Islam and the Destiny of Man answered a lot of inner questions for me just when I was caught in the labyrinth of several trends, and to this day it continues to do so. Charles Le Gai Eaton has stroked up a masterpiece that is cohesive in content and form. This blend of Sophia, true to the annals of human history and thought cannot fail to impress the seeking mind.
The pages of this book are as richly interwoven as Eaton’s own background: He is Swiss born from an English extraction; along with a mother who grew up in France. The author’s experiences during childhood made him highly skeptical of everything. By the time he was at Cambridge he quit believing in God.
During the period that followed, his quest for symbolism along with his chance to meet L.H. Myers, T.S Eliot followed by Rene Guenon profoundly increased his ability to have his questions answered and in this intensification of understanding he met Martin Lings. The writings of traditionalists such as Frithjof Schuon further influenced Eaton. A certain key in unraveling perennial philosophy lies in the works of Gai Eaton.
No doubt - Islam and the Destiny of Man is highly effectual in conveying a sense of satisfaction to the reader, with an unmatched style and depth – you’ll want to read more about the return to the primordial state.
