The comprehensive truth,

This review is from: The Perennial Philosophy (Perennial Classics) (Paperback)
Many, many authors have tackled the eternal subject of truth. Truth behind existence, truth behind metaphysics, truth behind faith and its eternal antagonist, organised religion. Aldous Huxley has succeeded in covering the issue from beginning top end in a narrative that alienates no one, Not the philosopher, not the scientist, not the moderate church-goer, not the fanatic extreemist. He gives us the common point, the divine ground that links us all and binds all things, including dogmas and theories, in a prose so ethereal and exact all at once, that one wonders from where the words really flow.
