This World and That


.This article was originally written during my studies at Hsi Lai University (now the University of the West).  Since the original paper ran over 25 pages, I have broken it up into six unequal parts:

1.  Introduction: The Givens
2.  Aldous Huxley and the Perennial Philosophy, Part 1:
.....(Two Definitions of the Perennial Philosophy)
3.   Aldous Huxley and the Perennial Philosophy, Part 2:
.....(The Two Worlds)
4.   Carl Jung and the Two Personalities
5.   Mircea Eliade and  the Two Orders of Reality
6.   Joseph Campbell and the Right Reading of Myth

As you can see by the above outline, the article is an examination of the thinking of four seminal perennialists.  True, it's a bit dry and academic.  But I think it will serve as a good introduction to many of the ideas found throughout this site.
