Seyyed Hossein Nasr is a world-renowned scholar on Islam, Sufism, and the Perennial Philosophy, and is the author of over fifty books and five hundred articles on topics ranging from comparative religion to traditional Islamic philosophy, cosmology, art, ecology, and mysticism. The Essential Seyyed Hossein Nasr is an anthology of 21 of his most representative essays, including several rare articles which have not been easily available in the U.S., carefully selected and edited by William C. Chittick, a former student of Prof. Nasr and leading scholar of Islam and Sufism.
Dr. Chittick chose these essays to be truly representative and illustrative of the wide range of topics on which Dr. Nasr has written for over fifty years. Readers new to Dr. Nasr's work will find here a wonderful introduction to his thought. Readers already familiar with his writings will certainly find some new materials previously unavailable to them, as well as clear proof for why Seyyed Hossein Nasr is considered among the most important Traditionalist writers.
