of this metaphysician."--James S. Cutsinger, University of South Carolina, editor of Splendor of the True: A Frithjof Schuon Reader
"Schuon is the pre-eminent exponent of what has been called the traditionalist or perennialist school. . . . The esoterism with which Frithjof Schuon is concerned is . . . nothing other than the sophia perennis itself, the timeless wisdom that lies at the heart of the diverse religions."--Harry Oldmeadow, author of Frithjof Schuon and the Perennial Philosophy
