Frithjof Schuon: The Shining Realm of the Pure Intellect
Fabbri, Renaud

2007, Master of Arts, Miami University, Religion.
This thesis provides an intellectual biography of the Perennialist philosopher and Sufi Shaykh Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998). I have argued that Schuon’s message is best understood as an autonomous path of knowledge (jnana-marga), ritually based on Islam but centered on the Religio Perennis. I have also compared and contrasted it to certain metaphysical doctrines and contemplative disciplines of the Hindu monastic traditions (Advaita Vedanta, Vishishtadvaita Vedanta, Samkhya-yoga, Kashmiri Shaivism, etc…) and certain Gnostic schools of Sufism (wahdat al-wujud, Shadhili ritual practice, etc…), to none of which can it be reduced in the last instance.
