Read full description of the books:

The essentials of Burckhardt, is a series of selected articles, that I guess did sum the whole of Burckardht's ideas, except for the ones regarding evolution ( that are to be found in his Mirror of the intellect).
Burckhardt's stance, is a meticulous observation of the entire spectrum of different religions, and itemizing their "identical" primordial essence. He tracks the rituals to their esoteric origins, and tries to seek answers from the practitioners of such religion, or such sect, or such Tariqa... If I could say so, he's an adept of those who learn directly from men rather than consume themselves in an endless reading.
His smooth and subtle way of arguing against some of the modern aspects ( to not say all), is way gentler than the radical battle that Guénon has declared against Modern society, which still makes sense rather than the "mystical" utterance of Schuon, of Whom I had scarcely read, and seldom understood of its plain meaning.

Ebook Essential Titus Burckhardt: Reflections on Sacred Art, Faiths, and Civilizations (Perennial Philosophy Series): Reflections on Sacred Art, Faiths, and Civilizations (Perennial Philosophy Series) read Online! Titus Burckhardt (Ibrahim Izz al-Din after his Islamic name), a German Swiss, was born in Florence, Italy in 1908 and died in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1984.He devoted all his life to the study and exposition of the different aspects of Wisdom tradition.

He was an eminent member of the "Traditionalist School" of twentieth-century authors. He was a frequent contributor to the journal Studies in Comparative Religion along with other prominent members of the school.
Burckhardt was the scion of a patrician family of Basel. He was the great-nephew of the art-historian Jacob Burckhardt and the son of the sculptor Carl Burckhardt. Titus Burckhardt was a contemporary of Frithjof Schuon – leading exponent of traditionalist thought in the twentieth century – and the two spent their early school days together in Basel around the time of the First World War. This was the beginning of an intimate friendship and harmonious intellectual and spiritual relationship that was to last a lifetime.

Burckhardt was, as his grandfather, a connoisseur of Islamic art, architecture and civilisation. He compiled and published work from the Sufi masters: Ibn Arabi (1165–1240), Abd-al-karim Jili (1365–1424) and Muhammad al-Arabi al-Darqawi (1760–1823).
