Biography

French writer, the author of "Symboles de la Science Sacree" and "Le Roi du Monde." Guenon apparently looked upon the modern world as a manifestation of Kali Yuga (with its interest in democracy, mass culture, and materialism and philosophy which has become purely human in character). "Truth is not a product of the human mind; the truth exists independently of ourselves, and it is for us simply to apprehend it."
