About the Author

ALDOUS HUXLEY (18941963) was an English writer who spent the latter part of his life in the United States. Though best known for Brave New World, he also wrote countless works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and essays. A humanist, pacifist and satirist, he wrote novels and other works that functioned as critiques of social norms and ideals. Aldous Huxley is often considered a leader of modern thought and one of the most important literary and philosophical voices of the 20th century.
Huston Smith (1919 - 2016) is widely regarded as one of the world's most influential figures in religious studies. He wrote thirteen books on world's religions and philosophy; his book, The World's Religions, (originally titled The Religions of Man) has sold over three million copies and continues to be a popular introduction to comparative religion. He taught at Washington University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, and the University of California at Berkeley, and influenced multiple generations of readers, artists, scholars, and students.


"That Aldous Huxley knew the reality of God is beautifully expressed in these essays.--JACQUELINE HAZARD BRIDGEMAN, from the Preface
"A genius . . . a writer who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine."--The New Yorker
"Altogether excellent. ... The Divine Within is an illuminating read in its totality, exploring such subjects as time, religion, distraction, death, and the nature of reality.--Maria Popova, Brain Pickings
