6.   Guénon, Rene   PERSPECTIVES ON INITIATION   Picture
Publisher: Ghent Sophia Perennis, 2001. Presents initiation as the transmission, by the appropriate rites of a given tradition, of a 'spiritual influence' which presents the 'beginning' (initium) of the spiritual journey. It is unique in giving a comprehensive account both of the conditions of initiation and of the characteristics of organizations qualified to transmit it. Translated by Henry D. Fohr; Edited by Samuel D. Fohr; 303 pages. Paperback in new condition.

7.   Guénon, René   SYMBOLS OF SACRED SCIENCE   Publisher: New York Sophia Perennis, 2004. Here Guenon reveals himself as a masterful exegete of myth and symbolism. This text unveils the cosmological meanings of root symbols organized under such general headings as: The Center of the World, Cyclic Manifestation, Symbolic Weapons, Axial Symbolism and the Symbolism of Passage, The Symbolism of Building, and The Symbolism of the Heart. Far more than a catalogue of myths and symbols from many traditions, 'Symbols of Sacred Science' lays the foundation for a universal esoteric symbology. Guenon demonstrates the fundamental unity - across all cultures and ages - of the images with which the absolute clothes itself in its cosmic self-revelation. 456 pages. Fine condition in a fine dust jacket.

Appr.:   AUD 53.25 CAD 51.90 EUR 36.28 GBP 28.28 JPY 4,100.00 MXN 683.33 ZAR 585.71

8.   Guénon, René   MISCELLANEA   Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. To spare readers extended research into obscure back issues of French journals long out of print, Miscellanea gathers together for Anglophone readers various articles by René Guénon, and by 'Palingenius', his pseudonym during the time of La Gnose, a journal he founded in 1909. These articles have been divided into three categories: Metaphysics and Cosmology, Traditional Arts and Sciences, and Some Modern Errors. From the first chapter of part one, 'The Demiurge', which we believe is the first text he ever submitted for publication (in 1909, at the age of twenty-three) to 'Profane Science in Light of Traditional Doctrines', of April-May 1950, more than forty years elapsed. 197 pages. Paperback in new condition.

Appr.:   AUD 27.27 CAD 26.58 EUR 18.58 GBP 14.48 JPY 2,100.00 MXN 350.00 ZAR 300.00

9.   Guénon, René   THE METAPHYSICAL PRINCIPLES OF THE INFINITESIMAL CALCULUS   Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. Guénon agrees with Plato that mathematics can furnish symbols for metaphysics. But it cannot fulfill this function if metaphysical principles in themselves are not understood - which they clearly are not by the vast majority of modern mathematicians and scientists. Guénon sees Leibnitz, discoverer of the infinitesimal calculus and major critic of Descartes, as a significant modern philosopher of mathematics, whose insights are worth placing in a metaphysical context-something Leibnitz himself tried to do. Guénon helps make these efforts more metaphysically intelligible, and transposes them to a higher level. In Metaphysical Principles of the Infinitesimal Calculus, René Guénon points the way toward a rediscovery of mathematics as the handmaiden of metaphysics. 132 pages. Paperback in new condition.

Appr.:   AUD 25.97 CAD 25.32 EUR 17.70 GBP 13.79 JPY 2,000.00 MXN 333.33 ZAR 285.71

10.   Guénon, René   MAN & HIS BECOMING ACCORDING TO VEDANTA   Picture
Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. Guénon published this fundamental doctrinal work in 1925. After asserting that the Vedanta represents the purest metaphysics in Hindu doctrine, he acknowledges the impossibility of ever expounding it exhaustively and states that the specific object of his study will be the nature and constitution of the human being. Nonetheless, taking the human being as point of departure, he goes on to outline the fundamental principles of all traditional metaphysics. He leads the reader gradually to the doctrine of the Supreme Identity and its logical corollary-the possibility that the being in the human state might in this very life attain liberation, the unconditioned state where all separateness and risk of reversion to manifested existence ceases. Although Guénon chose the doctrine of the Advaita school (and in particular that of Shankara) as his basis, Man and His Becoming should not be considered exclusively an exposition of this school and of this master. It is, rather, a synthetic account drawing not only upon other orthodox branches of Hinduism, but not infrequently also upon the teachings of other traditional forms. Neither is it a work of erudition in the sense of the orientalists and historians of religion who study doctrines from the 'outside', but represents knowledge of the traditionally transmitted and effective 'sacred science'. Guénon treats other aspects of Hinduism in his Introduction to the Study of the Hindu Doctrines and Studies in Hinduism. 200 pages. Paperback in new condition.

