Hillsdale: Sophia Perennis, 2003. Traditional esoterism, though capable of the highest degree of elaboration, is based on a few first principles; Absolute Reality, hierarchical manifestation, the necessity for initiation, the centrality of the spiritual Heart, etc.; which can be stated simply. In The Esoteric Path, Luc Benoist does just this for the monumental writings of the great metaphysician Rene Guenon. If ever there was a primer on traditional metaphysics and esoterism, one that does not dumb down its subject but rather opens a door to profound spiritual depths waiting to be explored, it is this book. Paperback in new condition. Item #9475
Translated, with an additional chapter, by Robin Waterfield; 136 pages.
