In accordance with Schuon’s preference we have not listed either Dimensions of Islam or Islam and the Perennial Philosophy among his English-language books. “My doctrinal message is in my French books and their translations. It is only indirectly and imperfectly in the English compilations Dimensions of Islam and Islam and the Perennial Philosophy, which were produced for contingent reasons and do not correspond to my intentions” (personal paper, “Remarks on the Appendix”, quoted in Frithjof Schuon: Life and Teachings, p. 178). The contents of these two compilations can be found within one or another of Schuon’s “French books and their translations”. For further information see section below “Chapter locations for out of print books”.