11.   Guénon, René   SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY & TEMPORAL POWER   Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. Spiritual Authority and Temporal Power is an analysis of cyclical manifestation, and more specifically of the relationship between royal and sacerdotal power. In accord with the Hindu doctrine of manvantaras and Plato's depiction of historical degeneration in the Republic, Guénon views history here as a series of 'revolts' of lower castes against the higher. The kshatriyas (warriors) revolt against the brahmins (priests), thus setting the stage for a revolt of the vaishyas (loosely, the bourgeoisie), as in the French revolution-and, finally, the shudras (the proletariat), as in the Russian revolution (which Guénon does not touch upon in this work). From one point of view, this is a progressive degeneration; from another it is entirely lawful, given the 'entropic' nature of manifestation itself. External, historical descent reflects an inner degeneration: knowledge (the celestial paradise) is eclipsed by heroic action (the terrestrial paradise), which is in turn overrun by the inertia and agitation of the passions. Yet the nadir of degeneration is also the point of renewal: the dawning of the Heavenly Jerusalem-spiritual Knowledge-which begins a new cycle of manifestation. 87 pages. Paperback in new condition.

12.   Guénon, René   TRADITIONAL FORMS & COSMIC CYCLES   Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. This book opens with the key article 'The Doctrine of Cosmic Cycles', followed by two pieces on Atlantis and Hyperborea. Two sections follow, concerned respectively with the Hebrew Tradition and the Egyptian Tradition. The former comprises five articles concerned primarily with the Kabbalah and the Science of Numbers, and the latter includes three articles on Hermes and the Hermetic Tradition. Book reviews are inserted at relevant points. 113 pages. Paperback in new condition.

13.   Guénon, René   THEOSOPHY: HISTORY OF A PSUEDO-RELIGION   Publisher: New York Sophia Perennis, 2004. Many readers of Guénon's later doctrinal works have longed to hear the tale of his earlier entanglement, and disentanglement, from the luxuriant undergrowth of so-called esoteric societies in late nineteenth-century Paris and elsewhere. The present work documents in excoriating detail Guénon's findings on what did, and did not, lie behind the Theosophical Society founded by Madame Blavatsky and Colonel Olcott in 1875. Much further information has of course come to light since this book was written, but it has never been superseded as a fascinating record of the path of a master metaphysician through this maze. A particularly unusual feature is its extensive treatment of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, which has recently attracted the attention of scholars of the occult. 335 pages. Paperback in new condition.

Appr.:   AUD 32.47 CAD 31.65 EUR 22.12 GBP 17.24 JPY 2,500.00 MXN 416.67 ZAR 357.14

14.   Guénon, René   THE SPIRITIST FALLACY   Publisher: New York Sophia Perennis, 2004. Many readers of Guénon's doctrinal works have hoped for translations of his detailed exposés of Theosophy and Spiritism. Sophia Perennis is pleased to make available both these important titles as part of the Collected Works of René Guénon. Whereas Theosophy: History of a Pseudo-Religion centers primarily on historical details, The Spiritist Fallacy, though packed also with arcane facts, is unique in revealing how one of the greatest metaphysicians of our age interprets the phenomena, real or alleged, of Spiritism. The doctrinal expositions that accompany his astonishing account offer extraordinarily prescient insight into many deviations and 'psychological' afflictions of the modern mind, and will be as valuable to psychological practitioners and spiritual counselors as to historians of esoteric history. It also offers a profound corrective to the many brands of New Age 'therapy' that all too unwittingly invoke many of the same elements whose nefarious origins Guénon so clearly described many years ago. 347 pages. Paperback in new condition.

