This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: The search for knowledge and wisdom has always been a many-sided pursuit. Throughout human history, mystics and seekers have shared powerful and intuitive views about the Divine, while skeptics and nonbelievers have been quick to explain these beliefs away as self-deception. But the Truth is more complex and evolving than either of these approaches-hence the need for philosophers who work to separate and connect the divine and the natural, the subjective and the objective, and the relative and the absolute. Through an experimental and open-minded approach to the world of spirituality, the philosophy of perennialism recognizes the foundation that all of the world's religious traditions have always had in common, regardless of culture, location, or generation. It also inspires meaningful reflections and revelations regarding the nature of the divine, the meaning of eternity, and the purpose of life itself. This academic look at perennialism provides a thorough evaluation of the spiritual philosophy from three directions: mystical, skeptical, and pragmatic. Through these varied points of view, The Perennial Wisdom provokes meditation and thought regarding some of life's most challenging mysteries, as seen through the eyes of students of the perennial philosophy.
