Against the Modern World: Traditionalism and the Secret Intellectual History of the Twentieth Century. Mark Sedgwick 2004. 369 pages
I had never really intended on reviewing any academic books on this blog, but I think that this book may be of interest to big readers outside of academia as well, so I will review it below. This is a book that I saw referenced a few months ago, during an online discussion between different people, and which brought me back to the philosophical school of Traditionalism or Perennial Philosophy. Apart from the very catchy title, the person who mentioned it is also someone whose expertise in this field I respect, so I read it as soon as I was able to get a copy of it mostly out of curiosity, and the book did not disappoint, but it’s still not for everyone.