Appr.:   AUD 32.47 CAD 31.65 EUR 22.12 GBP 17.24 JPY 2,500.00 MXN 416.67 ZAR 357.14

15.   Guénon, René   THE KING OF THE WORLD   Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. This remarkable book grew out of a conference headed by René Guénon, the sinologist René Grousset, and the neo-Thomist Jacques Maritain on questions raised by Ferdinand Ossendowski's thrilling account in his Men, Beast and Gods of an escape through Central Asia, during which he foils enemies and encounters shamans and Mongolian lamas, whose marvels he describes. The book caused a great sensation, especially the closing chapters, where Ossendowski recounts legends allegedly entrusted to him concerning the 'King of the World' and his subterranean kingdom Agarttha. The present book, one of Guénon's most controversial, was written in response to this conference and develops the theme of the King of the World from the point of view of traditional metaphysics. Chapters include: Western Ideas about Agarttha; Shekinah and Metatron; The Three Supreme Functions; Symbolism of the Grail; Melki-Tsedeq; Luz: Abode of Immortality; The Supreme Center concealed during the Kali-Yuga; and The Omphalos and Sacred Stones. 77 pages. Paperback in new condition.

16.   Guénon, René   INSIGHTS INTO ISLAMIC ESOTERISM & TAOISM   Picture
Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. This small volume brings together a number of Guénon's early articles relating to Sufism (tasawwuf), or Islamic esoterism. A later article, 'Islamic Esoterism', has also been included, since it articulates so well the particularities of initiation in Islam by defining the fundamental elements of tasawwuf: shari'ah, tariqah, haqiqah. The first constitutes the necessary fundamental exoteric basis; the second, the Way and its means; the third, the goal or final result. In the other chapters, Guénon expresses with his usual synthetic clarity what tawhid and faqr are, and gives examples of traditional sciences, relating angelology to the Arabic alphabet, and chirology to the science of letters ('ilm al-huruf). A number of book and article reviews give further insights into Islamic cosmology. Some may feel that the essay 'Taoism and Confucianism' here included has little relevance to Sufism and Islam. However, such writers as Toshihiko Izutsu and Sachiko Murata have drawn many parallels between the two traditions. Confucianism, concentrating on social and interpersonal norms, functions as a kind of shari'ah in the context of Chinese religion, while Taoism, like Sufism, is precisely the esoteric Way. 112 pages. Paperback in new condition.

17.   Guénon, René   INITIATION & SPIRITUAL REALIZATION   Picture
Publisher: New York Sophia Perennis, 2004. Initiation and Spiritual Realization is the closest thing to a work on 'spiritual direction' René Guénon ever wrote, touching as it does upon such vital topics as the transmission of initiatic grace, the various types and functions of the spiritual master, obstacles the aspirant is likely to encounter, different modes of contemplation, and the degrees of spiritual realization. A companion volume to Perspectives on Initiation, where Guénon had defined the nature of initiation and of the organizations qualified to transmit it, Initiation and Spiritual Realization was the first thematic collection of Guenon's articles to appear after his death. And one doctrine expressed in this book stands out as particularly timely: that esoterism is not and cannot be a religion in itself, since to take it as such is to reduce it to an 'alternative' exoterism, and a heterodox one at that. Initiatic esoterism can only be legitimately and effectively practiced within the context of one of the established, revealed religions. 208 pages. Paperback in new condition.

18.   Guénon, René   THE MULTIPLE STATES OF THE BEING   Picture
Publisher: Hillsdale Sophia Perennis, 2004. First edition n this work, Guénon offers a masterful explication of the metaphysical order and its multiple manifestations-of the divine hierarchies and what has been called the Great Chain of Being-and in so doing demonstrates how jñana, intellective or intrinsic knowledge of what is, and of That which is Beyond what is, is a Way of Liberation. Guénon the metaphysical social critic, master of arcane symbolism, comparative religionist, researcher of ancient mysteries and secret histories, summoner to spiritual renewal, herald of the end days, disappears here. Reality remains. 98 pages. Paperback in new condition.
