Modern psychology is at an impasse as it searches anxiously for new therapies to address the increasing occurrence of mental illness in contemporary society. In this groundbreaking anthology, leading authors from the perennialist school, including Huston Smith, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and Frithjof Schuon, draw on the age-old insights of the world's wisdom traditions to argue that modern psychology—behaviorism, psychoanalysis, humanistic and transpersonal psychology—overlooks the specifically spiritual factors contributing to mental health and illness.

In a busy western world, the essential truths of religious tradition are often forgotten or ignored. Whilst preserving the essential unity of all religions, traditionalism is concerned with the preserving of particular forms which gave religion its raison d' etre, while at the same time ensuring its spiritual efficacy. Oldmeadow also considers many other influential writers: Titus Burckhardt, Marco Pallis, Martin Lings, Whitall Perry, Seyyed Hosein Nasr.

Intelligent and perceptive, this examination of the universal truths inherent in all cultures and religions is a powerful, scholarly analysis of Western esotericism’s deepest teachings. John Holman contends that the perennial philosophy is not only at the heart of all world religions, but also of all major schools of thought and writings by the great thinkers and philosophers—no matter how diverse the presentation of their perceived truths. In an accessible way, Holman sheds light on a number of esoteric topics including: The Absolute and the One, the Great Chain of Being, the Philosopher’s Stone, the Seven Spirits, the evolution of consciousness and the Eternal Now—paying particular attention to the subject of time. This thought-provoking book helps us to develop a better understanding of the nature of reality and our potential for transcendence—and revolutionizes the debate on the perennial philosophy.
