Frithjof SchuonNotify me of new titles added by this author
Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) is best known as the foremost spokesman of the "Traditionalist" or "Perennialist" school and as a philosopher in the metaphysical current of Shankara and Plato. He wrote more than two dozen books on metaphysical, spiritual, artistic, and ethnic themes and was a regular contributor to journals on comparative religion in both Europe and America. Schuon's writings have been consistently featured and reviewed in a wide range of scholarly and philosophical publications around the world, respected by both scholars and spiritual authorities. Besides his prose writings, Schuon was also a prolific poet (see a listing of Schuon's poetry books) and a gifted painter of images that always portrayed the beauty and power of the divine, and the nobility and virtue of primordial humanity.
World Wisdom features a series titled "The Writings of Frithjof Schuon", which includes many new editions of classic books by Schuon in new translations and with additional materials. Our online Library contains many articles and poems written by Frithjof Schuon, allowing readers to see a representative sample of his remarkable body of work.
James S. CutsingerNotify me of new titles added by this author
James S. Cutsinger (b. 1953) is an author, editor, and teacher whose writings focus primarily on Perennialism and the theology and spirituality of the Christian East. Cutsinger is a professor of Theology and Religious Thought at the University of South Carolina and an advocate of Socratic Teaching. He serves as secretary to the Foundation for Traditional Studies, is a widely recognized authority on the Traditionalist or Perennialist school of comparative religion, and is perhaps best known for his work on Frithjof Schuon.
In 1975 Cutsinger received his B.A. from Cornell College in Political Theory and Russian Language and Literature, and in 1980 he received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in Theology and Religious Thought. Beginning with his doctoral studies at Harvard, and continuing throughout his professional career, Cutsinger's scholarly work has been focused on challenging contemporary academic assumptions concerning the nature of man and the limits of knowledge. This has meant calling the bluff on his fellow scholars of religion, the majority of whom have acceded to the dominant scientism of the age and have thus felt obliged to approach their subject as a purely human phenomenon, whether as historians, anthropologists, psychologists, or critical readers of texts. Cutsinger prefers to listen instead to the traditional sages and saints, both of East and West, whose voices he has brought to bear in critiquing the critics and with the aim of opening the hearts and minds of his readership to a larger view of themselves and Reality.
