Du soufisme - Idées
René Guénon (November 15, 1886 – January 7, 1951), also known as Shaykh `Abd al-Wahid Yahya, was a French author and intellectual who remains an influential figure in the domain of metaphysics , having written on topics ranging from metaphysics, "sacred science" [ 1 ] and traditional studies [ 2 ] to symbolism and initiation . In his writings, he proposes either "to expose directly some aspects of Eastern metaphysical doctrines", [ 3 ] these doctrines being defined by him as of "universal character", [ 4 ] or "to adapt these same doctrines for Western readers [ 5 ] while keeping strictly faithful to their spirit"; [ 3 ] he only endorsed the act of "handing down" these Eastern doctrines, while reiterating their "non-individual character". [ 6 ] He wrote and published in French and his works have been translated into more than twenty languages.
