Description from the publisher:
This work is a brilliant blending of sound scholarship and spiritual vision. This book deals with the meanings of a science rooted in the sacred, the metaphysical foundations of such science, its contrast to modern science and its pertinence to some of the major issues facing humanity today. In the first part, the author turns to the fundamental questions of the multiplicity of sacred forms. He discusses why it is necessary in the contemporary world to treat sacred science in the context of diverse religions. He also deals with the importance of sacred science in providing a meaningful study that would remain religiously significant of religions themselves. This book brings together Nasr's ideas in a focused and comprehensive treatment. It provides an integrated overview of the breadth and depth of Nasr's thought.
