On the ‘Neo-Pagans’ and Their Delusions

The notion of “paganism” is an interesting one, in that such notions of a pagan revival have achieved popular currency both among certain Traditionalist circles as well as in many progressive cliques.

A common theme in the philosophia perennis adopted by some Traditionalists is that of the “transcendent Unity of all religions”.  This perspective had its origins in the inter-war period, and was first discussed by René Guénon in the 1920’s, and, a decade later, in some more considerable detail by Frithjof Schuon, a Swiss-born metaphysician.  In this line […]
